For as long as sales has existed in Canada, the Canadian Professional Sales Association (CPSA) has been there to support and advance sales professionals with tools, training and resources that accelerate their success.

As a by-industry, for-industry, not-for-profit professional association, CPSA is committed to the design and development of industry-validated, competency-based designations and accreditation programs to help solve labour market challenges faced by employers. The Sales Advisory Councils are comprised of senior sales leaders from across the country and representing a variety of industry segments and work to ensure that national frameworks represent the latest skill sets required for success in sales.

In August 2018, CPSA, working with Quebec partner HEC Montréal Sales Institute, formed the volunteer French Sales Advisory Council.
