Medical Liability Protection (MLP) Reimbursement Program

Welcome to the Medical Liability Protection Reimbursement Program web pages.

The Government of Ontario understands that professional liability protection is a necessary part of practicing medicine. Enabling physicians to access adequate medical liability protection allows Ontario to remain competitive in recruiting and retaining physicians in Ontario.

Ensuring that physicians have access to a medical liability protection program also means that there is adequate compensation available to patients who are harmed by medical negligence. Furthermore, the College of Physician and Surgeons of Ontario (CPSO) mandates medical liability protection as a condition of licensing physicians.

Representatives from the Ministry of Health (MOH), the Canadian Medical Protective Association (CMPA) and the Ontario Medical Association (OMA) work together to assure continued availability of professional liability protection for Ontario physicians at a reasonable cost.

The MOH MLP Reimbursement Program provides a partial reimbursement to physicians that meet program deadlines and eligibility requirements.

Prior year reimbursements are also available to physicians, retroactive up to ten years.
