The membership committee completes reviews on a monthly basis. As a general rule, you can expect to hear back on whether or not your application has been reviewed and whether you have been accepted within one month from the date when all of your required documents have been submitted to the BCAK office.
The complete review process will however depend on where you obtained your education, "in province", out of province" or "out of country".
Timelines for processing applicants are listed below. Applicants from other parts of Canada and outside of Canada typically require more review time as there are more documents and syllabus review required, particularly for internationally educated applicants whose degree programs typically do not follow the same format as those in Canada.
BC applicants: Within 30 days
Other Canadian applicants: Within 60 days
International applicants: Within 90 days
It is an applicants responsibility to ensure they allow sufficient time for application processing if they have employment arranged. The membership committee will do its best to ensure a timely review of applications as they are received.
We regret that due to the high volume of membership applications received and the limited availability of the volunteer committee members we are unable to accommodate requests to expedite the review of membership applications.
