Call for Nominations to the OPA Council

Do you have ideas about how to advocate for Ontario’s psychiatrists and their patients? Are you a leader who enjoys working with a passionate team? Do you want to make a positive difference for our profession while also advancing your professional career? Apply for a position on the OPA Council!

The OPA strives to ensure that our Council is representative of the population of Ontario that psychiatrists serve. At this time we would specifically encourage self-nominations of psychiatrists from groups or regions that are not currently represented on Council.

At the end of the 2019 membership year, the following positions on the OPA council became available:

  • Council Member (Full Member or Life Member) – 3;
  • Council Member (Member-in-training) – 2
  • Treasurer.

The following incumbent councillors confirmed their intention to serve on the Council for another three-year term: Dr. Ken Fung (councillor), Dr. Jon Davine (treasurer).

A list of positions up for election this year follows together with the names of candidates which have been put forward for these positions by the OPA Council.
