Emergency Bylaw 2.18 Rescinded Effective July 15, 2022
On 20 March, 2020, Dr. Karen Shaw, the College’s Registrar, made a declaration of an emergency under Bylaw 2.18 to expedite licensing physicians to meet the needs of the Saskatchewan population during the Covid pandemic.
Effective 15 July, 2022, the Registrar rescinds this declaration of an emergency and the provisions of this Bylaw are no longer in effect.
Launch of the Licentiate of the Medical Council of Canada (LMCC) Service (2022.01.21)
On January 20, 2022, the Medical Council of Canada (MCC) announced the launch of its new Licentiate of Medical Council of Canada (LMCC) service. This signals MCC is ready to process LMCC requests for candidates who meet the established criteria.
If you meet the criteria, you can request and pay the LMCC Application fee through your physiciansapply.ca account. Through this portal, the MCC will issue the LMCC.
For more information on the new LMCC service, please see the MCC Website and FAQs
While CPSS will have access to verify that you have been awarded the LMCC through physiciansapply.ca, we will not receive notice from either MCC or from physiciansapply.ca. As such, we ask that you please email firstname.lastname@example.org to inform us if you have been awarded your LMCC, as this may have a positive impact on your current licensure status.
Due to the high volume of requests made, there may be a delay in responding and reviewing your file to determine if this credential has an impact on your current licensure status. We thank you in advance for your patience.
Implementing and issuing the Licentiate of the Medical Council of Canada (LMCC) (2021.07.18)
Effective June 29, 2021, the MCC has introduced a new service to be able to grant the LMCC to individuals who meet all of the criteria. Qualified candidates will also be enrolled in the Canadian Medical Register in accordance with the MCC’s existing Policy on Registration in the Canadian Medical Register. Click here to read more.
