Information for Physician Assistants

More details coming soon!

We’re still working on all the details to bring your Physician Assistant (PA) profession under CPSA regulation, starting April 1, 2021.

Watch this page for updates—we’ll also connect with you directly as more information becomes available.

Until then, you may be interested in the following information. We also encourage you to browse our entire website to learn about CPSA and our programs and services.

"Thank you for bringing your unique skills and expertise to help care for Alberta patients."

- Dr. Scott McLeod, CPSA Registrar

Standards of Practice

CPSA’s Standards of Practice are the minimum standards of behaviour and conduct we will expect from all physicians and physician assistants practising in Alberta. When we develop or update standards, you will have the opportunity to provide feedback via our consultation process.

Like physicians, you are responsible for ensuring you understand our standards, and how to meet them in your practice.
We currently have over 40 standards of practice.
