In light of the current COVID-19 situation, the CPSO is taking steps to ensure that we are not putting staff and others at greater risk than necessary. Although the majority of our operations are proceeding as normal, we are eliminating in-person meetings and encouraging our staff to work remotely where possible.
As a result, we are temporarily rescheduling in-person hearings. Protecting the public is a core function of the CPSO, and all other investigative and disciplinary functions will continue as usual. Should the CPSO become aware of any risks to public safety, we will continue to carry out our duty and take action to protect the public. Similarly, the CPSO will continue accepting and investigating concerns from the public.
We will be monitoring the situation closely and will work to minimize any disruptions. We will continue updating our website regularly and we encourage you to check our schedule regularly in order to confirm the status of specific hearings.
All hearings are held at the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario, 80 College Street, Toronto, and commence at 9 a.m. in the first floor hearing chamber, unless otherwise stated. The physician’s current practice location as indicated on the Public Register is noted. This schedule is subject to change. If you plan to attend, or for further information, please contact Public Advisory Services by email or by telephone at 416-967-2603.
Directions to the College are available on the Contact page.
