There are currently four emerging chapters in IAP2 Canada. Each chapter will have its own Board of Directors and will plan and organize local events, activities and professional development opportunities.
Members in the Maritimes, and in the Capital region (St. Lawrence) are currently exploring forming local chapters.
Emerging chapters can be established anywhere in the country where there is a local group dedicated to engaging a regional group of IAP2 Canada members. Emerging chapters must sign a Letter of Intent to show their interest and work toward becoming established within a two year timeframe.
Chapters are also eligible for grants from IAP2 Canada to support their activities. Emerging chapters can apply for a chapter development grant and both emerging and existing chapters can apply for a special event grant for activities they undertake to benefit members in their region.
