National Transferable Registration: NFLA

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

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

What they do:

NFLA’s main focus is on the development and stewardship of national standards for fitness leader registration across Canada, and as such they:

  • 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

Their role as a registrar:

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

Here are the Alliance Members to contact if you need to transfer your BCRPA registration to another province:

International Transferable Registration: ICREPs

The ICREPs (International Confederation of Registers for Exercise Professionals) is an international partnership between registration bodies around the world that register 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.

ICREPs' three main functions include:

  1. Facilitating international portability/recognition for exercise professionals worldwide
  2. Providing information and support to countries and regions that wish to develop registration systems for exercise professionals
  3. Facilitating sharing of best practice systems between ICREPs members

BCRPA's 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.

As a BCRPA Registered Fitness Leader, your registration allows you international portability across registration with ICREPs partners. For further information, please contact BCRPA by email
