IISE's Canadian Region (formerly Region 14) comprises all the provinces and territories of Canada. We have more than 500 active IISE members in this region, with the majority in Ontario (48 percent) and Quebec (25 percent). Most of our professional members are active in the Toronto and Quebec chapters. Our 10 student chapters are also active with upcoming industrial engineers.

Our mission is to provide value to our members by offering a connection point that represents the needs, concerns and support efforts of industrial engineers across Canada.
