Annual Renewal of the Certificate of Authorization issued by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario (CPSO) for Medicine Professional Corporations in Ontario

by Peter Cusimano
Lawyer - Barrister & Solicitor

If you are doctor in Ontario who operates under a medicine professional corporation, you must renew your Certificate of Authorization every year with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario (CPSO) in order to maintain the Certificate of Authorization.

The renewal process requires the following steps be completed:
  1. completion of the application form for annual renewal (Form 3 from the CPSO)
  2. completion of the Statutory Declaration (Form 4). This must be signed in front of a lawyer or notary public
  3. obtaining a Certificate of Status for your corporation from the Ontario government
  4. payment of the renewal fee to the CPSO (usually by way of cheque from the corporation)
It is recommended that your consult with a lawyer to help you complete the steps (especially step 2), to obtain the Certificate of Status, and to ensure the documents are properly completed.

I deal with many doctors on a regular basis as my clients, helping them with the legal aspects of their medical practice. If you are in the greater Toronto area, as part of my service I will attend at your office if it is more convenient for you in order to complete the renewal steps.

To get started, contact me.
