National Advocacy and Calls to Action
The CFMS along with the other Canadian Medical Forum partners signed this joint Call to Action on PPE. We want to ensure that our all healthcare professionals in Canada are protected and safe as they go about their life-saving work.
The CFMS is proud to announce that we are supporting 20 different medical student community care projects through our COVID-19 community care initiative grants. These grassroots initiatives are taking place across the country and we look forward to continuing to see medical students make a huge difference with their work.
Medical student projects will be using the hashtag #Medicalstudentscare to denote their work. Watch for this on social media and help us spread the word!

The COVID-19 pandemic is bringing on global economic uncertainty, to which Canada is not immune. You may have heard emergency relief measures that were recently passed by the federal and provincial governments to help address the economic hardships that many Canadians are feeling at the moment. We have compiled a summary of applicable measures that may impact Canadian medical students.
This document is a live working document for wellness resources available to students during the COVID-19 self-isolation period. Please add your Mental Health, Physical Health, Social Health, Nutrition and other resources in the sheets below. If you have any questions, please contact the CFMS National Officer of Wellness ([email protected]), or your local Wellness Committee/Officer (local contacts sheet). Thank you to the U of T MD Program's SHINE organization for initating this project!
