Professional Designations and the Use of RPP

APPI’s RPP members have rights and responsibilities defined in both the Alberta Professional Planner Regulation and APPI’s bylaws.
With the goal of aiming for a consistent approach across Canada, the  various Provincial, Territorial Institutes and Associations (PTIA’s), including APPI, have committed to encouraging RPP members to members to adopt the practice of listing the ‘RPP' designation immediately following their name, followed by ‘MCIP’- RPP, MCIP- where applicable and when also denoting the national affiliation with CIP.   Click here for further information.
