The Vision of the Canadian Association of Medical Radiation Technologists
As medical radiation technologists, we are essential, caring contributors to the healthcare team for Canadians. In an environment of rapid technological change and innovation, we remain at the leading edge of practice as we establish and expand the evidence base of our profession. We are recognized within the health system and the wider community as an authoritative voice in medical imaging and radiation therapies, and engage internationally as leaders in the profession.

In pursuing its vision, the Canadian Association of Medical Radiation Technologists (CAMRT) embraces the following core values in order to support its members, contribute to the health system and further the health of Canadians:
- accountability, adaptability, transparency and excellence in the conduct of its affairs; and,
- trust, fairness, and integrity in the relations among members, staff and with stakeholders.
In serving its communities, the CAMRT respects the diversity of its members and stakeholders. The CAMRT recognizes and celebrates the contributions of its members and staff.
Mission of the Canadian Association of Medical Radiation Technologists
The Canadian Association of Medical Radiation Technologists (CAMRT) serves and supports its members to provide patients the highest quality of medical imaging and radiation therapy care. CAMRT ensures that all medical radiation technologists (MRTs) are certified as having the knowledge, skills, and judgment to enter practice. Through the development of services and tools, it helps MRTs continue to practice safely and effectively in a rapidly evolving field. As the national voice of the profession, the CAMRT is engaged internationally and promotes the effective contribution of MRTs in Canadian health system discussions and decisions.
Inclusion and Diversity
“Diversity is not about how we differ. Diversity is about embracing one another's uniqueness." - Ola Joseph
In 2010, CAMRT launched an Inclusion and Diversity initiative designed to celebrate the differences within the membership, and to encourage members to think about the importance of culture, religion, politics, sexual orientation, ethnicity, language and even age. The initiative has proceeded under the leadership of a champion, Past-president Fiona Mitchell.
In November 2012, the CAMRT Board of Directors proudly approved a statement affirming The Focus on Inclusion and Diversity at CAMRT. Read it here.
