The Health Professions Act was amended on November 19, 2018 by Bill 21:  An Act to Protect Patients. It is now a legislated requirement that all physicians applying for registration must provide criminal record checks as part of the application for registration. 

Physician applications for registration will only be considered complete once the College has received a criminal record check or a police certificate from every jurisdiction they have ever held any form of registration, licence or practice permit.
