Call for Volunteers

The Professional Education and Examination Committee of the Professional Standards Board for the Planning Profession in Canada (PSB) is looking for a 3-7 qualified volunteers from across the country to serve on an Advisory Group to review content it has developed related to Indigenous Planning for its Professional Examination for the certification of Registered Professional Planners/Licensed Professional Planners in Canada, including Examination questions and Study Guide materials.

The work would involve independent review of the materials and 1-3 meetings with the group within the next 3-6 months to discuss feedback on the materials. Members of the Advisory Group have significant expertise in Indigenous Planning and may also be part of Indigenous communities. The Advisory Group may be called upon for future consultation as well.

We hope to put together the group by the end of June 2020. Please send any questions or interest in participating to [email protected].
