Membership

The United Ostomy Association of Canada Inc. (UOAC) is an association of member chapters, with representation from all ten provinces. Chapters are entitled to vote at the Annual Business Meeting to determine UOAC course of action, to make or amend bylaws, and to elect the executive officers and directors of UOAC. Chapters may be represented at the Annual Business meeting by delegates, or by proxy given to an attending delegate from another chapter.

Individuals may join a chapter, or may be national members. Healthcare professionals and corporations are encouraged to join UOAC.

To join a chapter: Contact the chapter in your area, or attend a meeting. You will be required to pay annual dues, at an amount determined by the chapter. You will be entitled to vote at chapter meetings, and to join committees or run for office at the local and national level if you wish. Chapter membership dues also entitle you to attend all chapter meetings, to receive the local newsletter, to receive Ostomy Canada magazine and to purchase other UOAC publications at a discounted rate.
