Frequently asked questions
Can the College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC) send out a survey for me?
Regrettably, the CFPC is not able to provide access to members’ information to anyone outside the organization. Doing so contravenes the Personal Information and Protection of Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) guidelines that the College follows.
The CFPC is also not permitted to send out any surveys or invitations by email on behalf of third parties. There are other means of accessing family physicians in Canada, including the use of Scott’s Directories.
Can the CFPC conduct a literature review for me?
CFPC members are entitled to one literature search per year. Please contact the CFPC.
How do I find a research mentor?
Please contact the CFPC and staff will connect you to a mentor in your region.
What type of research grants and awards are available to me and how do I apply?
The CFPC offers the Janus Research Grant. A full description for each award offered through the CFPC, including value and eligibility, is available at https://fafm.cfpc.ca/. Applications for grants and awards are submitted online through an electronic application form. The applications are handled through the Foundation for Advancing Family Medicine (FAFM), through its Honors and Awards Committee. If you have any questions about grants, awards, the application/nomination process, or technical concerns, please contact email@example.com.
