The sections of O. Reg. 455/09 that set out the qualifications required to become a planner as well as the renewal and appeals process are sections 27.1 through to 27. 7. The requirement for recommendations by the planner is in section 18.2.
Starting in early 2012, the ministry will be posting information on its website to raise awareness about the: qualifications required to become a licensed planner; locations and dates of training courses; application process and; associated fees.
