AMO Watchfile logo

Welcome to the AMO WatchFile - our tool to provide you with the information you really want, quickly and consistently each week.

Each AMO WatchFile begins with a short summary that your handheld device will love. It will be followed by information and links organized by simple headings that make sense - Provincial matters, Federal matters, conference information, best practices - the information you want is always just one click away. With one quick scan you can get a good sense of what's happening and if you want more, it's at your fingertips, whether it is a new AMO policy paper or a new LAS program

We don't stop there. When appropriate, the WatchFile will let you know what to watch for in the week ahead, and provide insightful guest columns. Send the WatchFile team an email to subscribe.
