CAIRP members have earned the Chartered Insolvency and Restructuring Professional (CIRP) designation and most are Licensed Insolvency Trustees (LIT) providing insolvency and restructuring services to consumers and businesses who experience financial challenges. CAIRP advances the interests of its members and the public by: • promoting excellence among members, • providing relevant professional development, • establishing and enforcing CAIRP’s Rules of Professional Conduct and Standards of Professional Practice, • maintaining rigorous certification standards and providing innovative education to aspiring insolvency and restructuring professionals, and • advocating for a fair, transparent and effective insolvency and restructuring system throughout Canada. Members of CAIRP must complete the Chartered Insolvency and Restructuring Professional Qualification Program, referred to as CQP. Completion of the CQP is generally a prerequisite to receiving an invitation from the Superintendent of Bankruptcy to take the Oral Board of Examination to obtain their licence as a Licensed Insolvency Trustee.
