Plan 2028: Beyond the Data
As we look to the future with Plan 2028, we are going beyond the data. This five-year plan is grounded in our dedication to bring visibility and recognition to our professionals, empowering them to make positive impacts to the quality of care and quality of life for all people across this country.
The value of our profession is found in the intersection between clinical knowledge, professional leadership, and service that is empathetic, compassionate, and respectful. The substance of our work provides us the opportunity and responsibility to increase health equity, serve marginalized populations, and support all people living in this country, including First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples, to achieve their desired health outcomes.
