Doing health
during COVID
and beyond


Canada’s health care is in crisis. The Omicron variant has pushed an already struggling system to its breaking point. It has underscored the urgent need to address wait times and backlogs for service, ensure equitable access to care, and support a healthier and more agile workforce.

The 2022 CMA Health Summit Series is kicking off bold conversations on how to do health differently in Canada.

Reform. Rebuild. Create.

Four virtual sessions will bring together diverse voices to discuss and debate innovative solutions to:

  • reform primary care, reduce wait times and develop new models of care
  • rebuild the health workforce, including how to best recruit, train and retain future health care workers
  • create a health system that is an engine for economic growth

This year, we are proud to partner with The Globe and Mail and l’Université de Montréal for two of the sessions, with one hosted in French.

“Fixing the health system won’t be easy – but now’s the time to push for care that’s innovative, responsive and timely, and to create supports for a healthy, agile workforce.” – Dr. Katharine Smart, CMA president

Help lead the change at this year’s Health Summit.
