Complete the Declaration for authorization to practice the medical profession within a partnership or company, making sure that the information declared is accurate by consulting the articles of incorporation of the joint-stock company or the agreement creating the limited liability partnership.
Obtain a copy of the written confirmation from the competent authority attesting to the existence of the partnership or joint-stock company:
For a company or partnership constituted pursuant to a law of another Canadian province, you must attach, in addition to the Certificate of Attestation, a copy of any document attesting to the existence of the company or partnership issued by the province where it was constituted.
You must yourself contact your insurer, whether the Canadian Medical Protective Association (CMPA), a private insurer or another competent authority, to inform them that your will be practicing the medical profession within a partnership or company. The insurer will provide a written confirmation attesting that the company or partnership has professional liability coverage pursuant to Division III of the Regulation respecting the practice of the medical profession in a partnership or joint-stock company (liability umbrella insurance). This confirmation must be sent to the Collège only in the cases mentioned in Step 5.
Write a cheque payable to the Collège des médecins du Québec covering the fees due when the declaration is filed, i.e. $300 (taxes included) per physician member of the Collège who practices within the partnership or company. The source of the cheque doesn’t matter: it can come from the physicians concerned by the request, a company or partnership or any other third party.
Send the following documents to the Collège, to the attention of the Director of Legal Services, at:
1250, René-Lévesque Boulevard West
