The Canadian Physiotherapy Association’s (CPA) governance establishes the mechanisms by which members have a say in policy and affairs, and hold leaders to account for the achievements of the association.

CPA members are entitled to be heard and to have access to sufficient information to make an informed decision about the value and success of their professional association. To achieve this, CPA members have established a constitution in the form of bylaws, rules and regulations. The Board of Directors supervises, controls and directs the affairs and business of the Association according to these documents.
