To obtain certification: 

  • Submit completed, original forms, including your original signature. 
    • Ensure the form clearly indicates certification of a physician’s registration status with their college is required, either by seal or letter. Lab results alone are not sufficient.
  • Attach an acceptable translation if the form is in a language other than English or French.
  • Submit the $40 fee per form requiring certification by money order or certified cheque payable to the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario.
  • Enclose a self-addressed “Xpresspost” Canada Post pre-paid envelope to expedite return delivery and enable tracking.
  • Mail or courier the forms to Membership Services.
    • Mailing address:
      College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario
      80 College Street, Toronto, ON M5G 2E2
      Attention: Membership Services

We process the request in approximately two business days and send the certified forms back to you by mail, using the provided Xpresspost envelope.

If you have any questions or need assistance, please email Membership Services staff, or call 416-967-2673 or 1-800-268-7096, ext. 673.
