The Criminal Record Review Act requires all registrants of a College to consent to a criminal record check at least once every five years. During your College renewal, you will be prompted to consent to a criminal record check if you have not already done so in the last five years and/or you have declared being convicted or charged with a criminal offense that the College is not yet aware of. The Act does not distinguish between practising and non-practising registrants.

Failure to consent to the criminal record check could impact your ability to renew and may require investigation by the Inquiry Committee.

Receipts are available online for printing approximately 48 hours after you have successfully paid.

As a result of the current health crisis, the Ministry of Health asked regulators if they had a list of registrants who could be contacted in the event of an emergency to help with the pandemic response. Although this information was not required in this case, the CCBC did not have a listing of registrants who could be contacted in case of emergency. The CCBC would like to establish a list of registrants who could be contacted and re-deployed in the health care system as a result of a future emergency or health crisis.
