Canadian Medical Association (CMA)
The Canadian Medical Association (CMA) is leading a national movement of physicians who believe in a better future of health.
Our goal is a more sustainable, accessible health system — more urgently needed than ever — and a new culture of medicine that champions equity, diversity and inclusion.
We drive change through advocacy, giving and knowledge sharing – guided by values of collaboration and inclusion.
Commitment to DiversityAt the CMA, we know that the biggest lever of change is community. And that the inclusion and participation of diverse groups and individuals brings forward perspectives and experiences that challenge the status quo and lead to better decision-making and outcomes. Our strategic priorities include elevating diversity and inclusion in the profession and supporting psychological, physical and cultural safety for both providers and patients of all backgrounds. We partner for impact with national organizations representing a wide range of health stakeholders. We are also committed to fostering a workplace environment that respects and embraces diversity.
Vision for the FutureThe CMA’s vision is a vibrant medical profession and a healthy population:
- a society where every individual has equal opportunities to be healthy
- a more sustainable, accessible health system where patients are partners
- a new medical culture that’s focused on physical and mental well-being and embraces equity, diversity and inclusion
Together we believe change is possible.
