CADA Special Member's Meeting

Please join us for this short and important member meeting. You will be asked to approve the merger between CADA and the HMEPA-ON group. This is an exciting opportunity for a larger and stronger association. The new entity will have a more specific Ontario focus and will continue to advocate for Ontario vendors with ADP, stakeholders and all other relevant decision-makers. We accomplished a lot for vendors in 2020 and with your help, 2021 will see even greater visibility and support for vendors. Membership is growing, we have just completed our new strategic plan, and we have an ambitious agenda for 2021-2022.

This merger will result in the following advantages:

  1. One unified voice in front of government decision makers.
  2. Expansion and diversification of our membership.
  3. More volunteers and the ability to accomplish more.

Not able to be there on the day? Complete the proxy form and return to the office before April 27th, 2021 to have your voice heard.

Motion: Be it resolved that the merger between the Canadian Assistive Devices Association (CADA) and the Home Medical Equipment Providers Association of Ontario (HMEPA-ON) should proceed.

More change is coming. Your voice needs to be heard. We’re stronger together.

See you April 30!
