Professional Development


CARA has a robust professional development program that includes an annual conference, regional conferences, webinars, individual mentorship, professional certification, and more. CARA supports its members and the profession by providing a dynamic slate of learning opportunities led by experts from across Canada and internationally.



Resource Library 

All CARA members have access to a myriad of resources provided by their peers within our Resource Library. Most Special Interest Groups upload articles, templates, checklists and other resources related to their members’ scope of practice.  We also archive slides, posters and photos from the annual conferences, meeting minutes, newsletters, financial statements and other CARA information of interest to our membership.  


What groups have folders besides the SIGs?

The regional conference organizers, mentorship coordinator, various committees and CARA Executive also use the Resource Library for their work on behalf of CARA.
