Even if you will not practise next year, we still need you to complete your 2022 Renewal Information Form (RIF) to ensure our records are up-to-date.

What you need to do:

  • Before you can access your Renewal Information Form (RIF), you will need to complete the required Patient Relations: Part 2 training. Training is available via CPSA’s Physician Portal.
  • Once this training is complete, you will see an active link to your Renewal Information Form (RIF).
  • Fill in the first question regarding your status for 2022. When you indicate you are retiring or withdrawing from practice:
    • Your form will be much shorter, only asking for necessary contact information
    • You will not have to make payment at the end of the form
    • We will not issue you a practice permit

Please make sure you give your patients ample notice and ensure there is follow up on any outstanding investigations.
