 CMPA Advisory
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.
