The Canadian Physiotherapy Association’s (CPA) governance establishes the mechanisms by which members have a say in policy and affairs, and hold leaders to account for the achievements of the association.
CPA members are entitled to be heard and to have access to sufficient information to make an informed decision about the value and success of their professional association. To achieve this, CPA members have established a constitution in the form of bylaws, rules and regulations.
Bylaws, rules and regulations
CPA members are responsible for the bylaws. Only members can ratify bylaw changes.
The CPA Board of Directors is responsible for rules and regulations. Members are entitled to know about modifications in a timely manner, and can question the Board on the appropriateness of any changes at the Annual General Meeting (AGM).
