Our Mandate

We have a mission to serve the public interest in Ontario’s health system, ensuring patients receive quality care from fully trained, highly competent, deeply compassionate, and ethically guided doctors. If you want to help CPSO fulfill this mandate, please consider applying for one of our career opportunities.

If you’re the kind of person who thrives in a dynamic workplace that is always evolving, we may very well be the employer for you.

The Fun Factor

Illustration of people having fun togetherYes, we play a very important role in Ontario’s health-care system, but we also have a blast fulfilling it. From an annual cake auction that gets very competitive to an annual raffle with truly excellent prizes, from a “working from home” video contest during the pandemic to a robust calendar of staff events when we’re all back together — we know how to have fun! Best of all, our staff activities help raise money for those in need in the communities where we live and work.



People collaborating around a tableCPSO is committed to being an accessible, diverse, equitable and inclusive workplace where the rights of all individuals and groups are protected and all individuals feel safe, respected, empowered, and celebrated.

If you require an accommodation at any stage of the recruitment process, we invite you to notify the Human Resources Department at CPSO.
