CVRP Professional Standards

Standards of Practice

(Under Revision 2019)


With the addition of the specialty certifications, the Canadian Certified Vocational Evaluator (CCVE), International Certified Vocational Evaluator (ICVE), Return to Work Disability Manager (RTWDM), and the Certified Forensic Life Care Planner (CFLCP), the College is re-writing the Code of Ethics and Standards Practice document to reflect rules of practice that are measurable. The Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice linked below can be reviewed historically for some guidance for ethical behavior but the new standards will be the basis for best practice professional behaviour and for the processing of any complaints against registrants.
