RNAO Annual General Meeting will be in person June 23-25, 2023. We can have 9 Consultation Representatives for our chapter.  We also plan to hold a resolutions dinner to review the 2023 Resolutions and identify questions, feedback, and follow-up plans. To register, https://myrnao.ca/consult_reps_2023, and when you have registered, ensure you also register for the Annual General Meeting.


As of June 1st, 2022, the Mississauga Chapter became a new Chapter of RNAO. 

There will be a call for nomination process to complete our new group of Executive Networking Officers.

Our President, Paula Manuel (Past President of Peel Chapter), will be president until spring 2024; we'll update this page once we have bios for the other team members.

Our Chapter attended Queen's Park Day and the Assembly of Leaders; as we know, the RN Understaffing Crisis is a central issue of RNAO.  The Opioid Crisis is the second issue in focus.  The word crisis has been used a great deal these past months, and the meaning comes from a Chinese Proverb; the words danger and opportunity are in the proverb.  Not much difference between the multiple waves of the Pandemic and the current statistics on how many nurses are needed in Ontario.  Released at Queen's Park Day was a new report by RNAO  Career Pathways of Nurses.  

More details to come, but this report will be linked to Nursing Week as we profile Amazing Nurses in our chapter. An email will be arriving in your inbox soon.

Nursing Week Profiles and the nursing careers pathways report

Nursing Week is fast approaching (May 8 – 14, 2023), and we must ensure our voices are heard to advance the profession and improve Ontario’s health system! So we’re joining the RNAO home office’s initiative to turn its new Nursing Career Pathways report into action by celebrating colleagues who stand out for their love of and commitment to nursing and who are worthy of acknowledgment and celebration by their colleagues.  


Please be a part of this initiative, or if you know an RNAO member who should be? Please send us a nomination by Monday, April 27th. 2023. Note: Please ensure the nominee knows you’re submitting their name and they are willing to participate.


To nominate yourself or a nursing colleague within the Mississauga Chapter or any of the Interest Groups, please respond to this email and answer the following four questions (150 words or less per response):

  1. What is the nominee’s role?
  2. What sector of the system do they work in?
  3. Why should this nurse be profiled?
  4. Any additional relevant details to add?
