Member-only discussion spaces are available so that you can post questions to your colleagues. Members can set up a discussion topic and follow or respond in the chat. Whether it is a research study or a question about clinical operations, this forum allows OAGC-ACGO (full) members to quickly survey other provincial genetic counsellor colleagues.

Don’t miss any opportunities and updates.

Members will have access to information about professional events including opportunities for CEUs, job posts and any legislative changes relevant to the profession.

Lead and participate in developing the genetics profession in Ontario.

As the OAGC-ACGO works towards title protection of Ontario’s Genetic Counsellors, have your say in representing the profession. Be involved in the progression of the field by supporting OAGC-ACGO through active membership and by attending annual general meetings, volunteering, or leading.

You can earn CEUs at a lowered cost (when available).

As a valued member of OAGC-ACGO, you will be amongst the first to know about provincial and local meetings and have access to early-bird discounted registration fees.
