Travelling Abroad

We certify your physician's registration with the CPSO on foreign embassy medical forms, if your travel requires it.

To obtain certification: 

  • Submit completed, original forms, including the physician's original signature. 
    • Ensure the form clearly shows the physician's full name, signature and CPSO number. Lab results alone are not sufficient.
  • Attach an acceptable translation if the form is in a language other than English or French.
  • Enclose a self-addressed “Xpresspost” Canada Post pre-paid envelope to expedite return delivery and enable tracking.
  • Mail or courier the forms to Registration & Membership Services.
    • Mailing address:
      College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario
      80 College Street, Toronto, ON M5G 2E2
      Attention: Registration & Membership Services

Once received, we process the request in approximately three to five business days and send the certified forms back to you by mail, using the provided Xpresspost envelope. Please note: there may be additional delays due to delivery services.

If you have any questions or need assistance, please email Membership Services staff, or call 416-967-2673 or 1-800-268-7096, ext. 673.
