Thank you for your interest in applying for CPD accreditation.

The College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC) and the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC) grants the privilege to the Office of Continuing Professional Development (OCPD) of providing accreditation to courses developed by or co-developed with the CPD office.

In addition, the CFPC requires that, for these programs, the university offices must have “significant input into the planning, organization, development and implementation and ensure that they meet the criteria for MainPro+ certification.

Every year we process about 100 accreditation applications from medical organizations, departments and divisions, seeking to have their event accredited. We are ready to guide new organizations through the process or help more experienced developers in areas where they are trying to improve.

There are very specific criteria that we have to adhere to in accrediting an event, but at the same time, our goal is to help.

We want your events to be the best possible CPD that can be offered. If you have questions or run into difficulties with the application form or the process, we invite you to contact us for assistance and to use the resources, templates and guides provided.
