You'll be part of B.C.’s plan to ensure the health care system is prepared to care for British Columbians through any emergency.

Inquiry, Discipline, and Monitoring updates
BCCNM publishes a variety of professional conduct notices on its website. These notices include consent agreements, Discipline Committee and Inquiry Committee notices, and Inquiry and Discipline hearing notices. While all of these notices are public information, only exceptional outcomes (i.e., Inquiry Committee order, Discipline order, hearing outcome) and circumstances (i.e., discipline hearing) are highlighted in registrant newsletters.
BCCNM's office will be closed on Monday, Aug. 7 for B.C. Day. We will reopen at 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 8.
