Affiliate options

Not a nurse? Live outside of Canada? You can still support nursing in Canada and advance the nursing profession. By joining as an affiliate, you will stay up to date with what CNA is doing for Canada’s nursing profession.

Strong allies and movements are built on a strong membership. As a well-seasoned nurse leader and activist, I encourage you to join the Canadian Nurses Association so that, together, we can build a better future in nursing.

Linda Silas, President of the Canadian Federation of Nurses Unions
