Why hold a membership?

Holding a membership in the CDPCBO will allow us to better track and manage the association membership condition of certification and ensure that CCDPs have access to and are up to date on information and training related specifically to career development and employment issues. This is the practice and policy for certifying bodies across most sectors in Canada and part of our bylaws as a not-for-profit organization. Membership also provides access to CDPCBO Annual General Meetings and voting privileges.

Other benefits of membership are being listed on the Directory of Ontario certified CDPs,, as well as future opportunities for professional development, reduced rates for some conferences and workshops offered by other associations and organizations, etc. As more and more people are certified, more benefits of membership will be developed in consultation with members.
