Why join or renew your CMA membership?

The Newfoundland and Labrador Medical Association (NLMA) plays an essential role in your day-to-day professional life. Your NLMA membership also provides you the opportunity to join tens of thousands of physicians from across the country as part of the Canadian Medical Association (CMA).
