Public Consultations

CPSM conducts formal consultations prior to making changes to the following:

  • Bylaws
  • Standards of Practice
  • Code of Ethics and Professionalism
  • Regulations
  • And Practice Directions (as determined by Council)

CPSM seeks input from the public, other interested groups, registrants, the Manitoba Government, Doctors Manitoba, CMPA, other regulated health professions in Manitoba, the University of Manitoba faculty of medicine, and other stakeholders as applicable to the topic under consideration.

All bylaw amendments must be voted upon and passed by the CPSM members at the Annual General Meeting in June.

Hearing and receiving input from diverse professional opinions from the public, registrants, regulated health professions, and other stakeholders creates standards that are stronger, comprehensive, and better reflect best practices for patient safety, while balancing public concerns. 

Consultations are made available to the public.


Amending Regulations to Streamline Registration for Qualified Internationally Trained Physicians

A vital role of CPSM is to ensure registrants are properly qualified to practice medicine safely and competently in Manitoba. The registration process established in the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Manitoba General Regulation M.R. 163/2018 is complicated.


CPSM is working with Government to amend the Regulation this summer to reduce unnecessary steps and improve efficiency to ensure the expeditious full licensing of qualified internationally trained physicians.


We invite CPSM registrations, stakeholders and the public to review the proposed amendments and submit your feedback.
