Holiday Greetings from the President
These last 12 months has taught me a great deal about how important it is that we all work together to serve the public of Ontario. I feel fortunate to continue to enjoy a career in a profession I love. 2020 has reminded me more than ever about what truly matters – good health, kindness, perseverance, and an unending desire to improve the lives and health of the people we serve. From all of us at CCO to all of you, very best wishes for a healthy and inspiring 2021!

Holiday Greetings from the Registrar
There are times in life where you just have to keep going and press on. 2020 was an entire year of that. I’m grateful for a competent, loyal, cross trained staff team who always goes above and beyond. I’ve worried quietly about staff members who’ve recovered from COVID-19, returned from maternity leave and travelled to the office in downtown Toronto periodically on public transit, while at the same time trying to ensure key operations at CCO are functioning effectively and efficiently.
I’m grateful for the support of Council who has weathered many storms in 2020 and has kept focus on CCO’s raison d’être, protection of the public. I’m grateful to the members of the profession who, during a global health crisis, largely stepped up to the plate, reviewed and complied with the President’s Messages and government orders and directives and continued to provide high quality care. To the many CCO members, friends, colleagues and system partners, thank you for persevering over the past many months. 2021 will bring different challenges but I am confident that together we will be able to rise above and meet those challenges. Best wishes to all of you for a safe, healthy and optimistic New Year!
Ms Jo-Ann Willson
Registrar and General Counsel
