PHriends of PHA Canada

In 2018, PHA Canada celebrated its 10 years a national PH organization. To mark this special occasion, PHA Canada celebrated past and present PH leaders for their unwavering commitment to empowering and bettering the lives of all Canadians affected by PH. Through the special title of "PHriends of PHA Canada", our association seeks to ensure that those who paved the way to where we are today are captured in time and recognized for years to come for their unique and impactful contributions to the larger Canadian PH community.
