Edmonton, AB – After a previous finding of unprofessional conduct for failing to respond to CPSA or complete mandatory training, Dr. Ali Nsair was sanctioned by a CPSA Hearing Tribunal.

Dr. Nsair was found guilty of failing to meet his obligations as a physician by not completing a mandatory training module on Patient Relations (required by all physicians in Alberta under the Health Professions Act), and not responding to multiple communications from CPSA about investigations into his conduct.

Dr. Nsair did not attend the hearing or provide the Hearing Tribunal with a written submission on sanction. The Tribunal accepted a sanction submission from CPSA’s Complaints Director and ordered Dr. Nsair to receive a reprimand, pay a fine of $5,000 and be responsible for the full cost of the investigation and hearing, to a maximum of $20,000.

Dr. Nsair is not currently in practice, his permit was cancelled in 2022 for failure to complete his CPSA annual renewal or pay annual registration fees.
