For Psychologists in NB, PE and NL: The NSBEP has temporarily suspended some conditions for the provision of telehealth services into Nova Scotia by psychologists registered in the Atlantic provinces covered by the MOU. For the provision of services via telepsychology to a client located in Nova Scotia, please continue to send an email to notify NSBEP E-mail
In 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. This applies to existing and new clients. For the provision of in-person services, please continue to use our existing Courtesy Register.

For Psychologists from other Jurisdictions: The NSBEP has also 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 in other jurisdictions not covered by the Canadian Atlantic Provinces MOU.
 
In the context of COVID-19,  existing clients also includes:
  • clients who are temporarily located in Nova Scotia due to COVID-19 and are entitled to receive those services as a benefit of their registration with a University or College or other benefit program outside of Nova Scotia, where the services will be provided by an out-of-province psychologist on behalf of the University or College counselling service or other benefit program; or
  • clients who are temporarily located in Nova Scotia due to COVID-19, when it is reasonably expected that the clients will require continuing services with the same psychologist upon the client’s return to the jurisdiction in which the clinician is registered.
Please note that the above applies only to provision of telepsychology services to existing clients, as described above. For the provision of telepsychology services with new clients who do not meet the criteria described above or to apply to provide in-person services in Nova Scotia, please continue to use our existing courtesy register.
