Statement by COS regarding diversity and inclusion

(April 2, 2019)

The Canadian Ophthalmological Society (COS) encourages inclusivity and opposes discrimination based on (but not limited to) religion, race, citizenship, country or ethnic origin, language, age, political affiliation or opinion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, cognitive or physical ability, and economic status. As the recognized unified voice for ophthalmology in Canada, COS is strengthened by its diversity. COS members come from broad and diverse backgrounds, and this variety of experiences, training, and personal qualities is fundamental to ophthalmologists’ ability to provide the highest quality and culturally competent care for all patients.
