A home for paediatricians. A voice for children and youth.


All first-year paediatric residents in Canada receive complimentary membership in the Canadian Paediatric Society, and many Canadian paediatric residency programs sponsor membership for their R2-R4 residents.

Some of the benefits of resident membership include:

Community and networking



Video series: Voices from the Field

In this video series, CPS members from across Canada talk about why they chose community paediatrics, what day-to-day practice is like, and where they see the field going.

Resident Advocacy

Advocacy is one of the key components of medical education, as outlined in CanMEDs.

The Residents Section’s National Resident Advocacy Project gives residents hands on experience in the Health Advocate role and helps raise awareness about critical child and youth health issues.

Through the Paediatric Resident Advocacy Grant, the Healthy Generations foundation offers up to $10,000 to support paediatric residents develop, plan and implement a community-based research or advocacy project in child and youth health.
