In addition to the advocacy work that the CPA undertakes on your behalf, the Association strongly believes it is important to invest in, and equip, our members and affiliates with the knowledge, strategies and tools they need to be an effective advocate. For this reason, the CPA has created the Very Involved Psychologist (VIP) and Very Involved Psychological Researcher (VIPR) program. As part of that program, we have developed a toolkit to assist members in building their advocacy skill set and/or confirming their approach.
Non-Members can read more about the toolkit here – https://cpa.ca/advocacy/#Toolkit
Members can access the toolkit by signing into the CPA’s Members Only site here – https://secure.cpa.ca/apps/Pages/advocacy
