I am an urban planner with more than 20 years of extensive planning experience in both public and private sector in the Meddle East (Dubai, UAE). I got a permanent residence in Canada and intend to land in November. I am looking forward to be certified by CIP (Canadian Institute of Professional Planners). Please advice me regarding the following:
1- Considering my planning experience, do I still have to sit for Exam B?
2- Can my Middle Eastern experience be considered toward fulfilling the required work period?
3- Is there a specific format for the portfolio?
4- I understand that there is a special application rout for planners with more than 15 years of experience. Does in apply to me?
Many thanks for you all.
