Information for Physician Assistants

From the Registrar, Physician Assistants | Posted January 28, 2021

Alberta’s newest regulated healthcare professional

On April 1, 2021, Physician Assistants (PAs) will come under CPSA regulation. We’ve supported this move for years and welcome PAs as the newest regulated member of Alberta’s healthcare team.

We’re still working on all the details for this change. We will update this site or connect with PAs directly as more information becomes available.
