The Canadian Parking Foundation History

In 1996 the Canadian Parking Association (CPA) established a charitable foundation to advance education and research in the public parking industry. The Canadian Parking Foundation (CPF) works with the CPA and Universities Canada to award annual scholarships which are funded by the CPA.   These scholarships are available to members of the Canadian Parking Association.

At the CPA’s Annual Conference and Trade Show, a selection committee of the CPF presents two awards to industry members who contribute notably to the advancement of the CPA and the industry in general. The Ed Keate Award and Ted Seeberg Award are named for two individuals who demonstrated such commitment to the parking industry.
