Why Belong – Benefits of Membership/Affiliation

The Canadian Psychiatric Association offers our members a uniquely Canadian voice that speaks on behalf of Canada’s 4,700 psychiatrists and 900 residents on issues that affect the future of mental health in Canada and psychiatry’s role within it.

By joining the CPA you are supporting:

  • the development of important position papers, statements and clinical practice guidelines that advance the practice of psychiatry of psychiatry and inform mental health policy;
  • the sharing of economic data and negotiation strategies across the province to ensure that psychiatrists are fairly compensated; and
  • a platform where members can provide our nation’s leaders with advice on topics that affect psychiatrists and their patients.
