OPPI derives its mandate from the Ontario Professional Planners Institute Act, which came into force in December 1994. OPPI also has the mandate to grant the Registered Professional Planner (RPP) designation, govern the rights and responsibilities of its members, and set academic, experience and examination requirements for membership. The Institute's policies and procedures are set out in the OPPI By-Law.
OPPI is led by a volunteer Council elected by the membership. Online nominations to participate as a member of Council are accepted annually between February 1 and April 1. Council is supported by Standing Committees, District Teams, Program Committees and Strategy Groups.
As a not-for-profit, OPPI is funded entirely by membership fees, program and activity revenues. These may include advertisements in the Y Magazine and naming and sponsorship opportunities. A sponsorship with OPPI offers a prime opportunity to showcase partner organizations to professional planners and municipal decision-makers. To explore these opportunities, contact our Director of Finance & Administration.
Volunteer Leadership sits at the heart of OPPI. Member participation is sought through District Teams, Program Committees and Strategy Groups. Members also contribute to events, oversee exams, mentor new planners and fill other roles that are key to the development and support of their fellow RPPs.
