  2. Why Join ECMS

We Invite You to Join!

As you may already know, the ECMS is the largest Society in Ontario based on its collegial and friendly atmosphere. The Essex County Medical Society has won the award for the Best Society in Ontario for 2016/2017. This past year, we have had many new members join and the membership has attended various All-Age events such as:

An Attempt at Curling, a Bowling Night, A Touch of Table Tennis, a "Meet with Santa" Brunch, and an upcoming WFCU Cirque show 'Crystal', as well as the ECMS Family Barbeque Picnic Lunch Buffet.

The #1 compliment of the ECMS membership has been the opportunity to socialize with the entire spectrum of MD colleagues as well as family members in an relaxed environment.
