Join the Institute

Join the Canadian Institute of Planners and become part of the Voice of Canadian Professional Planning!

CIP strongly encourages all members to join their Provincial and Territorial Institutes and Associations (PTIA). For some categories of CIP membership, PTIA membership is a pre-requisite. If you have an interest in Canadian professional planning, but are not in the Planning field, you can enroll in CIP's subscriber program as a Public Subscriber or Professional Ally. 

Please check our membership chart for more information.

For a limited time, new public subscribers will receive free registration to the 2019 WTPD World Town Planning Day online conference, and valid membership until December 31st, 2020. 

Interested? Apply to be a CIP public subscriber here: https://www.cip-icu.ca/Forms/CIP-Subscription-Form
 

Planners outside of Ontario or Quebec

Canadian professional planners, who practice outside of Ontario, Alberta or Quebec, are automatically members of CIP through their membership with their PTIA. Applying for membership with your local PTIA will automatically ensure membership with CIP.

Planners from Ontario, Québec, or outside of Canada

Professional planners from Ontario, Québec, or outside of Canada must apply for membership with CIP directly.

If you're an existing member of CIP, please advise us of any changes to your membership status or category via telephone or email
