Partners in Planning

Community and Citizen Involvement

The Partners in Planning program (PIP) is a free, award-winning certificate program offered by the Federation of Calgary Communities in partnership with The City of Calgary. The program is geared towards helping community association planning volunteers and the public to develop skills for effective participation in the planning process. 

Certificate Program

To earn your Partners in Planning certificate, you need to take 3 core courses and 1 elective course. The 3 core courses cover the basics of the planning system in Calgary and every year, we offer a variety of elective courses. There is no time restriction to complete the courses so you can spread them out over a few years if you like. Also, you can retake courses or take other courses that interest you at any time.
