CPRA PDC is Canada’s only professional development certification program for recreation and parks practitioners. Its approach to personalized development gives you, in any stage of your career, the skills you need to excel and forge new career opportunities.


Professional Development, for me, is any education or life long learning that we can undertake that will make us better not just at our current careers, but looking forward into the careers we plan to have in 5 to 10 years and being well prepared to enter into those careers and excel once we're in them.

This is an opportunity for us to provide a standardization of information and across the country where there is interaction via electronic opportunities so that people can engage in great dialog around what's facing our profession right now in terms of issues, trends or things that we need to be enhancing and improving.
