Becoming a Member

Effective September 1, 2012, all applications for Candidate membership in CIP and our provincial affiliates are being directed to a new arms-length body, the Professional Standards Board for the Planning Profession in Canada (PSB). The PSB also now administers the certification process for the Registered Professional Planner (RPP) designation, and is also responsible for the accreditation of university planning programs in Canada.

For more information and for application forms, please refer to the PSB website or contact the PSB office.

Please note: This does not apply to residents of Quebec nor to student applicants from anywhere in Canada.

Quebec residents, please contact l’Ordre des urbanistes du Qu├ębec (OUQ). Student applicants, please apply directly through your provincial affiliate rather than the PSB.
