Logo for the Canadian Centre for Diversity & Inclusion

Expert Panelist, Cathy Gallagher-Louisy, and the CCIP Team at the Canadian Centre for Diversity and Inclusion (CCDI) are pleased to announce that registration is now open for the first exam, on November 21st, to become a Canadian Certified Inclusion Professional (CCIPTM). CCDI has for many years incorporated the GDIB into its assessment tools, programs, events, and publications, and was the Canadian partner for 2016 GDIB launch events.

After a long consultation involving more than 200 diversity and inclusion practitioners across Canada, CCDI has created a rigorous certification process to assess practitioners’ experience, skills and knowledge, with a particular focus on the Canadian context and legislation. As a diversity and inclusion practitioner, this exciting opportunity offers formal recognition of your experience and will boost your career. To be eligible to enter the certification process, you must have at least three years of relevant diversity and inclusion work experience and at least two references who can attest to this work.

To become certified, first you will write a multiple-choice exam, which can be taken remotely. Then you will prepare and submit a Professional Experience Dossier. Once you’ve successfully completed these two steps, you will become a Canadian Certified Inclusion Professional: your name will be added to an online registry of CCIPs on the CCDI website and you will be able to add CCIP to your signature! If you sign up as part of the first group, you will enjoy unique advantages.

For more information, please visit the website at and download the CCIP Certification Handbook, or email the CCDI at Hurry! Registration closes on October 9, 2017.
