About NHPPA
The Natural Health Products Protection Association (NHPPA) is one of Canada’s leading non-profit activist organizations with a mission to protect the alternative health care industry’s access to natural health products and practitioners ability to practice. NHPPA’s message is one of inclusion. Natural health products and practices want a place at Canada’s societal table of diversity and choice. NHPPA ran powerful national campaigns for a number of years on behalf of affected manufacturers, retailers, practitioners and the public.
