All physicians wishing to obtain the authorization of the Collège des médecins du Québec (Collège) to practice the profession within a joint-stock company or a limited liability partnership must, in order to know their legal obligations, first become familiar with the following documentation:
It should be noted that all the conditions and requirements provided in the Regulation as well as the ethical obligations provided in the Code of ethics of physicians must be complied with at all times. Failure to do so can result in the immediate loss of the right to practice the profession within a partnership or company.
All physicians must also, before sending the Collège their request for authorization, incorporate their company or register their partnership and obtain a Québec enterprise number (NEQ). All corporations (whether incorporated provincially, federally or outside Québec) must obtain a NEQ from the Registraire des entreprises du Québec. It is highly recommended that a professional be consulted for the incorporation process.
There are five steps to follow when applying for authorization. You must complete the declaration and attach the required documents before sending them all to the address given in step 5.
Physicians who already practice within a company or partnership must be sure to update their file with the Collège.
