HealthCareCAN – the national voice of healthcare organizations and hospitals across Canada – was formed from the merger of the Canadian Healthcare Association and the Association of Canadian Academic Healthcare Organizations in January 2014. We foster informed and continuous, results oriented discovery and innovation across the continuum of healthcare. We act with others to enhance the health of the people of Canada; to build the capability for high quality care; and to help ensure value for money in publicly financed, healthcare programs.
Our Vision: Improved health for the people of Canada through an evidence-based and innovative healthcare system.
Our Mission: To advance an integrated, innovative, sustainable and accountable healthcare system that provides the people of Canada with a world-leading health system by:
- Being the collective voice of Canada’s healthcare organizations;
- Enhancing pathways to innovation;
- Supporting service excellence across the continuum of care; and,
- Developing the health leaders of today and tomorrow.
