Hearing Decisions, Media Release | Posted December 20, 2022

Edmonton, AB – Calgary general practitioner Dr. Hasan Hafiz was sanctioned by a CPSA Hearing Tribunal after he was found guilty of unprofessional conduct.

Over a period of two years, Dr. Hafiz failed to respond to CPSA about a complaint and investigation into his conduct, and concerns with his medical practice.

Dr. Hafiz did not attend either the merits or sanctions hearing and has not been in practice since October 2020. After considering a sanction submission from CPSA’s Complaints Director, the Hearing Tribunal ordered the following:

  • Dr. Hafiz will receive a reprimand.
  • Before his practice permit can be reinstated, Dr. Hafiz must successfully complete a professionalism course and undergo a competence assessment at his own cost.
  • Upon reinstatement of his practice permit, Dr. Hafiz must engage and fully cooperate with CPSA’s Continuing Competence department and any remedial directions provided to him, at his own cost.
  • Dr. Hafiz is responsible for the full costs of the investigation and hearing to a maximum of $10,000, payable within 24 months of being served with a copy of the Hearing Tribunal’s decision.
