Need College Data?

Print page icon

CPSO updated its data sharing policies to streamline requests. The College will consider requests for data from a standardized data set of active (registered) physicians by requestors seeking the information to assist in continuity of care, health resource planning and management. This means that research and commercial requests will not be eligible.

You can learn more about this update, the information we share and your eligibility in our FAQ.

To request data, please complete and submit our information request form.
