Welcome to CPRS Regina

CPRS Regina and all Saskatchewan CPRS Members!

We continue to monitor the situation as it continues and are aware of the many changes COVID-19 has brought to our profession, the society and how we live day to day. The board is working on ways we can provide our members with local supports and PD opportunities relevant to our changed world. Please reach out to us at any time, we always to hear from you but more importantly, we want members to know we are here for them.

We encourage all CPRS members to visit CPRS Connect to access the COVID 19 Resource Centre and Member Discussion Forum. As well, the Bill Rees Learning Centre is available for more learning opportunities.
