Power through association
The Canadian Association of Community Health Centres (CACHC) is the only organization dedicated exclusively to providing Community Health Centres (CHCs) across Canada with support, networking opportunities, organizational development tools, and policy and advocacy leadership focused on community-oriented primary health care and healthy public policy.

Value in Purchasing
Members of CACHC have access to reduced pricing and purchasing support on a wide range of supplies and services through the association’s Value in Purchasing (VIP) Program. Available exclusively to members of CACHC, the VIP Program is offered through CACHC’s national partnership agreement with ASSOCIUM GAIN, a Canada-wide group purchasing and procurement organization with over 20 years of industry-leading experience.
