Lobby Day

In April 2015, the Fédération médicale étudiante du Québec (FMEQ) organized its very first edition of the Lobby Day on which medical students from each faculty were convened to Parliament Hill in Quebec City. There, they were able to discuss with Parliament members, Deputies as well as Ministers, on the subject of social issues concerning both the general public and the province’s medical student population alike.

For the FMEQ, lobbying isn’t only a matter of influencing legislative measures: it is also a matter of equity in terms of health care services, the preservation of vital functions, and taking concrete steps to promote the health of every single Quebec resident. 

This year, yours student associations choose these two majors issues:

  1. Promoting family medecine
  2. Climate changes and its impacts on health
