Medical practitioners must provide true and accurate information to the Chief Health Officer for their credentialing.  Intentionally providing false or misleading credentialing information to the Chief Health Officer may result in a penalty.

A penalty will not apply under two circumstances:

  1. the medical practitioner draws the misleading aspect to the attention of the Chief Health Officer when providing the credentialing document or
  2. the medical practitioner provides the Chief Health Officer with the information necessary to remedy the misleading aspect of the document
