Newest RPPs

Each year, OPPI welcomes many new Registered Professional Planners (RPPs) as members from a variety of backgrounds and levels of experience. Only Full Members of OPPI are authorized to use the RPP designation in Ontario.

Our newest RPPs followed and completed the certification process as administered by the Professional Standards Board for the Planning Profession in Canada (PSB), and received their certificates allowing them to practice as RPPs in the Province.

RPPs are the professionals specifically educated, trained and ethically committed to guiding decision makers, the public and stakeholders in all sectors to help inform choices and inspire communities by:

  • Gathering and analyzing information from all sides of an issue
  • Facilitating the inclusion of multiple perspectives and offer objective recommendations and/or options
  • Informing decision makers and remain informed themselves based on extensive knowledge, experience and skill
  • Developing a 360-degree perspective before making any major decision

As a new RPP and member of OPPI, new members can begin including the RPP designation after their name, use the RPP seal and will receive an RPP pin and framed certificate from OPPI.

New members, along with all other practicing members, are required to complete their Continuous Professional Learning (CPL) credits each year. CPL is mandatory and part of professional certification. It is intended to help members keep current and changes and developments in the planning profession, and to stay informed about innovations and leading practices.

OPPI would like to welcome and congratulate our newest RPPs!
