As a national coalition, HEAL decisions are based on a consensus-based approach. HEAL meets 4 times per year with the objectives of: sharing information across organizations; working on those strategic issues that are of importance to all members; and meeting with external organizations to discuss policy issues of mutual interest and importance.
The Co-Chairs of HEAL are Mr. Michael Brennan, CEO of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association, and Ondina Love, CEO of the Canadian Dental Hygienists Association. HEAL’s secretariat is housed with the Canadian Physiotherapy Association.
Currently, there are 39 members of HEAL.
