Welcome to the Bench

The new Canadian Parks and Recreation Association’s online community is here—a place for the sector to meet, work and grow together.

The Bench will initially provide support to the sector as it faces new challenges presented by COVID-19. Inside, you will find discussion forums and a resource library with templates, tools, guidelines and other documents that we hope will make your work easier.

Sign up if you don’t have an account. It’s free and open to all parks and recreation professionals and practitioners.

Let’s work together to build the sector

Throughout the year, the Bench will evolve to include many other features, including professional development opportunities, an events calendar, a Framework hub, links to the academic community, a career corner, communities of practice and a resource library on a range of topics.

We encourage you to upload documents and participate in the discussion. If you need help with the system, please contact info@cpra.ca.

CPRA acknowledges the financial support for the Bench from the Canadian Training Network for Parks and Recreation.
