Welcome to the website for the Canadian Association of Certified Planning Technicians, the “CACPT”.
Our Association, now in its 42nd year of operation, is dedicated to maintaining high standards for Planning Technicians and other related planning professionals throughout the country.
In 1978 a Provincial Charter was issued to CACPT with a mandate to create an association that would bring together Planning Technicians in Canada. In 1995, the Association was incorporated by a Letter Patent as a not-for-profit corporation with Industry Canada. The organization is dedicated to protecting and maintaining the high standards of its members
Full members have the right to vote, hold office and to use the title “Certified Planning Technician” or “CPT” after their names on correspondence, etc. Full and Associate members receive a certificate bearing their name and the Association seal. Upon approval and payment of dues all members receive a copy of the Association By-law and membership card. Members of the Association also receive job circulations and are connected to our wide network of employers and fellow members across the country.
Our 2019 AGM & Conference, “Planning from Suburban to Urban” in Mississauga, ON, was another fun and informative day for our Members. Thank you to all the volunteers, Council, those that attended, our sponsors and the speakers.
Our 2019 Alberta Workshop, that I attended, “Municipal Plan Development: The Time Is Now” held in Edmonton, AB, was also a big success. Thank you again to our Alberta Council Members, including our volunteers and speakers, including to Olds College for attending and assisting with the Workshop. Also, thank you to Stephen Morriss and James Warren for arranging the 4th Annual Norman Pearson Golf Classic, as well as to our sponsors and luncheon speakers.
Thank you to everyone for their continued support, including at our accredited schools, Olds College, Langara College, COGS, Mohawk College and Fanshawe College.
I look forward to seeing everyone at school, at a workshop or at a social this upcoming year.
As always, ‘stay connected’ with one another, as well as with the Association.
I value communication with our members so please remember that if you have any questions or comments, feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
