From Sept. 21 to Oct. 19, 2022, eligible regulated members were invited to vote for up to four candidates to fill four regulated member openings for CPSA’s governing Council. CPSA would like to sincerely thank all six of our nominees and everyone who took the time to participate by nominating a colleague and/or voting during the election.

We are excited to welcome two newly-elected Councillors, whose terms will start on Jan. 1, 2023. Two Council members were also re-elected for another three years and we look forward to their continued contributions.
