The CHCA represents a wide range of stakeholders involved in home and community care. Members include federal, provincial and territorial governments, health authorities, service providers, equipment and technology companies, and others non-government organizations. As a national membership association, the CHCA funds and manages projects that address pan-Canadian priorities. A recognized and respected facilitator, we make connections and stimulate knowledge sharing.

Together, with our membership the CHCA works to strengthen integrated home and community-based care. Uniquely positioned to address the need of the home and community care sector across the country, the CHCA works with our members to identify and share innovative practices, provide opportunities to develop new skills, inform and engage in provincial / territorial and federal health care policy and link like-minded people through our networking events.
