President's Message

Dear Chapter Members:

My name is Gary York, and it is my pleasure to represent you, the members of the Toronto Chapter of the Credit Institute of Canada, as your President.

We are a strong and active Chapter, the largest in Canada, and it takes the dedication and hard work from many volunteers to keep the chapter alive and relevant. A great way to develop soft skills for personal and business growth is to participate on a Toronto Chapter Board Committee.  Please consider volunteering time and talent in helping to enhance your membership. For more information contact our Executive Administrator, Carolin Hwozdyk, CCP by email at  

As your President, I dedicate myself to the membership and commit to keeping traditions alive which align to future goals. The chapter is always looking for new ways to engage with the membership and provide networking opportunities. With your involvement we will create a better tomorrow based on past strengths.

Over this past year our Chapter events were well received. If you haven’t had a chance, I personally invite you to attend one soon. 

We continue to run the informal evening Networking Nights which offer brief information sessions and time to network with your fellow colleagues. Connections have been made at these evenings which have led to employment opportunities. Ideas for networking evenings are always welcome.
Your seminar committee searches long and hard to find seminar speakers with subjects that are relevant, informative and educational. Let the team know of any seminar topics that would address your needs. 

Our annual Golf Tournament is held in September at Red Crest golf course. It is a fun day for golfers of all levels–first timers to pros.  If you are unable to spend the day, join us for dinner. Come and take advantage of networking opportunities and you will also have a chance to win prizes. 

Graduation is held in November at the Toronto Old Mill. This is a beautiful setting to host an event to honor all of our new CCP’s, Credit Specialists and award winners. Family and friends are welcome to join in the celebration.

View our website and link up to the Institute on social media through LinkedIn, Facebook or Twitter.

Thank you for the opportunity and privilege of being your President.


Gary York, CCP
