À la suite d’un vote des membres au Conseil général, l’AMC se départira de ses placements dans le secteur des combustibles fossiles et évalu

On August 26, 2015, Canadian Medical Association (CMA) member delegates at the CMA's Annual General Meeting voted in favor of a motion urging their Association to divest its reserve investments (used for fund ongoing CMA activities) in energy companies whose main activities are related to fossil fuels. CMA management has indicated that it intends to initiate as soon as possible the necessary mechanisms for this transition.

Delegates also urged the CMA to analyze, for its reserves, investment opportunities in the renewable energy sector.

These decisions apply only to the CMA's reserves, and not to the investments or portfolios of MD's clients.
