Renewing Your Professional Liability Protection with Canadian Nurses Protective Society (CNPS)

The requirement for a minimum of $5 million of professional liability protection (PLP) was introduced in 2019. The College of Registered Psychiatric Nurses of Manitoba General Regulation requires that a member who holds a valid certificate of practice must obtain and maintain professional liability protection as a beneficiary of the Canadian Nurses Protective Society (CNPS).

The CRPNM has entered into an agreement with the Canadian Nurses Protective Society (CNPS) to ensure Manitoba Registered Psychiatric Nurses, and Graduate Psychiatric Nurses, can meet this requirement. You will pay the 2023 CNPS fee when you renew your registration. The payment of the CNPS fee will satisfy the CRPNM that you have met the PLP requirement.

The PLP fee is set by CNPS. You can learn more about Professional Liability Protection/CNPS here

Verifying Your 2023 Registration Renewal

When you renew your certificate of practice, your certificate will update with your new expiry date on January 1, 2023. However, the registration history at the CRPNM Public Register will record the effective date as soon as your renewal is approved. 
Employers have been asked to use the Public Register or the Employer Verification Site to verify your registration status. This is the most reliable method of verification as the information is updated in real time. If your employer has questions or concerns, you can also direct them to the CRPNM office.

All CRPNM members who are eligible to renew their registration will receive an email when renewal opens. Renewal can be accessed at your Online Self-Service Portal. Please feel welcome to contact us should you have more questions.
