What we do

Quick links


At the CMPA, we are committed to service excellence in all that we do — for our members and for Canadian healthcare. This includes:

  • advice and assistance when medical-legal issues arise from a member’s medical professional work in Canada
  • compensation to patients proven to have been harmed by negligent care
  • professional development programs and resources that help physicians provide safe care, manage risk, and be knowledgeable about their obligations
  • public policy, submissions, and responses relating to medical-legal matters that impact physicians’ practice and the Canadian medical liability system


The CMPA’s subsidiary, Saegis, offers specialized programs and practice management solutions for physicians, healthcare professionals, and institutions, which extend beyond the CMPA’s offerings.
