Who we are looking for

The CMPA seeks and values diversity among Council members. A wide range of perspectives and opinions promotes effective governance and is vital to the CMPA’s ability to respond to the complex, multi-stakeholder environment in which it operates.

We aim for a strong Council committed to equity and diversity where the experience of each member combines to collectively meet the needs of the Association. Our Council aims to reflect diversity across characteristics such as gender, age, sexual orientation and gender identity, ethnicity and race, as well as within medical professionals and representation from the entire country.

The CMPA is therefore seeking a diverse pool of candidates for nomination to Council for 2022. We invite and encourage submissions from members from all backgrounds, who feel they can make a unique and valuable contribution to Council.
