Telepsychology from other Jurisdictions into NS

For Psychologists in Canada: In the context of telepsychology, NSBEP interprets “practice” as occurring in the jurisdiction where the psychologist is registered. Accordingly, psychologists registered and licenced to practice by a regulatory authority elsewhere in Canada may deliver telepsychology services to clients in Nova Scotia without having to obtain registration with NSBEP. For clarity, when providing in-person psychology services in Nova Scotia, psychologists registered and licenced in other jurisdictions must first obtain registration with NSBEP.  For the temporary provision of in-person services, NSBEP has a Courtesy Register available. For Psychologists Registered outside of Canada: The NSBEP has temporarily suspended some conditions for the provision of its courtesy register for the provision of telehealth services into Nova Scotia for existing clients by psychologists registered by a regulatory authority outside of Canada.  For the provision of services via telepsychology to an existing client located in Nova Scotia, send an email to notify NSBEP E-mailIn this email, provide your Registration Number, Jurisdiction of Registration, and Contact Information, as soon as possible. No application fee is required. After sending your information, you may begin services with clients as soon as is necessary; there is no need to wait to receive confirmation from NSBEP before providing service. Please note that the above applies only to provision of telepsychology services to existing clients. For the provision of telepsychology services with new clients or to apply to provide in-person services in Nova Scotia, please continue to use our existing courtesy register.Click here for the link for the Courtesy...
