Young Professionals in Valuation

The Young Professionals in Valuation Program is a formal program designed to bring together the next generation of valuation professionals from across Canada, to encourage member engagement, to provide networking opportunities, to assist in professional development, and to foster a sense of community through networking. Driven by dedicated volunteers and led by the Organizing Committee, the Program is run by the profession, for the profession. The Program is for Members and Students, age 40 and under, though all are welcome to attend events.

The Program will host a series of events annually across the country, which include networking with other valuation peers as well as other like-minded professionals. Click below for details on our upcoming events!
