Centenary Committee

The year 2019 will mark the one hundredth anniversary of CIP. This will be a year of celebration and activities that will increase public awareness of CIP and appreciation for the work and contributions of Canadian professional planners. To achieve this, CIP has established a Centenary Committee, responsible for the planning, coordinating, and reporting of centenary related activities and events. 


Centenary Committee Projects:

Planning Recognition:  The committee has initiated projects that will raise the public profile of planners during the centenary year. The projects include a call for nominations of one or more Canadian planners to be recognized as a National Historic Person, as well as the coordination of official declarations and statements regarding planners to be issued in House of Commons, in provincial legislatures, and at the municipal level. The committee is also investigating the opportunity to establish a Governor General Awards for Planning.

Centenary Toolkit: The committee will develop a toolkit, which will be distributed to potential partners and stakeholders, including planning schools and student associations, the College of Fellows, and the Provincial and Territorial Institutes and Associations (PTIAs), in order to encourage inclusive and varied activities and events across the country that promote the planning profession.

History of CIP: The committee has started doing specific research on historic developments in planning from across Canada. The historic information will be shared with the public through select activities, including an online, visual timeline of key moments in Canadian planning history, and a commemorative Plan Canada issue.
