OMSA stands with Ontario nurses in the call to repeal Bill 124
Bill 124 is an Ontario legislation that limits wage increases for nurses and actively contributes to the current nursing staffing crisis by exacerbating burnout, decreasing morale, and undervaluing the essential role that nurses play in our healthcare system. In doing so, Bill 124 threatens the quality of healthcare provided to patients across the province, and negatively impacts the training of future medical professionals. The strain Bill 124 has placed on the healthcare system will have adverse effects at all levels of care, for years to come.
The Ontario Medical Students Association stands with nurses in the call to immediately repeal Bill 124.
