In 2014, PHA Canada initiated a new Ambassador Program in an effort to extend the organization’s reach across the country and provide leadership to the PH community. We welcomed a group of talented, committed, and passionate individuals to champion awareness and advocacy initiatives. In October, the term for this inaugural cohort of Ambassadors will come to an end and PHA Canada is seeking applications from PH community leaders across the country to form a new cohort of Ambassadors for the November 2016 – October 2018 term.

Ambassadors work on behalf of PHA Canada to extend our reach across the country and provide leadership to the pulmonary hypertension community. Ambassadors are champions of PHA Canada who seek to inspire others and facilitate collective action in support of a better life for those affected by pulmonary hypertension. We seek applications from members who are passionate about furthering PHA Canada’s mission and who have demonstrated commitment to supporting at least one of our five key priority areas: support, education, advocacy, awareness, and research. For more information on Ambassadors’ qualifications, responsibilities, and requirements, please access the job description above.

Let's create your perfect volunteer position. We would love to work with you to create your perfect volunteer position. We match each volunteer's professional skill set, availability and interest to a specific project with concrete, measurable results. This means that volunteers are engaged on a project basis that suits both their personal goals for volunteering as well as the goals of PHA Canada.

Becoming an advocate is another powerful way to affect change. PH may not be as common as other well-known conditions, but when each member of the PH community speaks out, we have a powerful voice that gets powerful results.

When you contact your local MPs, share your personal story with government officials and get involved as a spokesperson when action is needed you are helping to assure that PH is put in the spotlight and that needs of PH patients with regards to access to medicines, research and other vital services are being met. Working together, PH advocates have helped us to get better access to medications and assure the availability of combination therapy in Ontario, but there is more to do!

Connect with experienced advocates and PHA staff. Learn more about the issues that need your voice. Take action and make a difference! If you are interested in becoming a PH advocate, please write to us at advocacy@phacanada.ca.
