Introducing the National Registry of Physicians

Laptop on desk


In October 2022, the Government of Canada under the Sectoral Workforce Solutions Program approved a funding request that will enable the Medical Council of Canada (MCC) to establish the National Registry of Physicians (NRP).

This initiative received support from 12 provincial and territorial Medical Regulatory Authorities (MRAs), and the funding was officially announced on March 15, 2023. Since then, the MCC has received positive feedback from the medical community and inquiries about how this new registry aligns with the overall discussion on national or portable licensure.

More updates will be provided as the initiative progresses. The anticipated launch of the NRP is March 2024.
