About Symposium

Symposium is the only conference of its kind for recreation and parks professionals in the province. BCRPA's flagship event is traditionally attended by upwards of 300+ recreation and parks professionals, planners, volunteers, sector partners and elected officials who are interested in exploring best practices, innovations, and trends in the sector.  

Our Delegates return year after year, whether live or virtual, because Symposium delivers the highest quality programming. The event features speakers and sessions focused on the top issues of the day affecting the world of community recreation and parks. It also features the largest Marketplace Expo of products and services in the sector, provides multiple opportunities to strengthen personal networks and connections, and lots of time to have fun.

Thank you to our 2023 Sponsors!
