The BCRPA is a member of the National Fitness Leadership Alliance (NFLA), a nationwide group of Provincial/Territorial government-affiliated fitness agencies.

The National Fitness Leadership Alliance of Canada is a partnership of not-for-profit organizations dedicated to the advancement of exercise accreditation and leadership. NFLA Canada is dedicated to the promotion of active living for all Canadians. We do this by providing a variety of community-based services, education, accreditation and an unbiased transparent and standardized registration program to exercise professionals.
 

What We Do

NFLA’s main focus is on the development and stewardship of national standards for fitness leader registration across Canada, and as such we:
  • work collaboratively to develop and distribute resources for exercise professionals in Canada;
  • are a national and international advocate for exercise professionals;
  • identify and address issues of common concern.

Our role as a register

The NFLA is recognized by the International Confederation of Registers for Exercise Professionals

ICREPs members operate in 4 continents, over seven countries, and collectively register over 60,000 individual exercise professionals. ICREPs has also produced a global matrix that maps each ICREPs member’s registration levels against the others, which provides a clear pathway for exercise professionals considering moving countries.

Our connection to ICREPs furthers our goals by providing international portability and recognition for Canadian exercise professionals and by allowing us to share best practices and information with international partners.
