Join CIP

Connect to Canada’s Largest Planner Network

When you become a member of the Canadian Institute of Planners (CIP), you join Canada’s largest network of planners and planning students – now 9,000+ strong! We are a member-based organization with management complemented by volunteers who support and contribute to our activities on various levels. 

We work closely with Provincial and Territorial Institutes and Associations (PTIAs), which regulate the planning profession and govern the rights and responsibilities of their members, as well as the Professional Standards Board (PSB) who administers the certification process of professional planners on behalf of the PTIAs.

What Type of CIP Member Are You?

Planners are at the forefront of the intense challenges our country is facing. From the climate crisis and housing affordability to social inequities, reconciliation, and the rise of disinformation, planners bring the solutions and ideas needed to help our communities and world thrive.
