Canon Canada has launched Student Canon Professional Services (Student CPS), a program designed to support the next generation of imaging professionals.
With Student CPS, students in eligible post-secondary visual arts, applied arts and fine arts programs will be able to access member-only discounts on selected key products and services offered exclusively through Canon Pro Centres.
Student CPS is available to all full-time students enrolled in all such accredited post-secondary programs, including photography, journalism, film studies, broadcast, illustration, design, animation, and gaming.
Members will get student-specific pricing discounts on a selection of Canon’s professional products, discounted flat-rate overnight shipping for repairs, expedited service, discounts on repair parts and labour, and members-only promotions and contests.
Two-year memberships for the Student CPS program are available for $50.
