I got my registration with CRPNBC in 2011, can I practice in BC without immigration process?
What is the best way to work after getting the registration.
You MUST have legal permission to work in Canada. Having professional registration is important but it's only a SMALL part of the package. If you don't have the legal right - via temporary work permit or permanent residence - then having that piece of paper from CRPNBC means just about nothing. How is it that you didn't know that already?
Are you a permanent resident / landed immigrant? What is your legal status in Canada? Do you have a social insurance number?
before I got my PR but during the study I lost it.
somebody told me that I can work on north territories if I get temporary work permit. I did a big mistake.
hope to get my immigration again even now is more difficult then many years ago.
many British nurses work after getting the license, even before the registration they worked.
i read in British expat forum
The British expat nurses would have had their immigration status sorted out and established before they could work. Period. It is possible to work here without having registration, as a graduate nurse. But it IS NOT possible to work without a work permit or permanent residency, unless you want to be deported and never permitted to enter Canada again.

Nursing is not on the list.

Did you lose your PR by not living in Canada for 2 out of 5 years, or by committing and being convicted of a serious crime? Those are generally the only two ways one loses PR. Since you now have CRPNBC registration, I have to assume it's because you didn't live in Canada for 2 out of 5 years (which really isn't an onerous requirement at all if one intends to live in Canada permanently - as implied by PERMANENT RESIDENCY). As for working in the "north territories" they are part of Canada and you will still need an appropriate work permit to work there. Here is some information on working in Canada without legal status: Canadian Newcomer Magazine - Jobs: Consequences of Illegal Work You also should be aware that if you work anywhere in Canada illegally and are caught, you will have your practice permit/registration/license - call it what you will - revoked for unethical and unprofessional behaviour. So my advice to you is to reinstate your application for a work permit as soon as you can.
Hi Fiona, before I got my PR but during the study I lost it. somebody told me that I can work on north territories if I get temporary work permit. I did a big mistake.hope to get my immigration again even now is more difficult then many years ago.
You would still have to get your registration sorted and that will depend on whether the Northern territories accept Psychiatric as a stand alone or whether you have to be general trained and have passed the CRNE.
Really you was told a couple of years ago what to do to get a work permit. Not sure what happened with you but things have really gotten harder not easier for nurses to move to Canada
