AMA Membership Guide

Silvana Cruces, AMA Payables Administrator

Renew your AMA membership and pay online!

Your membership adds to a strong, united voice for the medical profession on a provincial and national level. In most cases, your AMA membership automatically entitles you to membership in the Canadian Medical Association. Both groups offer you a wide range of benefits and services to meet your professional, financial, personal and family needs.

We hope this guide serves as a convenient reference for information about membership and the activities undertaken by the AMA and the CMA to advance the profession. You’re welcome to contact the associations at any time for assistance or additional information.
