Canadian Medical Assocation

CMA members have been shaping Canadian health care for more than 150 years. That opportunity to advocate for change — on a national level — is just one of the many benefits membership brings. You also gain access to an array of up-to-date clinical resources valued at more than $2,000 a year — and get exclusive discounts on clinical tools and software, business services, cell service, travel, and more. Save, learn and have your voice heard on some of the most critical health topics facing our country, all by becoming a member of the CMA.

Be heard. Have an impact. Make a difference.

Become part of a legacy of advocating for positive change in Canadian health care. Thanks in part to the awareness-raising efforts of CMA members, the CMA has been part of many historic health care changes, including the dramatic drop in Canadians’ tobacco use, the establishment of RRSPs, and the creation of the Canadian Cancer Society. Today, members are driving equally important national dialogue on cannabis legalization, opioid prescribing, physician wellness, medical assistance in dying and other significant health issues. Through the CMA, physicians across the country have a platform to connect and engage with each other on health and professional topics that matter to them.
