The pandemic has been challenging for all Canadians and divided our society in unprecedented ways. With vaccine hesitancy and misinformation playing a role throughout, CPSO’s vision of “Trusted Doctors Providing Great Care” was put to the ultimate test. In spite of these challenges, 2021 was a year in which much was accomplished — achievements captured in our Annual Report — as we maintained our commitment to continue to collaborate with Ontario physicians, health partners and government to ensure physicians can deliver the best possible care.

The pandemic touches many aspects of our Annual Report this year.

In the CPSO’s 2014 year, we furthered the emphasis on patient-centred interactions with changes in the Professional Obligations and Human Rights policy; looked for new ways to provide information about physicians and the process of medical regulation to the public; launched a process of reassessing our assessments to provide physicians with new tools and insights to deliver even higher quality care; and continued our joint effort with Cancer Care Ontario to develop a provincial quality management program.
