The Canadian Paediatric Society (CPS) is a national association of paediatricians, committed to working together to advance the health of children and youth by nurturing excellence in health care, advocacy, education, research and support of its membership.

As a voluntary professional association, the CPS represents more than 3000 paediatricians, paediatric subspecialists, paediatric residents, and other people who work with and care for children. The CPS is governed by an elected Board of Directors representing each province and territory.

To fulfill its mission, the CPS is active in several major areas:

Professional education: The CPS supports the continuing professional development needs of paediatricians and others involved in providing health care to children and youth through position statements, a peer-reviewed journal, and educational opportunities such as an annual conference and regional CME events.

Advocacy: The CPS works to identify gaps in and promote improvements to public policy that affects the health of children and youth.

Public education: The CPS works to increase public awareness and education about the health needs and health care of children and youth. Our goal is to help parents make informed decisions about their children’s health by producing reliable and accessible health information for parents and others who care for children.

Surveillance and research: The CPS monitors rare diseases and conditions through the Canadian Paediatric Surveillance Program, and ensures continued research into vaccine-associated adverse reactions and vaccine-preventable diseases through IMPACT (Immunization Monitoring Program, ACTive).


Canadian Paediatric Society collaborated with the Dietitians of Canada and Health Canada in order to revise the guidelines on breastfeeding.[1][2]
