Knowledge Translation


AVISO logo_500x144

The CHPCA’s first newsletter “AVISO” was published in both official languages in June, 1992. In Spanish, “AVISO” means “advice” or “intelligence”. In Latin “AVIS” means “bird”. Both meanings relate nicely to the official logo of the association.

AVISO is published semi-annually – May and October – and is distributed to the CHPCA’s 5000+ members.
