The CMA’s focus on community engagement is about bringing together groups of people with shared passions and interests related to health to explore ideas, share experiences, solve problems and take action. Through this online community we have an opportunity to address the most pressing issues currently affecting the health care system, the medical profession and Canadians.

Providing your feedback on policies

Policy development is a critical component of the CMA’s work. It guides our advocacy and our actions on behalf of members and stakeholders. Gathering input on draft policies from the physicians, stakeholders and patients whom these policies will affect is an essential step in the policy development process.

Through this new community engagement platform, members and stakeholders now have a space to discuss policy issues and provide feedback that will influence and inform CMA policies. To learn more about how your feedback will be used, please review the CMA's Policy Feedback Guidelines.
