Canadian Medical Protective Association

The CMPA is a mutual medical defence organization for Canadian physicians.

We protect the professional integrity of physicians and promote safe medical care in Canada. We are not an insurance company.

Some members are reporting that emails from the CMPA are being marked as spam and going directly into their junk/spam folders. We are working to resolve the issue. In the meantime, please check your junk/spam folder and mark the emails as “not junk/spam.”
