In 2013, we celebrate the 50th year of incorporation of the Association. The ACPO has fought for many years to ensure the highest standard of practice in our profession. Only through an Act of Parliament regulating our profession, can the public be assured of competency and true accountability on the part of chemists in Ontario.
This has been the fundamental raison d’être of the association, and the reason why the majority of our members continue to support ACPO’s efforts.
The ACPO provides a practical avenue for chemists to interact with peers and participate in career development initiatives. But most importantly, the Association provides a way for chemists to collectively work towards the betterment of society.
One of our main endeavours is the push for licensure on behalf of Ontario chemists to improve our standards of excellence in the eyes of the public, our peers, and our province.
Clean water, clean air, safe medicines, and safe foods...
Chartered Chemists are working diligently to make sure that all of these essentials of daily life remain
available to Canadians.
