The College of Vocational Rehabilitation Professionals
2016 AGM - September 21 at 12 noon EST
July 20, 2016
We hope you have been enjoying the summer weather this July, be it in the cooler, more volatile Western and Eastern provinces or the hot humid drought experienced in central Canada.
There are a few College items for your attention.
1. Have you updated your credentials to CVRP, CVRP(P), CVRP(F) or CVRP(D)
Have you made the change yet?
In response to your feedback, we've added the "R" to your credential to more clearly define our role and function as Vocational Rehabilitation Professionals. We are now Certified Vocational Rehabilitation Professionals (CVRPs).
Your new certificate has been uploaded into your CVRP Registrant Profile. If you haven't seen it, go to you profile now to download your new CVRP certificate. All CVPs must now use CVRP; all MCVPs must use CVRP(F) or CVRP(D)
. CVA's and CVS's can apply for the CVRP(P) status and are encouraged to call the Registrar to discuss next steps.

2. 2016 AGM moved from December 7th to September 21st:
Your Board of Directors elected to move the 2016 AGM from December 7th
up to September 21st. Please set the date aside and keep it free so, as a registrant of the College, you can exercise your rights and give appropriate guidance to the Board of Directors as to how you wish your profession to be regulated. The AGM will be run via the Adobe Connect webinar platform, which allows access by internet to all registrants across Canada. A call for Nominations for Director vacancies will be posted by the end of July. The Financials Statement for 2015-2016 will be posted in the members only section when ready.
