Canadian Pharmacists Association

The Canadian Pharmacists Association, previously known as the Canadian Pharmaceutical Association, was founded in 1907 in Toronto, Ontario. CPhA is the national voice of Pharmacists in Canada, representing pharmacists practising in various fields of pharmacy in community, hospital, academia, government and corporate settings, plus pharmacy students. Its mission is advancing the health and well-being of Canadians through excellence in pharmacist care. In 2014 CPhA adopted a new governance and membership model, most provincial pharmacy advocacy associations (PPAs) and select national pharmacist associations (NPAs) have become Organizational Members of CPhA. Their individual pharmacist and pharmacy student members are now CPhA Associates. The CPhA Board of Directors is made up of representatives appointed by each Organizational Member. The Board of Directors is responsible for setting the broad direction of the association.

  2. Tania says:

    Hi! Dear Mostafa, we all like to learn English, but we have to help ourselves listening every ESL POD lesson and writing to ESL POD blog.
    We like to have new blog friends. Welcome!

  3. Betty says:

    Thank you very much Tania, I like the way you encourage everyone including me to help ourselves to learn English.

    It is true, “we all like to learn English, but we have to help ourselves by listening to every ESL POD lesson and writing to ESL POD blog”.

    And it is true that “We like to have new blog friends”. Welcome Everyone!

    P.S. English is a ‘proper noun’ and we should begin the word with a Capital letter. Thus, “I like to learn English”.
