Canadian Medical Association

The Alberta Medical Association is proud to be part of the Canadian Medical Association. Find out about how you can get involved as an AMA member.

Standing up for the health workforce and a better health system has never been more urgent. And it’s increasingly clear that transformational change requires a pan-Canadian response.

The Canadian Medical Association is driving change for and with physicians at a national level. They’re calling for:

  • Urgent collaboration from all levels of government to stabilize the health system.
  • Reduced barriers to licensure to relieve pressure on the health workforce and increase access across the continuum of care.
  • Expanded community-based primary care to better support patients and doctors.
  • A national health human resources strategy to more effectively recruit and retain health workers.
  • Enforcement of the new anti-harassment law for health workers.
