Maintaining gamete donor records

On May 30, 2013, the Supreme Court of Canada dismissed Olivia Pratten's application for leave to appeal from the November 27, 2012 Order of the BC Court of Appeal, effectively setting aside the trial judge's order of May 19, 2011 and concluding the matter of Pratten v. British Columbia (Attorney General) and the College of Physicians and Surgeons of British Columbia.

In light of this dismissal, College registrants are no longer required to permanently preserve gamete donor records as outlined in the BC Court of Appeal's Order of November 27, 2012.
