History

The Canadian Public Relations Society (CPRS) is a representative organization of people in public relations in Canada. In 1987, the CPRS consisted of eleven affiliated chapters across Canada with a total membership of over 1,500 people. In 2007, it had grown to include sixteen member societies. Its objectives are to become the focal point for professional development, a forum for the discussion of mutual interests and problems, and a medium to deal with concerns, quality, and direction of public relations activity in Canada. The CPRS is governed by a national body in which each member society has representation. The national body co-ordinates society activities. The Manitoba Chapter offers a series of programmes, workshops, and conferences geared to inform members of trends, ideas, and processes that are likely to be of importance to the public relations function.
