About the CMPA

Supporting physicians, patients, and the healthcare system

As an integral part of the multifaceted Canadian healthcare system, we support physicians, patients, and the healthcare system in numerous ways. The CMPA assists physicians with medico-legal issues, enhances patient safety, and compensates patients harmed by negligent care (fault in Québec).

The CMPA is governed by an elected Council of 31 practising physicians who, working together and with CMPA management, foster the long-term success of the Association. CMPA Council meets quarterly to foster the long-term success of the Association.
