Canadian Healthcare Association
The Canadian Healthcare Association (CHA) is the federation of provincial and territorial hospital and health organizations across Canada. Through our members, CHA represents a broad continuum of care, including acute care, home and community care, long term care, public health, mental health, palliative care, addiction services, children, youth and family services, and housing services. These services are provided through regional health authorities, hospitals and other facilities and agencies that serve all Canadians and are governed by trustees who act in the public interest.
The Canadian Medical Association
The Canadian Medical Association is a national, voluntary association of physicians that advocates on behalf of its members and the public for access to high quality health care, and provides leadership and guidance to physicians.
Canadian Nurses Association
CNA is the national professional voice of registered nurses in Canada. A federation of 11 provincial and territorial nursing associations and colleges representing 143,843 registered nurses, CNA advances the practice and profession of nursing to improve health outcomes and strengthen Canada’s publicly funded, not-for-profit health system.
Ontario Hospital Association
Founded in 1924, the OHA uses advocacy, education and partnerships to build a strong, innovative and sustainable health care system for all Ontarians. Over the years, the OHA has influenced and helped shape health care policy in Ontario — from helping the government establish the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) in the 1950s to harnessing the efficiencies of group buying power by creating Ontario’s Hospital Purchasing Program in the 1970s. Representing approximately 151 public hospitals, the OHA assumes a leadership role, focused on patients, promoting an efficient and effective health system.
