Welcome to the Bench

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

The Bench includes discussion groups, a resource library and events page. You can join discussion groups on topics including reopening, parks and open spaces and inclusion and accessibility, among others. Members can post and subscribe to discussions to receive updates when new information is posted.

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 strengthen the sector

The Bench is your resource where you can network, learn and find out what’s new in parks and recreation across Canada. We encourage you to join discussion groups and upload resources to share with colleagues. 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.
