Memberships & Designations For Professionals and Employers
Recognize the leadership and value that our EP professionals contribute across the environmental sector
Our memberships and designations support a diverse group of environmental and sustainability professionals and organizations across Canada. From environmental scientists and engineers to auditors and executives, our Environmental Professionals in training (EPt), Environmental Professionals (EP), EP Auditors (EPCEA and EP EMSLA) and EP Employers all proudly showcase expertise across every environmental specialization.
EP Employer Designation
Our philosophy for EP Employer is to encourage organizational commitment to sustainability advancements through demonstrated green leadership, supporting employees with their dedication to environmental work, internal and external initiatives for environmental sector progression and environmental plans that are anticipatory and preventative, rather than reactive.
As an EP Employer, you will join more than 3000 certified Environmental Professionals in Canada to demonstrate your commitment to the advancement of the environmental sector.
Environmental Professional Designation
Environmental Professionals (EP) and Environmental Professionals in-training (EPt) are the next wave of change-makers in the constantly evolving field. EP members are recognized for their specializations, receive up-to-date resources, and learn from our leading professional development tools to stay on top of the latest industry trends.
As an employer, supporting your EP staff inspires public trust and demonstrates your commitment to sustainable practices. It helps strengthen your business too by showing you prioritize professional development, human resource policies, and value the future of both our industry and the environment.
