CEO, Canadian Parks and Recreation Association

Canada's recovery from the impact of COVID-19

As the parks and leisure sector works to find its path to recovery from the impacts of COVID-19, there are lessons to be learned from around the globe. Canada and Australia have traditionally shared a common approach to parks and leisure and this remains true for sector recovery from the pandemic.

As the CEO of CPRA, CJ Noble is playing an instrumental role in leading the sector on its road to recovery. CJ will share the Canadian experience on COVID-19 recovery, including: how the parks and leisure sector is finding opportunities for growth; the role that governments are playing in the sector recovery; and a review of the lessons learned as well as the challenges that remain ahead.

Canadian parks and leisure professionals and practitioners are being challenged to re-imagine recreation on every front and finding opportunity in the face of adversity. Through the eyes of the Canadian experience, conference participants will find reassurance in a common approach and inspiration in ideas from across the globe.

CJ Noble has been the Executive Director of the Canadian Parks and Recreation Association since 2011. During her time at CPRA, CJ has provided key leadership as the Association has renewed its influence, profile and contribution to the parks and recreation sector. CJ played an essential role in the development and now the implementation of the Framework for Recreation in Canada. Prior to this role, CJ was a Vice-President at an international consulting firm where she delivered integrated public affairs solutions. Previously, CJ worked as a political aide to federal cabinet ministers.
