Maintaining gamete donor records

Pratten v. British Columbia (Attorney General) and College of Physicians and Surgeons of British Columbia

Registrants are advised that Ms. Olivia Pratten’s appeal from the November 27, 2012 Order of the BC Court of Appeal was dismissed by the Supreme Court of Canada on Thursday, May 30, 2013, effectively 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.

The College’s duty is to make registrants aware of applicable legislation and ensure that the laws governing the medical profession are aligned.
