​​Temporary Emergency Registration is being extended again to all those individuals in good standing as noted on the BCCNM website last month. The extension will occur in late June 2023 and will show on the online register as a future status (July 1, 2023, to Dec. 31, 2023).

​​​BCCM will also be working directly with temporary emergency registrants who wish to continue practising in British Columbia after Dec. 31, 2023. Options available will depend on the registrants’ individual circumstances and more information will be shared with impacted registrants in the coming months. ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
