Elections 2018 - Not A Second Longer
The OMA has developed an election focused ad campaign titled Not a Second Longer. The campaign demonstrates the repercussions of the government’s poor decision-making by confronting long and painful wait times in Ontario. Visit NotASecondLonger.ca to view the campaign in it’s entirety.
Write a Letter to Your Candidates
With the provincial election fast approaching, the candidates in your riding need to know that health care is a priority for Ontario. As a physician and advocate for better health care, take action today by sending a letter to your candidates letting them know you will not wait a second longer for the health care your patients deserve.
OMA Election Platform: Not a Second Longer
OMA’s government relations department has developed a document for physicians to use while meeting with local candidates during the election and MPPs in the next government.
The final page of the 2018 Election Platform “Not A Second Longer” is a pledge that doctors can ask their candidates to sign. Our hope is that each candidate will commit to working with doctors and begin fixing the problems in the system.
Election Readiness Toolkit
The main objective of our strategy is to make health care the number one issue during the election and to position Ontario physicians as the leading authority in the health care system. The toolkit offers some helpful thoughts on how to engage candidates.

Proposed Federal Tax Changes
As the federal budget is being debate in the House of Commons it’s important to make sure MPs are aware of the concerns relating to the proposed tax changes.
Write a Letter to Your MP
Please take a moment to send them a letter outlining the impact these changes could have on patient care.
The Liberal government posted a regulatory proposal to amend the Health Insurance Act to allow for a smooth transition of home care services for Canadians returning to Ontario from elsewhere in the country. If the amendment happens as proposed, this would mean the change could take place this fall, 18 months after MPP Lisa Gretzky’s private member’s bill was first tabled to close this gap.
