Representative: Dr. Vivien Brown

Despite the pandemic and the health care demands, I am happy to share that AMWA has been active with multiple online meetings and presentations. The AGM for AMWA is being held shortly, March 25-28/2021 and the plans and speakers are amazing. The Federation of Medical Women of Canada has also been busy, productive and engaged at many levels. There was a fabulous presentation planned by the Women’s Peace and Security group with Jacqueline O’Neill, Ambassador for Women, Peace and Security. Her presentation is up on the website And finally, March 11/2021 has been declared as the day to celebrate Women Physicians in Canada! So very busy and engaged in North America.
