Position Statements

As the national voice for emergency physicians in Canada, one of CAEP’s main focuses is to help guide outcomes regarding topics including public-policy and resource allocation.

CAEP members have the opportunity to sit on committees that interact with government, and other prominent organizations that impact decisions within political, economic, social systems and institutions that directly affect patient healthcare and shape the future landscape of emergency medicine.

We encourage all CAEP members to get involved and help improve health care for all Canadians.
