The 2017 National Conference embraces and celebrates what it means to illuminate.

For starters, our host city Kelowna is illuminated constantly thanks to 2000 hours of sunshine each year and breathtaking Northern Light displays.

Then, during each session, expert presenters will illuminate new concepts, enlightening delegates by providing deeper understanding of public relations.

Finally, as the crown jewel of the CPRS, Illuminate 2017 will serve to maintain our illustrious status as leaders in the Canadian public relations and communications industry.
