That’s where the ECHO Pediatric Palliative Care model continues to inspire Stephanie with its promise and impact. Read and watch more now at https://loom.ly/MZWVPl8

Our Story - Notre Histoire

The CHPCA is the national voice for Hospice Palliative Care in Canada. Advancing and advocating for quality end-of-life/hospice palliative care in Canada, its work includes public policy, public education and awareness. Established in 1991, its volunteer Board of Directors is composed of hospice palliative care workers and volunteers from Canadian provinces and territories as well as members-at-large.

The Canadian Palliative Care Association (CPCA) was formally established as a national charitable organization in November 1991 and opened the first office in Ottawa in February 1994. The association’s first newsletter “AVISO” was published in both official languages in June, 1992.

Today, the Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association is the national voice for hospice palliative care in Canada. It is a national charitable non-profit association whose mission is to provide leadership in hospice palliative care in Canada. We strive to achieve this mission by supporting research, promoting education and training, improving public awareness of hospice palliative care, and by advocating for increased programs and services. CHPCA works in close partnership with other national organizations and will continue to move forward with the goal of ensuring that all Canadians, regardless of where they may live, have equal access to quality hospice palliative care for themselves and their family.
