Important Mainpro+® information for 2023


Dear CFPC members and Mainpro+® participants,

We would like to take this opportunity to provide you with some important Mainpro+ updates for 2023.

CPD Annual Report

Want to know how your peers are earning continuing professional development (CPD) credits? We’ve analyzed Mainpro+ data to report the most popular types of activities, the uptake of the College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC) programs, and more to provide a snapshot of what Mainpro+ participants across the country are doing.

Annual Cycle Requirements

As a reminder, the current cycle year runs from July 1, 2023, to June 30, 2024. During this time, all Mainpro+ participants must earn and report 25 credits in any combination of certified or non-certified activities. Tip: You can report hours spent on non-certified activities such as journal reading, teaching, or research as a bulk entry.

Five-Year and Two-Year Cycle Requirements

Mainpro+ participants who are in a five-year cycle must earn and report 250 credits, with at least 125 coming from certified activities.

Mainpro+ participants who are in a two-year remedial cycle are expected to earn and report 100 credits, with at least 50 coming from certified activities. During a remedial cycle, all certified Mainpro+ entries must include documentation (such as a certificate of attendance). These requirements did not change as a result of the cycle extensions.

Are you looking to earn certified credits? Consider completing a Linking Learning exercise or using the Professional Learning Plan (PLP) tool to claim more credits.


We are here to help and to answer all your Mainpro+ questions. Our Mainpro+ coordinators are available to assist you in both English and French via phone, chat, or email Monday to Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (ET).
