As we adapt our work environments and routines to manage the corona virus,  information sharing is essential.  CAIDP is joining forces with the Canadian Council for International Cooperation (CCIC), the Inter-Council Network of provincial councils,  the Climate Action Network Canada (CAN-RAC), and the Canadian Partnership for Women and Children’s Health (CanWaCH)  to do just that.
