We require all Ontario physicians to participate in a CPD program that meets requirements set by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC) or the College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC). You must also track your credits with a recognized organization.

The Continuing Professional Development FAQs address most commonly asked questions, including exceptional circumstances in which the CPSO determines compliance may not be feasible.

Approved CPD Tracking Organizations

We require all CPSO members to report their CPD activities to one of these three approved groups:

The RCPSC’s CPD Educators support MOC Program participants in understanding the program’s requirements. For further information or to contact a CPD Educator, visit the Royal College website.

The CFPC assists Mainpro+ participants in identifying CPD learning opportunities. For further information, visit the CFPC website or email them.
