About the CPA
Connecting Parking and Mobility Professionals in Canada
“We bring together professionals from across a broad spectrum of the parking and mobility industries to network, provide training, develop and adapt new technologies and enhance customer experiences for the betterment of our communities and industry.” - CPA Board of Directors
Members find value from the many aspects of programming, events and other benefits offered through the Canadian Parking Association. Here is what they are saying…
The need for public parking continues to diversify. With these developments comes new challenges and issues for the parking industry. Membership in the Canadian Parking Association gives you current information on Canadian issues such as: advancement in technology, insurance regulations, revenue control, facility maintenance, transportation demand management (TDM), planning, taxes, parking rates, and more.
Membership in the Canadian Parking Association can help parking professionals be better equipped and prepared to deal with current issues. Through networking with other professionals in the industry, having access to training specific to the parking industry, and participation in image enhancing programs, your membership will ensure that you are up to date with the ever-changing parking industry.
Benefits of membership include, but are not limited to professional development, networking opportunities, and resource materials. The association is carefully structured to include both the private and public sectors with members from municipalities, hospitals, universities, airports, public parking companies, suppliers, and consultants. The CPA’s pledge is to keep its members abreast of the changes and advancements in the parking industry.
The Parker, a bilingual quarterly magazine, provides insight into the industry’s activities. Featured articles written by the experts cover every subject related to parking. Get to know other parking professionals through the industry news items, professional achievements and new appointments, and follow the activities of the Board of Directors and the local chapters in each issue.
Suppliers of equipment and services can reach their target market through the many advertising opportunities offered by the association. A Conference and Trade Show is held annually in a major Canadian city. The show has come to be known as the largest and most important parking event in Canada.
District Chapters offer regional meetings to discuss topical issues throughout the year. Local participants come from all sectors to share experiences, insights and to discuss local issues. CPA membership is encouraged but not required to attend a local chapter meeting.
One of the greatest benefits of industry associations is meeting other people in your profession. The CPA offers excellent opportunities to network with the people who can relate to your issues and provide insight into their own operations, where possible solutions are developed or shared.
The Canadian Parking Association supports the following parking-related events and encourages members and non-members to participate in as many events as possible to keep ahead of changes to the parking industry.
