CPSO does not rely on third parties to assess qualifications/credentials and does not use the application through Applications are submitted directly to CPSO through our Portal. We conduct assessment of all credentials in-house. This allows us to eliminate additional fees for applicants, provide a much quicker turnaround for document verification, and maintains our expertise as leaders in credential evaluation across Canada and worldwide.


Whether you are a new physician looking to practise medicine for the first time or you’re an experienced doctor moving to Ontario from another jurisdiction, CPSO is the body that grants you your medical licence. All doctors must be a member of the CPSO to practise in this province.
