Canadian Medical Association

Today marks the first day of Pride Month 2022 and we can be proud of the work that has been done so far across Canada to break down the stigma against members of the 2SLGBTQI community.

As physicians, it is our privilege to serve patients while respecting their identity and lived experience. The diversity of identities in our profession and our communities creates the richness that is Canada.

We all deserve to work in a fulfilling environment where we are treated fairly, as do our colleagues and our next generation of doctors. We must continue to learn and work together to create truly safe spaces for all. 

During this Pride Month, I would like to thank physicians from the 2SLGBTQI community who contribute every day to fighting prejudice.
