Think Nationally, Act Locally
With over 15,000 members nationwide, Obesity Canada is the largest organization of obesity professionals in the world. As the network spans such a large and diverse geography, there is a need to deploy OC at the regional level, with local OC chapters. Obesity Canada’s Student and New Professional network (OC-SNP) has taken a similar approach, and has had enormous success facilitating collaboration and networking at the regional level.
The excitement is contagious! In fact, more local chapters have been deployed since Calgary launched: Hamilton, Toronto, Sudbury, Gatineau-Ottawa, Windsor, Vancouver, Edmonton, Halifax, Montreal with many more to come. Obesity Canada’s vision is to see local chapters form across the country. See the list of chapters to see if there is one yet in your area!
If you are an Obesity Canada member and don’t see a local chapter in your area but want to learn more about how to start one, please contact us!
