We are a Coalition representing thousands of OMA community and academic family doctors and specialists from across Ontario that stood up to the OMA and the Wynne government on August 14, 2016, and rejected a deeply flawed tentative Physician Services Agreement (TPSA).
As front-line doctors, we believe that the government and the OMA must develop a physician services agreement that is good for patients, protects and improves patient access to care, is fair to doctors, and provides funding for these services.
The Coalition created the opportunity for all OMA members to have their say on the TPSA at the August 14th general members’ meeting. The results of this vote have laid the groundwork for renewal of the OMA and a re-set of the relationship with government; based on equality and respect.
Our mission is to facilitate renewal of the Ontario Medical Association (OMA) to achieve more effective advocacy for patient care, responsiveness to membership and process transparency and accountability.
We aim to re-establish physicians as respected leaders and patient care champions by re-establishing a collaborative relationship as equals with the Ontario government.
