Canadian Medical Association Approves Restructuring of Governance Structure

The Canadian Medical Association Board of Directors has unanimously approved a restructuring of its governance structure. The restructuring creates a new subsidiary (currently known as NewCo) that will contain the revenue-generating areas of the CMA including cma.ca, publishing operations (including CMAJ), clinical tools and accreditation services. In the new model, the CMA will focus on advocacy and policy and continue its close collaboration with provincial/territorial medical associations and affiliated medical societies. The restructuring also approved creation of a new Canadian Medical Association Holdings (CMAH) Board of Directors that will play an integrating role between CMA, MD Physician Services and NewCo.
