The CPA is committed to developing an action plan that supports sustainable change; policies, resources, and wise practices will be created and identified for the association to support diversity, equity, inclusion, and anti-racism (DEIA) in the work that we do as your national member Association.
How will we achieve this?
- The CPA has engaged the Canadian Center for Diversity and Inclusion (CCDI) to navigate this work.
- A CPA advisory group will be struck in the early spring of 2021. The group will be populated with individuals who represent diverse lived experience and/or knowledge of physiotherapy and health care, and will inform and advise on the actions and products of the CPA.
- The project will support the creation and diffusion of resources to enhance the CPA membership’s ability to respond to DEIA imperatives in physiotherapy organizations and all practice settings.
This is the first step of many more to come and we remain invested in listening, learning, and understanding the change that needs to occur within the profession and to best support the diverse Canadian population that the CPA’s members serve.
