RPIC Real Property Scholarship Program
The Real Property Institute of Canada (RPIC) is a non-profit organization dedicated to the professional development of the federal real property (RP) community. The Institute’s mission is to promote professionalism and effectiveness of the disciplines of real property management within the federal public sector.
