About the Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association (CHPCA) 

The Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association is the national voice for quality hospice palliative care in Canada. We advance hospice palliative care across the country by providing education, raising awareness, influencing public policy, and collaborating with provincial hospice palliative care associations. 

Our Story 

CHPCA was formally established as a national charitable organization in November 1991, and we opened our first office in Ottawa in February 1994.  

Today, we are the national voice for hospice palliative care in Canada. Our goal is to make sure everyone in Canada has equitable access to quality palliative care for themselves and their family.  

We work closely with partners and other national organizations to promote education and training, support research, improve public awareness of hospice palliative care, and advocate for increased programs and services.
