About Us
The Medical Society of PEI (MSPEI) is a Division of the Canadian Medical Association (CMA). MSPEI membership is conjoint with the CMA. MSPEI’s approximately 400 members include practicing and retired physicians, medical residents and students. Established in 1855, MSPEI is the second-oldest medical association in Canada.
Strategic direction
A Board of Directors provides overall strategic direction and governs the Society. The Board is comprised of a diverse group of physicians elected by the membership.
What does the Medical Society do?
The Medical Society’s mission is to provide leadership, representation, and support for PEI physicians to enable a high level of professional satisfaction – for the sake of delivering and sustaining a high standard of healthcare. The Medical Society of PEI is the sole bargaining agent for doctors in PEI. Doctors are paid according to the terms negotiated within the Master Agreement – a contract between Health PEI and the Medical Society.

The Medical Society of PEI does not have disciplinary powers over doctors. The College of Physicians and Surgeons Prince Edward Island is the professional body responsible for licensing doctors and regulating the province’s medical profession.
