A Brief History of Professional Organizers in Canada

In the late 1990’s a group of organizers started an on-line networking group and some organizers in Toronto started meeting in person. In 1999 a Volunteer Task Force operated a networking group. They met monthly for business-building opportunities in office space donated by Harold Taylor. In 2000, Professional Organizers in Canada (POC) was born.

The association continued to grow and in 2006 reached the 500 member mark. That year at our national conference, POC, NAPO and ICD signed a reciprocal agreement formalizing the relationship between our associations. This agreement allows certain privileges to each others’ members including being able to attend each others conferences at regular member rates.

POC continues to be a leader in education and training for professional organizers. Member benefits include free attendance at chapter meetings, access to business liability insurance customized for professional organizers, discounts on training courses and conference fees as well as an informative newsletter. POC’s “Find an Organizer” Directory is the biggest member benefit – it is THE place to be listed if you are a professional organizer in Canada.
