Mini-Conference + Training

Nestled beneath Grouse Mountain, home of the 2010 Winter Olympics, and steps from the world-renowned Capilano Suspension Bridge Park, we invite you to the first ever Canadian CPS Tech Update in North Vancouver, BC, on Feb. 23, 2018.

There’s more! American manufacturers and their customer service reps provide valuable advice to consumers and the CPS community by maintaining SafeKids certification. Canadian CPSTs would love to have you further engage with us and the unique needs of Canadian consumers.
