As part of its objectives to promote the science, practice and education of psychology, CPA is involved in a number of advocacy and government relations activities on behalf of psychology as a discipline and its members. These activities include producing submissions to government, working closely with other stakeholder groups, as well as launching strategic communications and media campaigns. In addition, we have embarked on a series of meet and greets with federal members of Parliament to talk about issues that are relevant to the discipline and to share our unique perspective on current government activities such as committee work and bills under review.
The Canadian Psychological Association (CPA) is pleased to announce the release of a new edition of Psychology and Public Policy: A Government Relations Guide for Psychologists. This updated guide is designed to encourage psychologists toward greater political participation and provides the basic tools and guidance needed for bringing issues forward to government. This new version includes expanded appendices with the tools you will need to craft letters and meet with elected representatives.
