Associates and Affiliates are individuals or groups that have joined the CHPCA in conjunction with their province’s association to become joint provincial members and CHPCA Associates or Affiliates.
Associates (individuals) and Affiliates (groups) are given access to exclusive content produced by the CHPCA and provincial associations including campaigns materials, questionnaires, Aviso, conference discounts, and other relevant information and benefits. They are also often consulted when seeking guidance about issues pertaining to hospice palliative care on a provincial or national level. CHPCA Associates and Affiliates have a fundamental role in directing the activities of the Association.
For residents of Canada, classifications and fee structure for the CHPCA are dependent upon your province or territory of residence. Becoming an Associate or an Affiliate with the CHPCA automatically includes membership with your corresponding Provincial Association, except where noted. Associate and Affiliate status is also open to persons or groups living outside of Canada.
