Can Era

Welcome to CanERA

The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, the College of Family Physicians of Canada, and the Collège des médecins du Québec maintain national standards for the evaluation and accreditation of Canadian postgraduate medical training programs across Canada’s 17 medical schools. Together they form the Canadian Residency Accreditation Consortium (CanRAC).

In collaboration with residency accreditation stakeholders, CanRAC has created a blueprint for CanERA – Canadian Excellence in Residency Accreditation. CanERA is a 21st century accreditation system that incorporates and innovates on global best practices in accreditation, representing a methodological, dynamic and multi-faceted approach to the evaluation of residency programs and institutions.
