The Council Award is presented at each meeting of Council to honour outstanding Ontario doctors who have demonstrated excellence and come closest to meeting society's vision of an "ideal physician".

Call for Nominations

The CPSO is now accepting nominations for the 2020 Council Award. 

The criteria for selecting a recipient for the Council Award are based on eight physician roles identified by Educating Future Physicians of Ontario. The selection criteria are outlined in the nomination form.

Through the award, the College honours Ontario physicians who are outstanding in each of these roles, recognizing that individual physicians will demonstrate more extensive expertise in some roles than in others. Four awards are presented each year, one in each of the following categories: Academic Specialty, Community Specialty, Academic Family Practice and Community Family Practice.

If you know of a physician who meets the selection criteria, please nominate him or her. The deadline for receipt of nominations for the 2020 Award is Monday, September 30, 2019 at 5 p.m.

For further information, please contact the Communications Department at 416-967-2600 or 1-800-268-7096, ext. 257, or
