Here it is in the words of Kimberley Ross of the RCPSC:
"It is not necessary to have the event reviewed with an Accredited CPD Provider since this activity meets our guidelines for recognition: 1) it was co-developed with a physician organization and 2) has been assigned AMA PRA Category 1 credits™. I was recommending that accreditation applies to the entire process from the pre event preparation to the full day interactive event and the exam with a maximum of 30 hours assigned for the activity. Canadian physicians can then choose to record the actual number of hours they spent on this group learning activity under Section 1 of the Maintenance of Certification program. It is not the enduring materials that are eligible for accreditation but the full program."
