VRA Canada Professional Designations

VRA Canada members are eligible to apply for several professional designations. Each designation requires the applicant to supply relevant education, work experience, and references.

Completed Application Forms, along with supporting documentation, should be scanned and emailed to the new VRA Canada Office.  Submitting via mail or courier will delay review of the application.
