We work with a variety of companies that are implementing vCIO services, and think it’s important to have a perspective on the general vCIO movement worldwide. We have thus created a series of research country by country.

Although the largest vCIO movement is driven by the US, we are starting this series of analysis on our home soil. So let’s see how the Virtual CIO movement is doing in Canada.

vCIOs by city in Canada

Most Canadian vCIOs are operating in the largest metropolis: Toronto. However on a provincial level Alberta and Ontario are tied. Nine out of ten vCIOs operate in three of the ten Canadian provinces: Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia. Due to Ontario’s high representation, 6 % of vCIOs are French-English bilingual.
vCIOs in Canadian universities
The 5 most popular schools are in the west and the mountains; chief among them the British Columbia Institute of Technology and the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology.
vCIO experience in years - Canada
Canada is a driver of the international trend with respect to experience and company size, so most vCIOs have more than 10 years of experiences and are hired by companies with fewer than 200 employees - most with only have 11-50 personnel. It is important to note that more than 20% of Canadian vCIOs are going to large (10,000+ employees) organizations, a number three times more than the international statistic.
MSP sizes hiring vCIOs in Canada
Canadian vCIO roles show a higher participation than the international average in focus on sales, consultancy and business development as opposed to the technology. This reflects their unique interests, as most of them are members of the IT Sales Global Community on LinkedIn (though this group is not among the 6 most popular social media groups for vCIOs who focus more on technology challenges).
