The PPPC Scholarship initiative was launched in 2007, with the goal of helping students receive the financial support they need to thrive in their education, while creating awareness for our incredible industry and showcasing new talent.
Since its inception we are proud to say that 103 students have received a total of $154,500 in PPPC Scholarships, thanks to the support of many generous PPPC members. In 2018, a minimum of 8 Scholarships of $1,500 will be awarded to deserving students across Canada. All students currently enrolled in a business, marketing or related program at an accredited Canadian University or College are eligible to apply for a PPPC Scholarship.
In 1956, a group of people actively engaged in the promotional products business got together and legally formed a not-for-profit, federally chartered organization in Montreal called Specialty Advertising Counselors of Canada (SACC). The name was later changed to Specialty Advertising Association of Canada (SAAC) in 1982, updated to The Promotional Products Association of Canada (PPACanada) in 1992. On November 1st, 2007, the current name of Promotional Product Professionals of Canada Inc. (PPPC) was adopted.
The PPPC head office is located in Winnipeg, Manitoba today, staffed by eight employees, each a professional in their field, to serve its over 1,300 members in both official languages. Reflecting the structure of the industry, PPPC has two main types of membership: Suppliers and Distributors.
