The CPSO is the licensing body for Ontario and it is your responsibility to ensure that you apply for an Educational Certificate of Registration (license). If you do not receive an application package for your Certificate of Registration for Postgraduate Education by April 1, you should contact the CPSO immediately. 

For more information on the application process visit the CPSO website. You may also call the CPSO directly at 416-967-2617 or 1-800-268-7096 for further information.

If you do not receive the certificate before the starting date of your appointment, you must contact the CPSO Registration Department to confirm that you are registered.  You cannot begin your program without a CPSO Postgraduate Education Certificate.
