National Conference

The Most Anticipated Event of the Year

CIP’s annual national conference combines professional planning education and research, experiential workshops, networking, career development, and fun over three days.

  • Over 1000 delegates participating in-person and online 
  • Special programming for new attendees and students
  • Eligible for Continuous Professional Learning (CPL) units for all sessions attended

Upcoming Conference

CIP and the Alberta Professional Planners Institute (APPI) will host “CONNECTION” in Edmonton, Alberta.

Pre-Registration Now Open

This year, CIP is pleased to offer advance conference invoicing.

With the financial year-end coming up for many municipalities and employers, options are available for pre-registration and payment for the CIP/APPI national conference.

Past Conferences

Previous events have taken place across the country. Our past themes have reflected big ideas and timely conversations that affect planners and the communities they live and work in.

Inclusion Fund

In support of our Strategic Plan priority of More Equitable Planning, Together, CIP has established a fund to help include more individuals who would not otherwise have the opportunity to attend a CIP national conference. 

In 2023, we supported 15 individuals (members and non-members) and we look forward to offering the program in 2024.  

Applications are now open.
