 CMPA Advisory
(7/13/2022)
 
   
CMPA Extent of Assistance for Abortions Provided to Non-Residents
In the letter linked below, the CMPA responds to questions from physicians on the medico-legal implications of physicians in Canada providing abortion
services to patients who are not residents of Canada.
CMPA Extent of Assistance for Abortions Provided to Non-Residents

CPSS statement:

In Saskatchewan physicians must have insurance to maintain licensure.

  • The CMPA has advised that it will only provide assistance for physicians performing abortions on US patients in limited circumstances;
  • The CPSS requires physicians to have liability protection in order to practice medicine in Saskatchewan;
  • Physicians who intend to provide abortions on US patients must therefore make additional insurance arrangements for coverage when providing abortions on US patients.

Shortage of Specialty Infant Formula
A Message from the Government of Saskatchewan

As you may know, there is a shortage of specialty infant formula following the shutdown of Abbott Nutrition’s U.S.-based facility earlier this year. The facility has re-opened with a focus on producing specialty infant formula and it is anticipated that supply will gradually become available over the coming months. Please find attached additional information pertaining to the national and provincial mitigation planning underway, a local contact for dietician support and a decision tree for shortage of hypoallergenic formulas.  For more information, see:
