About CPRS Ottawa–Gatineau

Connecting the PR community

Founded in 1948, the Canadian Public Relations Society (CPRS) is the leading professional association for communicators across the country. Our chapter formed in Ottawa in 1956, and was renamed CPRS Ottawa-Gatineau in 2004 to represent our membership on both sides of the river. Here in the nation’s capital, we are a dynamic, growing organization, connecting our members with the people, expertise and resources they need to expand their network and sharpen their professional edge.


Build your career, learn new skills and expand your network. Let us help you take your career to the next level. Join us to access volunteer opportunities and accreditation.


Attend an event: network with other public relations professionals and learn about new trends and specialized skills that can enhance your career or advance your job search.


Whether you’re a communications student, between jobs, or new to town, volunteering with CPRS is a great way to boost your résumé or expand your scope of practice.
