Tips to Get Ready for 2020 Practice Permit Renewal

CPSA | Posted September 4, 2019
  • Make sure we have your unique email address – one that you check regularly. This is how you’ll receive renewal notices. You also need a unique email to complete your Renewal Information Form (RIF). Update your email in the Physician Portal or notify the College at
  • Set up a personal reminder. While CPSA sends courtesy email reminders, these can be missed, bounced back or sent to your junk mail. Even if you don’t see the email notice, you’re still responsible to renew by Dec. 31.
  • Add to your email contacts. If we are on your list of allowed senders, CPSA notifications will not end up in your junk mail.
  • Renew before December holidays. If you’re planning a vacation or office closure, make early renewal part of your plan.
  • Don’t forget to renew your professional corporation. PC renewal is a separate process, with a separate form and fee payment. For PCs with multiple shareholders, only the designated physician will see the PC renewal information. Once completed, the PC permit and receipt will be posted to the practice profile of ALL shareholders.
  • Sign up for the Pre-Authorized Payment (PAP) Plan. You’ll still have to submit your RIF, but we’ll automatically withdraw your fees in early December. Physicians can also pay online by credit card. If you’re mailing a cheque, we need to receive it by Dec. 31. Mail it in early.
