COVID-19: Emergency Assignment Class

As Ontario moves into phase 3 of the reopening plan, CNO will expire all Emergency Assignment Class registrations on August 17, 2021. The Emergency Assignment Class (EAC) was enacted on April 19, 2021 for the purpose of allowing qualified individuals to provide nursing care during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Any Emergency Assignment Class member who wants to continue practicing as a nurse in Ontario may do so by registering in another practicing class. To learn more about your registration choices, read COVID-19: Registration options when Emergency Assignment Class ends.

We continue to support Ontario's health care system during the rapidly changing COVID-19 pandemic.
