About Us

What we do to keep you on your feet

Originally started in the 1920’s, the Alberta Podiatry Association (APA) was created to support Podiatrists in Alberta. It functioned as both association and the regulatory body of the profession until 2012 when the provincial government included Podiatrists in the Health Care Act (HCA). Once under the HCA the APA became the College of Podiatric Physicians of Alberta (CPPA). With this change came new regulations, most notably, the separation of college and association duties/functions. This necessitated the development of a new association that would continue to advocate and advance the profession of Podiatric Medicine in Alberta. Thus, the Alberta Podiatric Medical Association (ABPMA) was born.
