Exciting new projects coming at HPBA Canada

This year has been a busy one at HPBA Canada and 2016 is shaping up as an exciting step forward for HPBAC as we take on new challenges. We are working on plans for a Canadian Government Affairs Academy and e-books for consumers promoting industry products, maintenance and safety. Watch for updates on these exciting projects in January.

In other news, we’ve brought back Mystery Shopping. It should be available for Quebec members later in 2016 as well.

Watch for regional meetings with education sessions across Canada in the coming year. Check our Events Calendar on this site for dates.
