CIRI Guides

Guides are published on an ad hoc basis as the industry changes or as updates are required. Documents found here are available complementary to members and for purchase by non-members. The most current documents available include: CIRI's Guide to Developing an Investor Relations Program - Third Edition and CIRI's Standards and Guidance for Disclosure and Model Disclosure Policy - Fifth Edition.

CIRI Research

Every two years, CIRI conducts the Investor Relations Responsibilities & Compensation Survey. The 2012 report is available for purchase. The 2014 survey is currently in the field and will be published in 2015.

CIRI is conducting research with IROs to identify investor relations best practices and trends. The first survey, on guidance practices, is complete and the report is currently being prepared. Subsequent research will be conducted on other topics that are important to IROs.

IR eLibrary

Launched in 2014, CIRI has created an IR eLibrary which contains sample documents from IROs that are not publically available. These include templates, plans, schedules and policies developed by investor relations professionals that CIRI members can use as resources when developing or updating their own documents.

The first phase of the IR eLibrary has been launched with documents on Disclosure and Marketing. The second phase was launched in August 2015 with documents on Crisis Communications and Media Relations. The third phase was launched in November 2016 with documents on Board Interaction.


ChatIR is a communication channel, featuring discussions with industry experts on IR issues, trends and best practices.

CIRI's Standards & Guidance for Disclosure and Model Disclosure Policy, Fourth Edition


We recognize the importance of providing guidance to our members as they review their disclosure practices and policies. As such, we have updated CIRI's Standards and Guidance for Disclosure and Model Disclosure Policy.

This publication recognizes the impact of evolving best practices, as well as Canadian accounting and regulatory changes since its last update in April 2006.

A complimentary copy was provided to our members. Non-members may purchase this publication by clicking here.
