FP Canada is accepting nominations for two honours, the certification body said in a release on Thursday. The FP Canada Fellow distinction and the Donald J. Johnston Lifetime Achievement Award both recognize contributions to the financial planning profession and FP Canada.

To be eligible to be an FP Canada Fellow, a nominee must have demonstrated commitment to advancing FP Canada’s mandate through volunteer work, and have enhanced the public interest and reputation of FP Canada’s certifications by either developing FP Canada’s standards or inspiring others to develop or adopt them.

The Donald J. Johnston Lifetime Achievement Award recognizes those who have made lifetime contributions to FP Canada’s certifications and to financial planning. Donald J. Johnston led FP Canada during its first decade.

Prospective nominees must have been awarded FP Canada Fellow distinction and have made a “profound contribution” to both FP Canada and the financial planning profession, the release said.

The deadline for nominations for both honours is May 27.
