Membership

The CPSO’s membership year runs from June 1 to May 31. A physician becomes a member of the College when issued a certificate of registration authorizing you to practice medicine in Ontario. You retain your certificate by fully completing the online form and submitting payment annually. Your new membership certificate and annual fee receipt is available in the members’ portal on the College’s website.

Every member is responsible for ensuring the CPSO has your current mailing and email addresses, and updating your online profile with any changes within 30 days. 

Annual Membership Fee

The 2019 annual membership fee is $1,725. No reductions are permitted for any reason.

Members who fail to submit their fee payment by the due date are subject to a late submission penalty of 25% of the full annual fee. 

Suspension

A member may receive a notice of intention to suspend your certificate of registration in 60 days if you fail to complete the online renewal form or submit the fee payment. 

If a member’s certificate of registration is suspended, the Registrar will notify the member by mail at which time their registration expires and the former member is no longer authorized to practice medicine in Ontario.

In addition:

  • We add a permanent notation of suspension to the physician’s record and public profile.
  • We circulate a list containing the names of all suspended physicians to Ontario hospitals and publish it in Dialogue.

If a suspended physician wishes to resume practice in Ontario, they must submit an application for a new certificate of registration, pay all applicable fees, and meet all registration requirements in force at the time of application.
