A Canadian national, voluntary association of physicians and medical learners that advocates on national health matters. Its primary mandate is to encourage positive change in the health care system by leading on key health issues facing doctors and their patients including health and wellness, virtual care, climate change and health, access to care, and opioids.
The real estate decision to renew in the existing space in Ottawa, ON opened the opportunity for the organization to modernize and freshen up the work environment. Using new open concept design and workplace standards the organization was able to align the new workplace with their cultural objectives related to collaboration, health and wellness, technology, and ergonomics. The new design was a welcome change for all employees. The organization has created a more dynamic, productive workplace by opening-up the space, adding colour and vibrance, as well as alternative meeting amenities, including the café/lounge for casual gatherings and information exchanges. The addition of moveable wall systems in the more formal meeting rooms provides the organization with the flexibility to open-up the space for training and townhall meetings. The space now reflects and facilitates the organization’s mission statement, which is to take action on health issues that matter to Canadians
