PHPC CPD Symposium Day 2


In Canada, health is constitutionally a provincial responsibility. Many of us have had positive, negative, or very little interaction at all with any federal health-related body. When PHAC was created post-SARS there were uncertainties and expectations – have these been met? can we work better together? While many issues in public health are intensely local, many others are shared,and might benefit from economies of scale, expertise, authority, credibility and funding of a national body.  This blue-sky session is meant to be a frank discussion about the federal role in public health – what it is, what it could be, what it should be.

 Networking Breakfast
 Federal Role in Public Health:
 Brief History of the Public Health Agency of Canada
 Presentation by Public Health Agency of Canada Physicians
 Abstract Presentation: Possibilities & Pitfalls: is there a   federal role in public health?
