About the Canadian Medical Association

The Canadian Medical Association (CMA) is leading a national movement of physicians who believe in a better future of health.

The CMA’s goal is to build a more sustainable, accessible health system — more urgently needed than ever — and a new culture of medicine that champions equity, diversity and inclusion.

Its work is informed by the tens of thousands of doctors, residents and medical students across the country. Together, they reflect a range of backgrounds, types of practice and locations — rural, remote and urban.

The CMA also collaborates with government, across the health sector, with professional organizations representing the many people who deliver care alongside physicians and with networks of the patients and caregivers they serve.
