Think Tanks

CanBIM Think Tanks are member-driven task groups based around specific industry processes and subject matter that address challenges, and develop tasks, and projects that seek to improve efficiency, collaboration and productivity within the Canadian building and infrastructure industry.


CanBIM provides an opportunity for forward-thinking organizations to work collectively with their peers to further the industry’s common goal of improving best practices and driving efficiencies that shape our civilization. CanBIM Think Tanks further industry’s common goals through the following initiatives:

  • Opportunities to collaborate and communicate with other industry leaders
  • Opportunities to educate and share information with the industry
  • Opportunities to influence the direction of the organization and the industry
  • Development of documentation to improve process and procedures within the industry

Current Think Tanks

Think Tanks are focused on specific areas and sectors of the built environment where industry members collaborate to deliver initiatives that support and drive innovation around industry wide challenges.

Think Tanks Seeking Members

As the Think Tank initiative evolves it is expected that there will be a need to form new Think Tanks around new subject matter or process-based initiatives. A minimum of three volunteers are required to start up a CanBIM Think Tank with Board approval. If you are a CanBIM Member and you would like to participate, we encourage you to sign up through the website today!
