There is a one-time account fee for physiciansapply.ca, which is $278 for 2016. If you previously paid it through PCRC-Online or physiciansapply.ca, you won’t be charged this fee again. Candidates who did not previously pay the account fee will be asked to pay it when creating their physiciansapply.ca account or when submitting their first application for medical registration through their account.
Starting April 1, 2016, the candidates using the AMR through their physiciansapply.ca account will be charged $195 per submission. Candidates who submit an application for medical registration to more than one medical regulatory authority at the same time will only be charged the MCC AMR fee once.
A refund can only be processed with the approval of the appropriate medical regulatory authority (MRA). Candidates must therefore communicate directly with the appropriate MRA for their refund to be approved. Once the MRA confirms the refund to the MCC, the refund, minus an administrative fee of $52, will be applied to the candidate’s physiciansapply.ca account.
The medical regulatory authorities using the AMR currently charge the following fees:
