Temporary emergency registration (TER) is available for the sole purpose of enabling eligible individuals to assist during a declared emergency. Temporary emergency registrants can assist in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic by:
Temporary Emergency Registration is granted for periods of 180 days and will be automatically extended as long as the public health emergency remains in effect. BCCNM will work with government, the health authorities and other stakeholders to determine when to end temporary emergency registration. When BCCNM announces that TER is repealed, the registration of individuals holding TER will expire 15 days following the announcement. Current TERs will be communicated with directly to inform them of their updated registration expiry date.
