Prospective PA Student Information

The Canadian Association of Physician Assistants is a professional association that advocates for the introduction and expansion of the Physician Assistant profession in Canada. CAPA is the national voice of physician assistants in Canada. We support quality standards and competencies and help establish the profession within the national health care framework. Learn more: CAPA is not a regulatory college, a disciplinary board or an assessment organization.

 The certifying body for PAs in Canada is the Physician Assistant Certification Council of Canada (PACCC).
