Student Membership

Students applying for a student membership must fill out and submit a Student Application Form. Forms can be scanned and e-mailed to communications@atlanticplanners.org.

There are two categories of student members:

  • Accredited: those in a Professional Standards Board (PSB) accredited planning degree program within Atlantic Canada (currently only graduate and undergraduate planning degree programs at Dalhousie University)
  • Non-accredited: those in a related degree program who are intending to pursue either a degree or a career in planning.

Current membership fees can be found on the Categories and Fees page.
