Before you submit your registration application, you are responsible for completing your Criminal Record Check (CRC) by the Criminal Records Review Program (CRRP) through the Ministry of Public Safety and Solicitor General.
Except for former registrants whose CRC clearance are still valid. The expiry date of your CRC clearance letter may be found on the Member Portal at https://portal.ctcma.bc.ca/
All current registrants must complete a Criminal Record Check (CRC) at least once in every five years. You are required to complete a new CRC by the Criminal Record Review Program (CRRP) through the Ministry of Public Safety and Solicitor General before your CRC clearance expires.
Under the Health Professions Act, failure to complete a CRC requires the College to take action. The Inquiry Committee will review all registrants who failed to complete a CRC and may take action as prescribed under that Act, such as setting limits or conditions on the practice of the registrant or suspending or cancelling the registration of the registrant as an immediate result.
The expiry date of your CRC clearance may be found on
- the Registrant Portal at https://portal.ctcma.bc.ca/; and
- the Confirmation of Registration Renewal letter which the College sends to registrants upon the completion of registration renewal every year.
