Update on the Apra Canada Conference
Because new research suggests that timelines for flattening the curve will extend into the fall, we have made the decision to postpone the in-person conference to April 2021. This will give the board and conference committee further time to monitor the situation and make the best decision for the health and wellness of Apra Canada members.
While we will are postponing the in-person conference, the Apra Canada board remains committed to providing you with high-quality professional development education and opportunities. In addition to the member benefits that you know and appreciate such as the membership directory, mentorship program, and ongoing educational sessions, we look forward to sharing a wide variety of topics and speakers in a number of different virtual formats featuring conference presenters, all free for Apra Canada members.
We will continue to provide updates as the situation develops, and hope that you and your loved ones remain safe and well. Information about the conference dates and fees are below.

About the Radikha Jaggernauth Conference Scholarships
In August 2012, the Canadian prospect research community lost a valued member. Radikha Jaggernauth passed away after being diagnosed with cancer. Radhika was an Apra Canada Director responsible for the Regional Representatives portfolio. Over the years, she gave a great deal of time as a volunteer with Apra. As a prospect researcher, Radhika contributed directly to the success of a number of organisations, including the Heart and Stroke Foundation, UNICEF and the United Way of Greater Toronto. She is remembered as a kind-hearted, funny, inquisitive, and focused individual who was committed to Apra Canada and the research profession. The 2011-2012 Apra Canada Board of Directors renamed the Apra Canada Scholarships in Radikha's memory.
Prospect Research in Canada: An Essential Guide for Researchers and Fundraisers
Intended for fundraisers and researchers just starting out with prospect research, this book is an invaluable resource for those needing to establish training and guidelines for their organization or educational programs. It also offers a wealth of information for those from the private sector who realize the unique skill sets required to successfully conduct research in Canada.
In this book, 30 skilled contributors share their front-line experiences in the field of prospect research. Through their words and knowledge they reveal why Canadian researchers are not only specialists in their field, but also passionate about ethics and standards and continually improving a profession that they love.
Edited by Tracey Church and Liz Rejman, this book was made possible due to the generous sponsorship support of Apra Canada (Association of Professional Researchers for Advancement, Canada).
