The College’s Physicians and the Ontario Human Rights Code
policy is currently being reviewed. This policy sets out physicians' legal obligations under the Ontario Human Rights Code
) and the College's expectations that physicians will respect the fundamental rights of those who seek their medical services. You can view the current policy
along with information about the College's policy review process on the CPSO website
We are inviting all stakeholders, including members of the medical profession, the public, health system organizations and other health professionals to provide feedback on the current policy. Comments received during this preliminary consultation will assist the College in updating the policy. When a revised policy is developed, it will be recirculated for further comment before it is considered for final approval by Council.
This feedback will help to ensure that the policy reflects current practice issues, embodies the values and duties of medical professionalism, and is consistent with the College’s mandate to protect the public.
The following survey asks you a few short questions about the policy and will take approximately 10 minutes
to complete. Aggregate survey results and open ended feedback will be posted on our website at the close of the consultation process, in accordance with the College's posting guidelines
; however, the identity of all respondents will be kept confidential.
If you have any additional comments, you can submit those by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
or provide your feedback through our online discussion forum.
All of your comments will be carefully considered as we review the existing policy.
Thank you for your participation in this important initiative.
