Our Mission & Vision

Representing Ontario Rheumatologists and promoting their pursuit of excellence through: Leadership, Advocacy, Research & Education and Communications.

Ontario Rheumatology Association's Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

The Ontario Rheumatology Association is committed to the principle of respectful inclusion and diversity. This commitment recognizes the fundamental dignity, worth, and rights of all individuals to live freely and in peace.

Promoting equity enriches our professional community by cultivating diverse ideas and perspectives, supporting social accountability, and allowing us to better reflect the communities we serve. In turn, our patients benefit from advocacy, allyship, and cultural competence and awareness in their healthcare.

We recognize that this commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion is more than an expression of our values above, but an ongoing and active endeavour.
