    Dear Anne,

    Thank you for the opportunity to respond to CNA’s request for feedback regarding the revised draft position statement “Primary Health Care”. The upcoming federal election provides a timely context to bring this issue to the forefront.

    Dear Premier Wynne,

    The Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario (RNAO) was pleased when last fall, you directed the Minister of Labour to: “develop a wage gap strategy that will close the gap between men and women in the context of the 21st century economy.” Given that a year has passed, RNAO requests an update on the status of this strategy and the work of the Steering Committee appointed in April.

    Dear Minister Jaczek,

    On behalf of the Registered Nurses' Association of Ontario (RNAO), I would like to commend you and your ministry for revising an aggressive timeline on medical reviews for the Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP). Although we were heartened to read in the media of your ministry's pledge to "get the process right," we remain worried about both the short-term and long-term issues related to the medical review process.

    The Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario (RNAO) is the professional association representing registered nurses (RNs), nurse practitioners (NPs) and nursing students in all settings and roles across Ontario. RNAO's mandate is to speak out on nursing and health issues, including occupational health and we welcome an opportunity to respond to the proposals to amend Ontario Regulation 490/09. This is important to all nurses, especially the many RNs and NPs who practice as occupational health nurses.
