The Registration Working Group includes senior staff representation from each of the provincial and territorial medical regulatory authorities, one representative from the Medical Council of Canada and the Chair of the FMRAC Working Group on Assessment & Supervision.

Historically, the Registration Working Group:

  • Served as the main working group for the Contribution Agreement with HRSDC entitled Towards A National Physician Registration Process for Canada.
  • Drafted national standards for registration and licensure for:
    • Full registration
    • Provisional registration
      • Specify and describe the conditions and restrictions on provisional licenses.
    • Liaised with the FMRAC AIT Steering Committee prior to, and during, consultation with the Members.

Currently, the Registration Working Group continues to review and update the FMRAC Model Standards for Medical Registration in Canada as issues are identified during implementation and other issues arise over time.
