Canadian Medical Association

The CMA sparks action on issues that matter to the medical profession and Canadians. We unite physicians and physicians-in-training from across the country to amplify their perspective. We work with members and partners to build policies and programs to improve Canadians’ health, and we promote these policies directly to governments.

Our goal is to bring about positive change in Canadian health care with the interests of doctors and their patients front and centre.

Priority issues

As the collective voice of physicians in Canada, the CMA has a unique perspective on Canada’s health care landscape. This gives us a clear view of which issues demand the most urgent attention, whether they are long-standing or emerging. Today, our advocacy priorities include:

Ongoing health issues

The CMA’s history of health advocacy spans decades. We continue to monitor many ongoing issues, bringing the physician voice to the conversation and providing doctors with resources and information to support their practice.
