Please note: the College of Registered Nurses of British Columbia (CRNBC) and the Ordre des infirmières et infirmiers du Québec (OIIQ) are not members of CNPS®. Thus, the services and protection described herein do not apply to nurses who are only members of CRNBC or OIIQ.
CRNBC's liability insurance program is managed by the Captive Insurance Corporation, and provided by a third-party provider, ENCON. Members of the OIIQ are insured through OIIQ's Professional Liability Insurance Program, administered by La Capitale. Nurses from British Columbia and Quebec should contact their respective licensing bodies for specific details about these liability insurance programs.
Registered Nurses from British Columbia and Quebec who wish to augment the insurance coverage available to them from CRNBC and OIIQ may purchase optional professional liability insurance through CNPS Plus.
Pay your professional association / college fees by the prescribed deadline.
When moving to another province / territory, maintain your membership with your former professional association / college until your new association membership takes effect.
The Canadian Nurses Protective Society was created to serve you. Do not hesitate to call CNPS if you have any questions or concerns.
