Professionals Building Better Communities. 

The Civic Institute of Professional Personnel (CIPP) is the union for municipal professionals in the Ottawa region. We advocate for our members and for the kind of communities we know we can have – safe, fair, and thriving.

What We Do

CIPP members are the professionals who work for the people of Ottawa. Through collective bargaining, representation, and advocacy, CIPP works for its members so they can focus on the work they are passionate about. We are committed to our members, our community, and to quality public services.


CIPP advocates for our members and the communities they serve.


Our labour relations staff help our members navigate a wide range of workplace issues. From questions about your collective agreement to human rights and workplace health and safety, we are here to help.

Collective Bargaining

CIPP bargains with a member-first approach by including and listening to its members. Our negotiating teams are here to make sure our collective agreements reflect our members’ needs.
