Participate in the Canadian Medical Association


CMA logo

The Canadian Medical Association is the voice of the medical profession in Canada. It draws on the passion, knowledge and skill of its tens of thousands of members to advocate for a healthy population and a vibrant medical profession.

The CMA’s priority is to meet the needs of Canadian physicians and physicians-in-training, from medical school through retirement. They serve members by providing them with heath care advocacy and clinical and innovation support.

Make a meaningful difference

Address new challenges in health care

Medical innovation, new technologies and big data bring challenges and opportunities, and the CMA is facing them head on. Play your part in improving health care by contributing to grassroots and national initiatives. As a member, you can take on issues that matter by joining the Member e-Panel, or becoming a Health Advocate.

Bring a patient perspective

The CMA is committed to supporting its members' efforts to empower and care for their patients. They’re working to bring a patient perspective to everything they do — to strengthen and enrich their advocacy work, like seniors’ care and to help develop policies that resonate within and beyond the profession.

Engage with stakeholders across the medical community

The CMA connects physicians, physicians-in-training, patients and medical community partners across Canada to expand their knowledge and influence. You can get involved by contributing to the CMA Health SummitCommunities of Interest or the Ambassador Program initiatives.

Help build a more vibrant medical profession

The CMA is partnering with physicians and physicians-in-training across Canada to improve health care performance and build a strong future for medical culture and professionalism. The CMA makes it easier for its members to connect with their colleagues to address critical health concerns. The CMA is pressing forward on policies and programs that will help maintain its members' health, well-being and professional satisfaction. 

CMA Annual General Meeting

The CMA Annual Meeting is held each August. Members attend business sessions that consider critical issues referred by General Council.
