OSLA's Response: 

OSLA is disappointed by this announcement. We know that this fund was valued by many members and valuable in supporting professional development that is important to supporting quality health care in Ontario. OSLA will continue to advocate and work on future initiatives with the government and with other health care partners impacted by this decision.
