When Annual Renewal opens on April 11th, physicians will complete their renewal in the Member Portal, which replaced the old member portal in September 2020.

Please visit the Member Portal Resources page to see a list of commonly asked questions about using the Member Portal to complete annual renewal.

Membership

A physician becomes a member of the College when issued a certificate of registration authorizing you to practice medicine in Ontario. In order to avoid the suspension and expiry of your certificate of registration, you are required to complete the online survey and submit payment annually. Your new membership card and annual fee receipt is available in the Member Portal on the College’s website.

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

Annual Membership Fee

The 2022 annual membership fee is $1,725. This is the fourth consecutive year we have not raised fees and instead have been able to accommodate inflationary increases through internal efficiencies. Ontario’s fees remain among the lowest in Canada.

MRA 2021 2022
Alberta $2,150 $1,792
PEI $1,950 $2,125
Nova Scotia $1,950 $1,950
Saskatchewan $1,880 N/A
NFLD & Labrador $1,850 $1,850
Manitoba N/A $1,890
Ontario $1,725 $1,725
British Columbia $1,715 $1,725
Quebec $1,660 $1,660
New Brunswick $600 $600

 

In 2020, we also removed service fees on the following items to reduce overall membership costs:

  • Certificates of Professional Conduct
  • Embassy Letters
  • Use of College Seal
  • Legal Name Change
  • Imaging Revenue
  • Data Sharing Cost Recovery
  • Return Cheque Admin. Charges

Suspension

If you fail to complete the online renewal form or submit the fee payment in the portal, you will receive a notice of intention to suspend your certificate of registration in 60 days.

If your certificate of registration is to be suspended, the Registrar will notify you by mail.  Immediately upon suspension, your certificate of registration expires and your authority to practice medicine in Ontario ceases.

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.

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