The Registration and Licensing department ensures that only physicians who are fit to practise obtain a licence. We do this by reviewing these things:

  • credentials
  • training
  • certifications
  • certificates of professional conduct
  • practice history

We also arrange any assessments needed to find out if an applicant is ready to practise according to Canadian standards.

This applies to new physicians as well as those who are re-applying for a licence following one or more of these things:

  • a suspension or revocation of a licence
  • an absence from practice
  • a voluntary withdrawal of registration

Our team will help you to navigate the credentialing and licensing process. For more information about the licences available in Nova Scotia, click on the links below:
