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?

PHPC Collaborator Session

Improving Public Health capacity in Canada

Tuesday, April 30, 2019

Across the country, health system reforms, budget constraints and changes in system priorities have been impacting public health to varying degrees over the past 10 years. As a follow-up to last year’s session, which asked the question of  how to best collect data to measure the success of public health systems, the Urban Public Health Network (UPHN) has been working with health system researchers to better understand and quantify these impacts on public health capacity,y including changes in governance, structure, programs and staffing/funding levels. Preliminary results from a survey of UPHN member cities across Canada will be shared alongside perspectives from rural and remote jurisdictions and across Canada more broadly. Through large- and small-group discussion we will explore actions that can be taken to advocate for a strengthening of public health capacity for the future.

Rural, Remote & Northern Public Health Network Reception
