"Earning your APR is a great achievement that demonstrates a high level of expertise within the communications industry," said Celia Sollows, APR, Presiding Officer of the CPRS National Council on Accreditation. "With one in five CPRS members currently accredited, our 19 new APRs join a robust, yet exclusive, group of practitioners committed to the highest standards of practice in Canadian public relations."

The APR designation is a voluntary certification recognized around the world for more than 50 years as the highest global standard of excellence in the industry. The program involves a rigorous evaluation of the skills needed to practice public relations and measures experience and strategic thinking. CPRS members must also demonstrate an understanding of the ethical practice of public relations and adhere to the CPRS Code of Professional Standards.

This year's APR cohort will be recognized in front of their peers on the first day of Illuminate 2017, the CPRS National Conference in Kelowna B.C, May 28-30, 2017.
