Canadian Public Health Association

The Canadian Public Health Association speaks on behalf of Canada's public health community on issues of critical importance to the health and well-being of Canadians and people around the world. Members give the Association unparalleled credibility, direction and authority, as well as expertise and human resources, both nationally and internationally. In return, the Association provides members with an opportunity to advocate for evidence-informed policy alternatives.

Members include public health professionals working in policy, practice and research as well as students/trainees and other individuals committed to supporting public health and health equity.

Membership is open to any individual who subscribes to our vision and mission and is engaged or interested in public health and health equity. There are no organizational memberships.

CPHA maintains a pool of mentors for its Mentorship Program. Mentors are established public health professionals with 10 or more years of work experience in the field. The expectation is that mentors will meet (virtually or in person for 45-60 minutes per meeting) with a mentee with similar interests on a monthly basis over the course of a six-month period. May we contact you to participate in this program?
Are you an early career professional, i.e. within the first 10 years of your public health career?
