Campaigns & Actions
Provincial Campaigns

We are Ontario’s nurses and we represent the front-line experience and knowledge in every health-care sector in the province.

ONA’s strong and collective voice is well-respected and listened to by policy-makers, government, stakeholders and others in health care. Nurses know all too well the many challenges our system faces each and every day.

As patient advocates, ONA members – RNs, nurse practitioners, registered practical nurses and health-care professionals – stand up and are committed to speaking out about many issues that directly affect our ability to deliver high quality patient/client/resident care.

Provincial Campaigns

Our successful and award-winning campaigns underscore the many challenges our members face on the front lines. From not enough RNs within our health-care system to heavy workloads, understaffing and service cuts, we support and promote initiatives that improve and protect public health care in Ontario.

Our campaigns aim to increase awareness and advocate for change, and we work with leaders and members to ensure they reach audiences across Ontario.
