CMA to divest its reserves from fossil fuel investments, will explore opportunities in renewable energy solutions as a result of membership

August 27, 2015

On August 26, 2015, Canadian Medical Association (CMA) member delegates attending the CMA’s Annual Meeting voted to direct their Association to divest its reserves of investments (used for the management of CMA operations) in energy companies whose primary business relies upon fossil fuels. The CMA has indicated it will move to make this transition as soon as possible.

Delegates also directed the CMA to explore investment opportunities, for its reserves, in renewable energy solutions.

These decisions apply only to CMA reserves, and not to MD clients’ investments or portfolios.
