About CIH

CIH sets the professional standard for housing providers around the world. CIH Canada is part of an international network with over 22,000 members in more than 20 countries, and offers accreditation programs in the UK, Ireland, Hong Kong, and now in Canada. Through a partnership with APHAA, nonprofit housing providers in Alberta can now pursue CIH Canada accreditation. CIH Canada offers its members multiple pathways to accreditation through education.

Choosing The Housing Designation Right For You

CIH Canada is offering two levels of designation for housing professionals in Alberta. If you’re new to the sector or aspire to work in housing management, the Certified Housing Professional Program is for you. The program focuses on operations; course topics include the Housing System, Managing Buildings, Housing Management and Managing People and Organizations.

If you work in a management role, or if you’ve graduated from the Certified Housing Professional program, consider CIH Canada’s Chartered Housing Professional Program. It focuses on strategic issues, preparing professionals for leadership roles. Courses include Housing Policy, Asset Management, Housing and Society, and Managing People and Organizational Strategy. CIH Canada, in partnership with APHAA, delivers both programs through an online learning platform called Moodle.
