The Canadian Parks and Recreation Association (CPRA) is a national organization dedicated to realizing the full potential of parks and recreation as a major contributor to individual and community health and vibrancy. Membership includes the 13 provincial and territorial parks and recreation associations and their extensive networks of service providers in over 90% of Canadian communities.
CPRA collaborates with a host of other national organizations operating in the recreation, physical activity, environmental, facilities, sport, public health, crime prevention and social services arenas.
Over the course of its 60-year history, CPRA has become a strong and credible national leader in our sector. We provide our members with the information, resources and the professional development they can use to make a difference in their own communities. Through broad-based community involvement, we find solutions to social challenges, impact policy direction and generate momentum towards community quality of life.
