About the SOGC
The SOGC is one of Canada’s oldest national specialty organizations. Established in 1944, the Society’s mission is to promote excellence in the practice of obstetrics and gynaecology and to advance the health of women through leadership, advocacy, collaboration, and education.
The SOGC has grown to over 4,000 members, comprised of obstetricians, gynaecologists, family physicians, nurses, midwives, and allied health professionals working in the field of women's sexual and reproductive health.
The Association of Academic Professionals in Obstetrics and Gynaecology (APOG) was officially integrated with the SOGC in January 2018, strengthening and unifying the voices of both organizations in their common goal to improve women’s health in Canada through research and education.
