At College of Registered Manual Osteopaths (Canada), we protect our members against discrimination of any type and unjust acts. We work on behalf of our registered manual osteopaths to right the wrong. However if CRMO intervention does not stop our RMOs being treated differently, then we will escalate the situation and ask for help from national or provincial Indigenous organizations that are mandated to fight discrimination against Indigenous Peoples and organizations.
There are options available to Indigenous organizations who face discrimination. At national level, for health related matters we can seek help from Indigenous Canada Health, a division of Indigenous Affairs. If it is general non health matters we can ask for help from the Assembly of First Nations in Canada. There are also other provincial organizations that we can approach to right a wrong, depending on what the exact situation is.
There is always help available. Registered Manual Osteopaths are not alone. We are here with you and we do our best to help you. But if we cannot then we will seek help on your behalf. We will not give up until the discrimination stops.
If you face discrimination of any kind, please email CRMO at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will contact you right away.
