About the COA

logo_big.gifEver since its inception, the COA has enjoyed an international reputation. Liaison officers are appointed to participate in and maintain our affiliation with national and worldwide orthopaedic institutions.

The COA maintains close ties with the Royal College. The training, education and qualification of orthopaedic surgeons have been within the purview of both our Association and the College. The co-operation between these two institutions has been exemplary over the years, both acknowledging their respective mandates and compatibility.

In the face of increasing sub specialization, the COA has avoided fragmentation by forming subspecialty committees within the parent organization. Thus, the Association speaks with a united voice on behalf of the orthopaedic community in Canada. Such major activities include: Continuing Medical Education, the organization of orthopaedic training centres across Canada and collaborating with the Royal College/College of Physicians of Quebec on issues involving orthopaedic surgeons.
