The Canadian Paediatric Society (CPS) is the medical trade association for Canadian paediatricians. The CPS head office is located at 100-2305 St. Laurent Blvd., Ottawa, ON, Canada K1G 4J8.

The CPS is governed by an elected Board of Directors representing each province and territory.

The CPS publishes Paediatrics & Child Health, Canada's only paediatrics journal.

The CPS publishes policy statements on various matters relating to paediatric health and well-being. It has published three major statements on male circumcision.

Issues with the 2016 circumcision position statement

The 2015 statement clearly was heavily influenced by the now thoroughly discredited and expired (2017) American Academy of Pediatrics 2012 Circumcision Policy Statement. Furthermore, it bizarrely includes a reference to a paper on urinary tract infection by circumcision promoters Brian J. Morris and Thomas E. Wiswell.

The statement touts circumcision to prevent HIV infection, however a massive population study in Canada found that circumcision status has no effect on prevention of HIV infection.[1]

The statement seems designed to promote non-therapeutic unnecessary child circumcision in Canada in violation of the child's Section 7 rights under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Circumcision assaults the person of the child by excising functional tissue. The CPS seems unwilling to recognise and protect the legal rights of its child patients.
