CANADIAN PROFESSIONAL RODEO ASSOCIATION
CPRA The Canadian Professional Rodeo Association (CPRA), with its headquarters in Airdrie, Alta., is the sanctioning body for professional rodeo in Canada.
The CPRA sanctioned 62 rodeos in Canada last year with a combined total payout of over $5.1 million.
The CPRA is committed to maintaining the highest standards that ensure every CPRA-sanctioned event is managed with fairness and competence, and the livestock used is healthy and cared-for to the highest standards.
The CPRA has a strong working relationship with the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) in the United States, and many Canadian rodeos are co-approved for world championship points. World Champions are declared using combined CPRA and PRCA points.
Although the contestants are the most visible, the association’s membership also consists of rodeo committees, stock contractors, judges, rodeo secretaries, announcers, timers, bullfighters, associate members, photographers, specialty-act performers and more.
Approximately 1,400 members are represented by the CPRA’s board of directors, who govern the sport of professional rodeo in Canada.
CPRA rodeos create a positive economic impact on the cities and towns that host them. For example, the Canadian Finals Rodeo generates an economic impact of more than $50 million annually into the local community.
As well, professional rodeos in North America raise in excess of $30 million for local and international charities each year.
The 36th annual Canadian Finals Rodeo attracted almost 90,000 fans to Rexall Place in Edmonton, Alta. last November, a testament to the sport’s ongoing popularity and growth.
