Partner Blog: Ontario Nurses Association

During our insightful conversation with Doug Anderson of the Ontario Nurses Association (ONA), we gained a deeper understanding of policy concerns that nurses and healthcare workers across the province have. We also discussed potential solutions to these issues such as staff burnout, wage parity, and retention and recruitment. 

The ONA represents 68,000 nurses and health-care professionals, as well as 18,000 nursing student affiliates, who provide care in hospitals, long-term care, public health, the community, clinics and industry across Ontario. As Ontario’s largest health-care union, they undertake legal challenges and engage in advocacy towards the public and the government on behalf of its members, as well as workers, patients, and residents throughout Ontario. For example, the ONA makes submissions to the provincial government and committees of the Legislative Assembly on a range of topics, to influence change and create dialogue. From the annual budget cycle to changes to health-care services and practices, the ONA provides a front-line nurses’ voice on the issue. 

Thank you, ONA, for your continued support of the program, and dedication to the success of learners and front-line workers in Ontario.
