Welcome to the Canadian Outdoor Professionals Association

Stemming from a collective need for better employment standards, sustainable wages, and a unified voice, we created CANOPA
a Nonprofit, community-driven association for outdoor professionals

About Us

As Current and former Outdoor Professionals, we are dedicated to making the industry more equitable, sustainable, and inclusive of diversity for the next generation

The Survey

To help inform our next steps we have a survey on the go. We are collecting data in four categories: wages & costs incurred by outdoor professionals; education gaps within the field, and suggestions for what we can collectively do to improve the industry.


Employment Standards –
Part of what we are doing at CANOPA is educating workers on their rights. We want to inform you so that you are better prepared when looking at contracts and considering job offers.


Hear from folx who have succeeded in the field and Employers who are amazing to work for
