2021 APPI Member Renewals
Given these difficult and unprecedented times, APPI Council has made the decision to waive any increase to the APPI member fees for 2021 and there will be no increase to the Professional Liability Insurance Premium (PLI) for 2021. CIP’s fees are based on a 2% increase over 2020, in keeping with last year’s inflation rate.
The 2021 APPI/CIP member renewal invoices will be issued electronically on or before December 11, 2020. The electronic invoice is your official invoice for the purposes of payment and a hard copy of the invoice will not be mailed unless you make a specific request to the APPI office. Member renewal fees are due by January 4, 2021. If you have not received your invoice by December 11, 2020, please email [email protected].
Renew Your APPI Membership
To access the online payment system, click on the Renew Your APPI Membership tab on the membership page of the website - click here. Please note that to renew via this option, you will be required to first login as a member and you may only renew your 2021 membership under your current member status. To inquire about changing your member status for 2021, prior to renewal, please email the APPI Registrar at [email protected].
Special Considerations During Life Change or Challenges
If you are currently not practicing planning as the result of a life change or challenge (for example, parental leave, health or disability considerations, unemployed, recently retired or retiring at the beginning of 2021) you may be eligible to change from RPP or Candidate practicing status to RPP or Candidate Non-Practicing. For more information on RPP and Candidate Non-Practicing Status and how to submit a request to change member status, click here.
Consequences of 2020 Continuous Professional Learning (CPL) Non-Compliance AND/OR Not Renewing Membership for 2021
The Professional Planner Regulation does not provide for the re-instatement of former or lapsed members of APPI. Therefore, if you are experiencing challenging circumstances that may prevent you from meeting your regulated member obligation of 2020 CPL compliance and/or paying your 2021 member fees, you are encouraged to contact the APPI office immediately, rather than let your membership lapse.
There is no option for those who are removed from the roster for 2020 CPL non-compliance and/or non-payment of their 2021 fees, to be reinstated at a later date. Members who are removed from the APPI roster for 2020 CPL non-compliance and/or failure to remit their 2021 member fees, and who wish to rejoin the Institute in the future, must re-apply as new members and re-certify via the processes in place and via the Professional Standards Board for the Planning Profession in Canada.
