Council representation

**To ensure appropriate representation across all specialities in medicine, surgery, and general practice, members seeking election must practice in one of the following two Divisions:

  • Division A - Certification from CFPC, or CMQ (Specialists in Family Medicine), or physicians without CFPC or RCPSC certification
