The Newfoundland and Labrador Powerlifting Association is the provincial powerlifting body of the Canadian Powerlifting Union for Newfoundland and Labrador.

Click here to register as a member of the NLPA and Canadian Powerlifting Union (CPU) via eSportsDesk. Athletes hoping to compete at the local, regional, national or international level will require a current membership for both NLPA and CPU. Your membership with the NLPA is joint with the CPU in one registration process.

All memberships will show 2 parts, the portion that goes to the CPU ($50) and the portion that goes to your provincial organization, such as the NLPA. They are good for one year from date of purchase.

$5.00 of the CPU portion goes to support the CPU’s Anti-Doping program.


In order to join the CPU you must be a Canadian citizen or have Permanent Resident status, or be in Canada on a work or study visa.

Persons on work or study visas may participate in any contest, but cannot set national records or be on international teams. Other foreign nationals in Canada temporarily may participate in CPU events, but must have a valid membership from their own nation. At contests designated as “Championships” (Provincial or National) foreign nationals may only participate as guests, and cannot win medals or class standings.
