Volunteer Wall

To those of you continuing in your volunteer work and to those of you just beginning, we send out a heartfelt ‘thank you’ for your commitment and your efforts in representing our profession, our Institute and our members. We have hundreds of professionals actively volunteering annually—provincially and nationally—dedicating over 30,000 person-hours to the advancement of the planning profession.
