The Canadian Higher Education Tableau User Group brings together higher education professionals from across Canada and helps them expand their Tableau skillsets, get inspired from others in the space, and uncover insight through using Tableau Desktop, Prep, Server, and Online.


This user group aims to be virtual 3 times per year, and in-person once (coinciding with a conference, ideally).


Our first in-person session is going to be a part of the Canadian Institutional Research and Planning Association in Calgary on Tuesday, October 23, 2018 featuring Amy Gao from the University of Alberta and Stephen Childs from York University. Conference registration is required in order to attend.


Future session dates are being planned for:


- January, 2019

- April, 2019

- July, 2019

- October, 2019


We are actively seeking speakers for sessions once per quarter. If you are interested in sharing your institution's or department's story of how you use Tableau, please reach out -


We very much need support from Tableau professionals working within academic institutions to make this user group successful. Plaid Consulting is helping to organize speakers and events to get the user group started, but the goal is that the user group will become user driven over time. If you're interested in helping with logistics, or interested in hosting an event at your institution, please let us know.


Looking forward to learning more about how you're using Tableau!
