The proposed bylaw, which would charge 25% of the annual fee “to those members who apply to modify the terms, conditions or limitations of their certificate of registration imposed as a result of a registration proceeding” should be further clarified. Most important, in my view, is the condition for which the privileges were varied. Such a fee may be seen as a further penalty on the original “offense” if that were the case. Since such cases represent 1% only of the membership, we are looking at a heavier burden on those whose earning capacity may have been restricted whereas to our College, it would not make much difference in terms of revenue. I would favour a kinder approach if I understand the problem correctly.
With reference to posting members’ offences… I feel everyone deserves a chance to renew themselves. The stresses and obligations of our profession may be heavy at times and we cannot even begin to understand the causes, mechanisms, reasons of what led to an infraction. I would be more comfortable if postings would begin if the offender were a “repeat offender”. In other, post the terms of the delinquency on the second offense. It would not be fair that a single sin would appear for a lifetime. It would be tantamount to branding a man on the forehead!
Those are my views! I am in favour of transparency but not of schadenfreude. Thank you for the opportunity to express my view!
CPSO, RE CONSIDERATION ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP MODIFICATION:
25 % of the equivalent of the annual membership is reasonable. Ideally, I would like to see a nominal fee of $ 100.00 for those of us who have paid for many years and would like to maintain an honorary status.
I have continued to pay annual fees, despite the fact that I retired in 2001 and was not in clinical practice and submitting OHIP bills. I have requested a reduction in license fee on 3 occasions without consideration.
Thank you for your consideration
I just read the Dialogue section on the By-law amendment to charge 25%of annual fee for modify/removal of terms, conditions or limitations imposed by the certificate of registration I believe the fee is needed to support the work that goes into this high volume process However I think the fee is unreasonably high and suggest a much lower $100
Although the fees associated with changes are high I do not think that 25% of the annual fee is reasonable. That is a lot of money to spend to go off on maternity/sick/mandatory leave. Pick a dollar amount and stick with it.$100 is reasonable for processing.
The higher the fee the less incentive to notify of changes. This does not help the public or their physicians.
Another CPSO money grab.
It looks like the CPSO executive has too much free time.
Should be nominal. May be 100 dollars
I think we pay enough as is. If the physician already have paid the dues for that year I don’t think charging more is not correct. If the funds are low charge the complainants even 25 dollars , one you make money and two number of complaints will be low . That itself willnsave time and money
I believe that in some cases, a very simple and straightforward case of change in terms of a physician license is made to go through a very complex and cumbersome process involving the registration committee.
I suggest that there should be a mechanism to fast track relatively simple requests by member physicians and those approvals should not have to wait upto 3-6 months for the next registration committee meeting.
Simplifying the process could reduce the college expenses. This can reduce the burden being transferred to the member physicians who are being asked to pay an additional fees.
I believe that this service should be part of the annual membership fees.

In favor. The compelling argument is that the costs to the College to process these requests exceeds the revenue from registration fees. I favor this amendment over the alternative of a general increase in dues for all members.
