In response to the catastrophic earthquake in Haiti on January 12, the COA Executive Committee has authorized cash donations to the Canadian Red Cross and Médecins sans frontières.
Based on their experience during the 2004 tsunami, disaster-relief organizations are currently calling for immediate financial support to help them provide priority resources as assessed on-site. The COA sets aside funds in its budget for assistance in international medicine and has elected to contribute to relief efforts in Haiti.
What legacy will you leave? The Canadian Orthopaedic Research Legacy program enables orthopaedic surgeons to make designated donations to ensure continued Canadian research in orthopaedics. Learn more ...
We regret that emails asking for surgical advice or sources of surgical information are not answered. Under the Canada Health Act, all patients must be referred to an orthopaedic surgeon by a family physician, therefore the COA cannot provide any surgical referrals.
