To the Board of Directors of the Ontario Medical Association,

We would like to acknowledge the challenging circumstances our organization and its members are facing. The COVID19 pandemic has created an unprecedented moment of hardship for patients and physicians alike. The board, too, has had to respond quickly in order to advocate for the safety and wellbeing of doctors amidst a crisis that includes PPE shortages and economic uncertainty.

It is on this latter point that many members have taken pause while reflecting on the most recent President’s update. The matter of income stabilization is a material concern to all members, many of whom find little solace in the recent announcements.  

It is with this in mind that we respectfully ask you, the board, to convene an urgent virtual townhall this week alongside the negotiations task force in order to explain to members the rationale for the decision. It is our hope that members will have a safe space to ask questions and be given transparent answers during this most trying of times.

Sincerely,

Adam Kassam MD MPH FRCPC

Chair, Section of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation
