The Voice of Planning in Ontario.

Registered Professional Planners (RPPs) are the specialized professionals who work to improve the quality and livability of communities in Ontario today and for the sustainability of those communities in the future. They work for government, private industry, community agencies and academic institutions in a variety of specialties across the province.

The Ontario Professional Planners Institute (OPPI) has the mandate to grant the RPP designation, govern the rights and responsibilities of its members - over 4,000 professional planners and more than 500 students - and set academic, experience and examination requirements for membership (see our Inspired Knowledge section). The OPPI Professional Code of Practice and Standards of Practice set the benchmark for quality practice among planning professionals, meaning that every community across Ontario served by RPPs can be confident in a sound approach to planning in the public interest.

Watch the video below to find out more about the Institute and its representation of RPPs in Ontario, each playing a pivotal role in informing choices and inspiring communities across this province.
