The College of Vocational Rehabilitation Professionals is LAUNCHING a new Website SOON! CVRP will have a FRESH NEW FACE! We designed this for you, the Registrants and Stakeholders! The new website design will be easy to navigate, with employment/RFPs/professional development resources, an expanded Public Registry, enhanced Registrant communications and profiles. STAY TUNED! CVRP will update Registrants and Stakeholders on the upcoming new website LIVE DATE in early 2022.

We are excited to announce the reopening of the Grandfathering for the Return to Work Disability Manager (RTWDM) credential. Grandfathering is open until June 30, 2022.


The CVE was founded and originated by the Commission on Certification of Work Adjustment and Vocational Evaluation Specialists (CCWAVES) in 1981 under what is now called the CRCC. In 1981, the CVE credential stood for “Certified in Vocational Evaluation”, it evolved into “Certified Vocational Evaluator” as it was increasingly used by professionals. The original CVE existed from 1981 until 2008 when it was suspended. The “new” CVE was created by CCRC (Commission on Rehabilitation Counselor Certification) and was launched in December 2020.

The International Certified Vocational Evaluator credential is available. The College of Vocational Rehabilitation Professionals (CVRP) is pleased to announce the ICVE online examination and ICVE Exam Study Guide is available. Click here for the ICVE Study Guide. Eligibility criteria are based on experience and/or formal education, passing of the examination, and review of two written reports. For those who are interested in sitting for the exam, please forward a CV (Curriculum Vitae) to for verification of eligibility.

The Government of Canada has provided guidance on the prioritization of COVID-19 vaccine eligibility here:
Guidance on prioritization of initial doses of COVID-19 Vaccine(s)
Availability of vaccination dates will vary depending on which province you practice in and the College has no control over this availability. You are encouraged to follow-up with your local Public Health Unit which will provide updated information as it becomes available. For example, the Ontario government has set out their latest COVID-19 Guidance for Prioritizing Health Care Workers for COVID-19 Vaccination on February 9, 2021. This guidance discusses the prioritization of health professionals as defined by the Ministry of Health.
In Ontario, you can find your local Public Health Unit here: Ontario Public Health Unit Locator.

Your professional College, in light of recent medical and government reports and directives concerning COVID-19, suggests that you use your professional judgement and that of your employer to determine if face to face client contact is necessary at this time. This is for the equal protection of your client (public) and yourself in the delivery of professional services. Please read the available literature which is easily accessed through the many provincial, federal government and health authority websites, so you are familiar with COVID-19 and the ways and means to protect yourself and others. The College recognizes that online and/or teleconference methods of communication with your clients/claimants are available and we encourage you to consider using such methods if appropriate. Please follow your professional and employer’s protocols surrounding this pandemic. We wish you and your clients good health during this challenging situation.
