Canadian Public Health Association

Become a Member

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.

Quebec

Since the Association pour la santé publique du Québec implemented new software to manage its membership, we are no longer able to offer conjoint membership in the Province of Quebec. You can still join both associations separately and the Canadian Public Health Association provides a reduced fee to encourage joint membership. At renewal time, you will need to renew with each association separately.
