BCPIA holds a number of seminars on management topics relevant to the printing industry industry throughout the year - generally three to four per year in the Lower Mainland plus some additional programs when possible in the Interior. In addition, our new Member Only section when completed will include a number of educational resources that can be downloaded for use as a resource.

Through its relationship with such organizations as the Canadian Manufacturing and Exporting and other Printing Industry of American regional associations in Canada and our US affiliates, our members can also take part in other valuable programs and services.

BCPIA events are usually open to both Members and Non-members at non-member pricing. We encourage you to check this space often to see what programs are available.
