Overview of Affiliate Membership
The CSPA serves as an umbrella organization for Canadian not-for-profit patient groups and organizations that deal with skin conditions, diseases and traumas. By working together, we can strongly advocate for the needs of skin patients across the country and provide comprehensive education and support.
Organizations or local support groups who join the CSPA benefit greatly by sharing information and having a wider audience. Skin patients and their families benefit by becoming part of a bigger community and gaining access to information about treatment, care, and research in skin disease.
