The COA Executive is more focused than ever on engaging with COA members. The pandemic and resulting restrictions have impacted so many of our connections – including those with the COA. But with the arrival of virtual meeting options, we now have the opportunity to gather, converse and connect no matter where we are. Now we can send the COA President to YOU for a virtual visit!

Over the next year, members of the COA’s Presidential Line will reconnect with the orthopaedic community from coast to coast through virtual town halls and small group discussions. We promise to listen, learn, share insights, and act in whatever capacity we can. Our Canada-wide tour is on the road!

If you and colleagues from your region would like participate in the tour, please contact Pearl Nasirembe in Member Relations to schedule a virtual chat:
