To advance medical regulation on behalf of the public through collaboration, common standards and best practices.
Six pillars enable FMRAC to achieve this mission as proactively and creatively as possible.
- establish mechanisms for the effective exchange of information, discussion and collaboration with its members and others, on issues that involve medical regulation
- develop policies, standards, statements and perspectives on aspects of medical regulation – either pan-Canadian or drafts that can be adapted by the members
- actively participate in the design and coordination of pan-Canadian health system changes
- be an effective voice to interact with and inform key stakeholders (including governments, the public and media) on medical regulatory matters of national or international importance
- develop and maintain programs, services and benefits for its members
- identify and mitigate risk to medical regulation in a timely manner
Four areas were deemed to be core activities of the organization.
- advocacy and common voice – where FMRAC stands publicly and speaks on behalf of the medical regulatory authorities of Canada
- at the federal level
- with the members, the public and the media – promote pan-Canadian standards, even if they are aspirational, especially when members can use them in discussion with their own governments
- with other national organizations – promote the notion of public interest regulation
- surveillance of political developments and trends that may have an impact on the work of the Members in fulfilling their mandate
- FMRAC Integrated Risk Management System (FIRMS)
- Model Standards for Medical Registration in Canada
