Founded in 1959, CPRS Vancouver is a networking and professional development organization serving public relations and communications practitioners in British Columbia with a specific focus on Metro Vancouver. Our membership is diverse and ranges from senior practitioners and public relations executives to students and newcomers to the profession.
CPRS Vancouver offers regular professional development and social events for our members to network and discuss issues surrounding public relations, media relations, social media, event management, marketing, public engagement and public affairs.
We promote high professional standards and encourage our members to earn APR accreditation. We support student professional development and work closely with local PR programs at colleges and universities throughout Metro Vancouver to support entry into the profession. The society also runs a robust job board through which our membership is able to learn about new career opportunities and access a variety of job postings.
Our chapter society is a member of the national Canadian Public Relations Society (CPRS). Read the latest Annual Report to Members (2015-2016) to learn more about our ongoing efforts to service the CPRS Vancouver membership. For further reading, here is CPRS's history.
