List of Resolutions for OMA Members

Section 15-2 of the OMA by-laws provides that if five percent of members sign a petition requesting a general member meeting, the OMA Board has to respond. Council’s powers in respect of the matters designated in the petition are suspended until after such a meeting is held. A general meeting is the only way members can ensure that the Board follows the will of the OMA’s members. As an OMA member, this is your right.

Sign the petition below and be among the thousands of physicians who insist that the OMA leadership finally respond to the demands of OMA members. OMA must fulfill its duty to be fully accountable and transparent to its membership. It is critical to restore democratic reform to the OMA and protect the free speech of its members.

You can read an explanation of the resolutions below in plain language here.

1. Resolution directing that all necessary steps shall be taken to immediately cause a fully independent forensic review of the Ontario Medical Association (OMA) overseen by a retired judge of the Ontario Court of Appeal or the Ontario Superior Court of Justice related to the actions taken by the OMA over the past six years as it relates to its stated purposes and objects, specifically addressing the:

    a) lack of financial transparency through a forensic audit and a value for money analysis;
