College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists of British Columbia


A former registrant may be reinstated to the registry as a non-practising registrant in accordance to section 58 of the Bylaws

Every application will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Considering the activities the applicant conducted during the de-registered period and the length of time in the de-registered period, the College may set certain requirements for an applicant to complete before allowing him/her to reinstate to the registry as non-practising registrant.  Please refer to section 58 of the Bylaws for details.

Before you submit your registration application, you are responsible for completing your Criminal Record Check (CRC) by the Criminal Records Review Program (CRRP) through the Ministry of Public Safety and Solicitor General.  For details, please refer to Criminal Record Check.

If you wish to change from non-practising to practising status after you have been reinstated to the registry as a non-practicing registrant, you are required to submit the “Registration Status Transfer” form and all the required documentations and fees to the College.  For details, please refer to the “Registration Status Transfer” 

Both Non-Practicing Reinstatement applicatin form and Registration Status Transfer application form can be submitted to the College at the same time if you wish.

A former registrant, who currently holds registration or licensure in another Canadian jurisdiction as the equivalent of a full registrant which is not subject to any practice limitations, restrictions or conditions in that jurisdiction that do not apply generally to registrants in British Columbia, may refer to the information for Reciprocity.
