OOHNA Membership



While you are providing on-the-job health care services for your company, OOHNA is on the job providing professional support for YOU. Since 1971, OOHNA has been the professional organization for registered nurses who provide occupational health care for Ontario’s workers. We began as an affiliation of local groups of occupational health nurses, and in 1973 we formally incorporated as a not-for-profit organization. From the beginning, our association has been run entirely by and for the people it serves. Today, we proudly represent the vast majority of registered nurses who work in the occupational health field in Ontario.

You qualify for membership in OOHNA if you are a Nurse holding a current license and are practicing in a Canadian province or territory.
