Collaborations and Consultations

As part of our work on policy change and collective action, PAN works with various allies and partners on communications campaigns and activities. We sit on a number of regional, provincial, and national committees.  As a recognized provincial voice representing our members, we are often invited to consult on a broad range of issues. We also consistently advocate for the inclusion of people with lived experiences, including that they be compensated for their input and leadership.
