In 2016 Canadian Certification Council of Pathologists' Assistants (CCCPA) became active. The CCCPA will operate under the CAP-ACP but outside of the PA Section, as per ISO 17024 "Conformity assessment - General requirements for bodies operating certification of persons".
As a result of this announcement the PA Section Bylaws were revised and ratified at the 2017 AGM in Charlottetown, PEI after the lack of a Quorum in Vancouver 2016.

Position Statement - The CAP-ACP recognizes and endorses the policies and criteria as outlined by the CCCPA.
