The right to grant designations, places the Institute in a unique club of professional organizations including:

  • The Law Society of Upper Canada
  • Institute of Chartered Accountants
  • Professional Engineers
  • Ontario College Physicians and Surgeons, and,

Other organizations that, by legislation are empowered to establish qualifications for membership and ensure these qualifications are maintained.
