You're invited to the Canadian Medical Association's 150th birthday party!
In October 1867, a small group of physicians met in Québec City to establish the Canadian Medical Association (CMA). Sir Charles Tupper — who later went on to become Canada's seventh prime minister — was elected as our first president. Today, the CMA has grown to over 85,000 members, and continues to champion a vibrant profession and a healthy population.¨
