Our doctors maintain professional, respectful and compassionate relationships with their patients. This includes accompanying patients as they make difficult choices, understanding fully that the final decision is always the patient’s. 

Our doctors simply ask that they be respected as professionals in return. 

In March, 2015, the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario passed their policy on Professional Obligations and Human Rights. This policy requires Physicians to give effective referrals and in some cases to perform procedures that are contrary to their moral, ethical and religious beliefs. This policy directly contravenes the freedom of conscience of Physicians.

CMDS held a press conference March, 24th, 2015, announcing that CMDS has filed an application asking the court to declare that portions of the CPSO's March 6th, 2015 policy breaches sections of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. To watch the press release, please click the video below.
