CMPA Council elections
The CMPA is governed by an elected council of 30 practising physicians representing 10 geographical areas across Canada. Each year elections are held for positions on council. All CMPA members may seek election to council on the basis of their province/territory of work (geographical area) and their type of practice (generalist or specialist divisions).
The council election process, including how candidates are nominated, is governed by Article 4 of the CMPA By-law.
