Canadian Medical Association

At the Canadian Medical Association (CMA), we champion better health, health care and a thriving health workforce. Member participation in our Annual General Meeting (AGM) — on Sunday, Aug. 21, from 11 am to 3:15 pm ET — is a chance to help lead that change.

This year’s virtual AGM is a forum for members to ask questions of CMA leadership, vote on bylaw changes and address other corporate matters.

The AGM will be followed by the Nominations Committee report from 3:30 to 4 pm ET, where delegates can vote on the president-elect and other nominations.

In addition, Dr. Katharine Smart will share reflections on her term and welcome her successor, Dr. Alika Lafontaine — the CMA’s first Indigenous president. His historic leadership will be celebrated following the AGM at a separate virtual event.

The 2022 AGM webpage is a one-stop shop for all AGM-related information, including the agenda and proposed bylaw changes, as well as links to the annual report (to be released June 28) and the Nominations Committee report (to be released by Aug. 5).

When you register for the AGM, you will be prompted to sign up for one of two pre-AGM information sessions in July. They are an opportunity to learn more about how the AGM works, what to expect and how to participate; review proposed bylaw changes; and ask questions.

By taking an active role at AGM 2022 you can help shape the future of our association.

Note: CMA membership is a prerequisite for voting at the AGM. Physicians and medical learners must join or renew their memberships with the CMA before 8 pm ET on Tues., Aug. 16. Non-members, including members of the public, may register to observe the AGM. Registration will close at this time and date for both members and non-members.

For more information, or if you are unsure about your membership status, please contact the CMA Member Service Centre at or 1-888-855-2555.
