Retired & Non-Practicing Members

As a member of the Canadian Institute of Planners (CIP), you are part of the largest network of professional, student, and retired  planners in Canada.

Retired Member
If you are a professional member who has fully retired from planning and left in good standing, join the Institute as a Retired Member or switch your membership type to Retired Member. 
Please note: The registered MCIP® title cannot be used once you are retired. CIP does not have a retired designation i.e. MCIP (ret.) is not official and cannot be used.

If you are going on a leave of absence (parental, medical, sabbatical, or other), it isn’t possible to put your CIP membership on hold; however, you may change your membership type to Non-Practicing. This change would first need to be done with your Provincial and Territorial Institute and Association (PTIA). Once your PTIA has made the changes, please inform us and we will update your membership status with CIP.
