Renew Your Medical Corporation Permit

The medical director of your medical corporation MUST renew the Medical Corporation Permit every year. Permits are valid from January through December. We will email you a renewal notice in late October.

You will know an email is from us if you see registration@cpsns.ns.ca in the sender field. Please add this address to your safe senders list.

We recommend that you begin the renewal process in November. If you are practising medicine, you will have to renew your medical licence at the same time.

If you do NOT renew your permit by December 31, it will expire and you will NOT be able to practise medicine under that corporation. Physicians whose practice income flows through the corporation could suffer tax consequences if the Medical Corporation Permit expires.

Note: Renewal of your medical corporation permit is a separate process from your licence renewal.

It is best to renew your medical corporation permit on a Windows laptop or desktop computer as the renewal page was developed for Windows Internet Explorer. It may not work as well with other internet browsers.
