To enable recreation and parks to thrive we must educate. Recreation Manitoba strives to support the ongoing development of recreation professionals by providing opportunity and environments for learning, fostering communication, collaboration and innovation alongside industry leaders. 

Recreation Manitoba is seeking information about arena operations and refrigeration plants in Manitoba. We currently have a survey to capture this information to aid in our advocacy campaign to support the sector and improve training opportunities. The survey data will be reported on at a regional level and all individual data will be kept anonymous.

We encourage you to complete the survey by March 29, 2024.  The link to the survey is here:

Working in the recreation and parks sector requires a unique and diverse set of knowledge, skills and attitudes. The CPRA Professional Development Certification Program (CPRA PDC) fosters continual growth of these competencies through accessible professional development that creates a national standard and network that will strengthen the credibility and quality of its practitioners.

CPRA PDC is a Canadian Parks and Recreation Association (CPRA) initiative and is currently delivered through the Alberta Recreation and Parks Association (ARPA). CPRA is the national voice of recreation and parks. Its vibrant network of members and partners exists to build healthy communities and enhance the quality of life and environments for all Canadians.

The CPRA Professional Development Certificate demonstrates your commitment to professional development. Certification takes up to two years to complete and is valid for three years.
