CanBIM’s vision is to develop a robust community of industry leading practitioners from the Architectural, Engineering, Construction, Owner, Operator and Educational sectors who are proactively engaged in the effective deployment of digital technologies and processes.
Our Mission is to provide our professional, educational, construction, fabrication and supply chain members a collective voice dedicated to digital technologies and processes. We provide our members with advocacy, learning opportunities and best practices for digital technology in a Canadian context while maintaining connectivity with our international partners.
CanBIM will achieve its Vision and Mission by doing the following:
By organizing Canada’s AECO community to achieve a common goal of substantially consistent use of digital technologies and processes in Canada.
Through facilitating and fostering a closer relationship between educational institutions and the AECO industry through innovative learning opportunities and initiatives.
By using our committees and various platforms to develop Best Practices, Scopes of Work, Guidelines and Document Standardization.
By reaching out to industry leaders, speaking on behalf of our members and engaging a broader community directly in debate and initiatives around the Canadian digital transformation and adoption of new technologies and processes.
CanBIM will implement its strategy by achieving the following operational goals:
CanBIM will host Regional and Satellite Sessions where our CanBIM Members and Industry leaders will discuss and decide upon key issues relating to digital technologies and processes.
CanBIM will grow the membership and professional affiliations for the purpose of fostering collaboration, communication and community.
CanBIM will create opportunities to showcase the innovative work of our Members, establishing and recognizing our Members as industry leaders
CanBIM will deliver a Certification benchmark for assessing individuals, companies and educational curriculum against nationally standardized and recognized levels of BIM Competency and Process Management.
CanBIM will actively engage and foster opportunities within the Academic and Research community to ensure future generations of professionals are given the opportunity to develop networks and knowledge.
CanBIM will work toward unifying and engaging Canadian associations, councils, and organizations that advocate for the use of digital technologies and processes within the AECO industry.
Our set of strategic goals are part of a living document that will evolve over time as CanBIM nimbly adjusts to the emerging and rapidly changing BIM environment within Canada and by extension to is trans-border and international partners and peers.
