Good afternoon. My name is Doris Grinspun and I am the Executive Director of the Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario. RNAO is the professional association for registered nurses who practise in all roles and sectors in Ontario. Our mandate is to advocate for healthy public policy and for the role of registered nurses in enhancing the health of Ontarians.
We are in the midst of a critical period in our province. As the province slowly climbs out of a severe recession, we find our social and physical infrastructure is strained.
