Welcome to the ORNAA website


It is hard to believe we are just a few months away from the ORNAC National Conference, taking place in Edmonton, Alberta, this May. Seems like not that long ago that we were in Ottawa! Here's hoping that the weather cooperates and we don't have a lot of the white stuff on the ground for our national and international visitors.

Registration is now open for the conference and the conference education program is also now available. Have a look on the ORNAC website for further information https://www.ornac.ca/conference/

Thank-you to all the members who have already renewed their memberships or our new members who have joined the association for the first time this year! By now, each of you should have received your ORNAC membership package in the mail with your membership card, information and ORNAC pin. If you are not an ORNAC member or have not renewed your previous membership, but are interested in joining, visit https://www.ornac.ca/membership/register.phtml for more information. It is not too late to join for the 2015 membership year!

Lastly, congratulations go out to Barbara Mushayandebvu, Past President of ORNAA, for her successful bid for President Elect of ORNAC. We wish Barb every success on her this new and exciting journey! Thank-you, as well, to all of the members who participated in this inaugural national online vote.

I look forward to seeing many of you in Edmonton in May. Till then, let's keep our fingers crossed that spring in just around the corner!

Kind regards,

Lucia Pfeuti RN, BN, CPN(C)
ORNAA President
