Participants needed for Indicators Development - Standards Committee Competency Indicators Development Working Group (PTIAs)

In early 2021, planners from across Canada were invited to participate in the development of a national Competency Profile for the Planning Profession in Canada. The draft Competency Profile has been developed for entry to practice with sample indicators, but more work still needs to be done on indicators development. We are hoping that you might be interested and available to participate in the further development of indicators for the competencies.
In the next week or so, Consultants from Human Resource Systems Group (HRSG) will be reaching out to planners who have expressed an interest in the competency indicators development work. Working group sessions will be held online between March 21- April 29, 2022. More details will be shared with interested participants.
We are looking for planners at all stages of development and experience, from a variety of types of planning, from all across Canada. In addition, there will be additional working groups to review the indicators with an equity, diversity and inclusion view. If you are interested in being a participant in the development of indicators for the profession, please complete this brief intake questionnaire:
