For those wishing to attend MBCPM™ Level 1, a physician’s referral is required for admission to the course. Please note that some facilitators are not covered by the Provincial Health Plan and there may be a course fee in addition to a materials fee. Some facilitators may be covered by extended benefits plans.
For all other courses, a physician’s referral is only required if more than a year has passed since the last enrolment.
Information for Physicians
One-to-one consultations are usually not done, so please do not include patient history packages. A brief diagnosis on the application form is appreciated.

The Referral Process
Once the referral for MBCPMTM Level 1 has been received, the prospective participant would be contacted by staff of the facilitator, usually near to the time a course is being offered. If the prospective participant decides to enrol, after the enrolment and materials fee is paid they should receive a notification confirming their place in the course.
Admission to the course will depend on the patient’s proximity to a site that is hosting a course and the number of people enrolled at that site.
