Canadian Paediatric Society founded in 1922, is a voluntary professional association that represents more than 3,600 paediatricians, paediatric subspecialists, paediatric residents, and others who work with and care for children and youth.

The Canadian Paediatric Society is the 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.
Goals of CPS are:
• Professional education: The CPS supports the education needs of paediatricians and other child and youth health professionals through position statements, a peer-review journal, and educational opportunities such as an annual conference, online education 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 help parents make informed decisions about their children’s health by producing reliable and accessible health information
• 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).
