Please Note... PIBC, in cooperation with CIP and our affiliated professional planning associations across Canada, has undertaken a major review and renewal of our Membership criteria, requirements and processes. Substantial changes to the requirements for professional Membership and the process taken by membership applicants to become professional members of the Institute have resulted from this review. These changes came into effect, along with the Institute's revised bylaws, on June 11th, 2012.
