To stimulate the building of relationships and the development of strategic alliances among companies and institutions engaged in the provision of healthcare products to Canadians.
The CHLA is led by an Executive Committee whose members are drawn from the broadest possible range of CHLA constituents. Members are appointed annually by the outgoing Committee, from which a minimum of three members are re-appointed to ensure continuity.
The CHLA meets at least three times a year to hear guest speakers give presentations on topics of interest. Emphasis falls on providing opportunities for sharpening practical skills and on facilitating networking with other BD professionals. As well as publishing a newsletter and Resource Manual, the CHLA maintains this website with its extensive, Member’s Only database of information about member companies.
The CHLA has developed relationships with similar organizations in the United States, Europe and Asia, providing our members opportunities for participation in meetings internationally.
