Welcome to the Alberta Professional Planners Institute

We are the face of the planning profession within Alberta, Northwest Territories and Nunavut. We serve the public interest by providing regulation, advocacy, promotion and services for our members.

Planning is a key agent in shaping our communities and leading how we adapt to and manage the physical, economic and social forces that affect our communities.

The  Alberta Professional Planners Institute (APPI) is a professional regulated organization of private and public sector planners practicing in Alberta, the Northwest Territories and Nunavut.

APPI is governed as a public accountable organization with an obligation to serve the public's interest under the Professional and Occupational Associations Registration Act.
