Council approved lifting certain restrictions on its Acceptable Qualifying Examinations policy, which allows individuals a path to an independent certificate without completing the Licentiate of the Medical Council of Canada (LMCC) qualification.

The original policy required applicants who completed examinations and obtained a qualification other than the LMCC to be subject to certain restrictions, which included requiring the physician to practise with a mentor and/or supervisor until they successfully completed an assessment.

The changes were made following the College’s commitment to review its existing registration policies and alternatives to support the health care system by reducing barriers to licensure.
