Practitioner Registered in Another Canadian Jurisdiction

If you hold valid registration or licensure in another Canadian jurisdiction* as the equivalent of a full registrant in practising status, which is not subject to any practice limitations, restrictions or conditions in that jurisdiction that do not apply generally to registrants in British Columbia, then you are eligible to apply through reciprocity.

*Canadian registration / licensing authorities include:

The requirements for registration through reciprocity application are:

Reference Form for Reciprocity Application

All applicants applying through reciprocity are required to submit a Reference Form for Reciprocity Application from the originating regulatory body. The Reference Form for Reciprocity Application must be mailed directly to the College from the originating regulatory body. Please use the form below for this purpose.

CTCMA Jurisprudence Examination

All applicants are required to complete the Jurisprudence Examination. Please refer to the Jurisprudence Examination section for further details and instructions.

Standard First Aid and CPR-C Certifications

*As of July 6, 2023, full registrants are required to hold current and valid Standard First Aid with Level C cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR-C) certifications under the Bylaws Section 48(1)(d).  

The Quality Assurance Committee has specified the following Standard First Aid and CPR-C certifications as acceptable to fulfill this requirement:

    Certifications equivalent or exceeding the certification courses listed above are acceptable. For example, St. John Ambulance offers a “CPR-BLS & AED” course specific for healthcare workers and is considered equivalent in certification level with the regular “CPR-C & AED” course.  Both courses can satisfy the CPR-C certification registration requirement in the Bylaws.

    In general, courses that are titled “Emergency First Aid” are at a lower certification level than the “Standard First Aid” courses; and hence DO NOT satisfy the Standard First-Aid registration requirement in the Bylaws.

    *Please note: All registrants, new or current, are expected to meet this requirement by March 31, 2024. All registrants are required to report meeting this requirement during annual registration renewal.

    Criminal Record Check

    Before you submit your registration application, you are responsible for completing a Criminal Record Check (CRC) conducted by the Criminal Records Review Program (CRRP).  To ensure a smooth process, you must allow a few weeks for CRRP to process your CRC request and follow up the request by contacting CRRP.  For further details and instructions, please refer to the Criminal Record Check section.

    Applicants applying for registration through reciprocity are required to submit one photograph exactly 1½”W x 2”L taken within one year.
    Documentation on Authorization to Work
    All applicants are required to submit proof of Canadian citizenship, permanent resident status or other statutory authorization (such as a Work Permit).
