About the Ontario Medical Association (OMA)
Founded in 1880, the Ontario Medical Association (OMA) represents and advocates on behalf of more than 41,000 practicing and retired physicians, medical students and residents from across the province. As the representative of Ontario’s physicians, we advocate for the health of Ontarians and provide leadership for an accessible, quality health-care system.
The OMA is governed by a Council composed of 272 possible delegates, representing 11 districts and 49 sections, and by the Association’s Board of Directors. The Board consists of representatives from the 11 districts, a representative of the six faculties of medicine in Ontario, and five Directors elected by Council.
