The mission of the Ontario Public Health Association is to provide leadership on issues affecting the public's health and to strengthen the impact of people who are active in public and community health throughout Ontario.
Our mission is achieved by providing education opportunities and up-to-date information in community and public health, access to local, provincial and multi-disciplinary community health networks, mechanisms to seek and discuss issues and views of members, issue identification and advocacy with a province-wide perspective, and expertise and consultation in public and community health.
