Tips for candidates

  • CPSA Councillors do not represent a constituency like AMA representatives. As a Councillor, you will help ensure CPSA fulfills its role to protect Albertans.
  • Being a Councillor is a significant time commitment, including reviewing materials and attending meetings, plus additional committee work.
  • Sitting on CPSA Council is an opportunity to share your unique views as a practising physician on how CPSA can meet its responsibility to regulate medical practice in Alberta.
  • The privilege of profession-led regulation is fundamental to our profession. The work of Council is essential, and must be done well to maintain trust with patients and our colleagues.
