Canadian Institute of Planners
About The Canadian Institute of Planners
The Canadian Institute of Planners (CIP) works on behalf of over 6,900 planning professionals nationally, and has served as the voice of Canada’s planning community since 1919.
Planning addresses the use of land, resources, facilities and services in ways that secure the physical, economic and social efficiency, health and well-being of urban and rural communities. Our members work in both the public service and the private sector, across fields such as land use planning, environmental resource management, land development, heritage conservation, social planning, transportation planning, and economic development.
