As president, he will work with Council, professional planners, and key stakeholders to advance INSPIRE OPPI – the Institute’s Strategic Plan.

“I look forward to advancing the planning profession in Ontario,” Ferrigan said. “My objective is to help build a strong and vibrant self-regulating profession, ensure that decision makers understand the value of our professional designation, promote positive change in the planning system and ensure that our members have access to the information and tools necessary to support their work.”
