The Canadian Parks and Recreation Association (CPRA) is proud to offer a bursary program to assist parks and recreation professionals financially in the pursuit of professional development in the sector.
The Harry Boothman Bursary was established to honour the contributions of Harry Boothman to the parks and recreation sector. Harry was a Parks Supervisor for the City of Calgary, CPRA Board Member and long-time supporter of the organization. Harry believed in the need for actions that support the continued development of the field. Establishing this bursary, in support of Professional Development within the sector, is a tribute to Harry’s vision and dedication.
Applications will be accepted from Parks and Recreation practitioners with a minimum of five (5) years’ experience and currently working full-time in the sector.
