Association of Residents of McGill (ARM) and Féderation des Médecins du Québec (FMRQ)

The ARM represents all RAMQ-funded McGill residents and, along with the other three Québec resident associations (Montréal, Sherbrooke, and Laval), form the Fédération des médecins résidents du Québec (FMRQ). The FMRQ collective agreement is the document that sets guidelines for residents’ salaries, work hours, on-call duties, and all forms of leave. The 2010 collective agreement remained in effect until 2015. Elected members of the FMRQ represent all Québec residents in negotiations with the government. Moreover, the FMRQ is an important resource for residents in academic or psychosocial difficulty.

Canadian Psychiatric Association – Members-in-Training (MIT) Section

Founded in 1951, the Canadian Psychiatric Association (CPA) is the national voluntary professional association for Canada's 4,000 psychiatrists. It serves as an advocate for the professional needs of its members and promotes excellence in education, research, and clinical practice.

The MIT section has direct representation on the CPA board and provides resident representation to other CPA committees. The MIT section’s current goals are to expand membership, generate possible solutions to systemic gaps and issues that affect residents, and help foster the overall professional, academic, and personal development of psychiatric residents.

The executive of the MIT section meets twice a year in person, in conjunction with the spring rounds of meetings in Ottawa and at the CPA’s annual conference in the fall, and it meets regularly via teleconference. It welcomes comments and suggestions from residents.
