OPHA 2017/2018 Membership

April 1, 2017 - March 31, 2018

Thank you for your interest in joining the OPHA! Our Board and staff are committed to providing a valuable experience for both new and long-standing members. Whether you are just entering the field or you have been active in Public Health for years, membership in the OPHA lets others know where you stand - committed to enhancing public health in Ontario!

OPHA is more than a service provider to public and community health professionals - we represent their collective voice. We believe that we can accomplish more together than we can alone, and that a strong, engaged membership base increases our ability to find new, creative, and collaborative ways to address prevailing needs and make a greater impact in the public health environment. The expertise of our workgroups, board committees, constituent societies and members, gives us a solid foundation to achieve the goals of our new plan. For example, drawing on the expertise and efforts  of our workgroups, OPHA made its voice heard to government on a wide range of issues, including healthy child development; poverty reduction; obesity prevention; control of alcohol sales; reproductive health; the built environment and many more. In keeping with the strategic plan, we will keep members better informed of new developments, strengthen our ability to influence public policy, solidify and expand our partnerships and professional development offerings.

Therefore, we encourage you not just to become an OPHA member, but to become an active member to realize the true benefits of belonging to our organization! If you have any questions or encounter any difficulties, please email membership@opha.on.ca or call us at 416.367.3313.  We look forward to working with you to advance OPHA’s vision of being a dynamic and innovative force, enhancing and reshaping public health!
