To our Association members,

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.

If you are going to Haiti to offer your services, please contact the COA before you depart.  We'd like to keep our membership and the community informed about the orthopaedic efforts that are being carried out by our members.  Contact Cynthia Vezina at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or 514 874-9003 x 3 with your information.

For any members seeking more information, the COA has created a list of links to a number of disaster-relief and volunteer-medical groups.

Dr. Cy Frank
