Initial Registration - International Applicants (IEOT)

Applicants to COTM after April 30th, 2015 must establish Educational Eligibility through the ACOTRO Substantial Equivalency Assessment System (SEAS).  Please see: Important Notice for Internationally-Educated Applicants and these ACOTRO links: SEAS Introduction and FAQS on SEAS.

To learn more about SEAS, visit the ACOTRO website: To begin your application process, visit the SEAS portal:

Please note: Effective May 1, 2018, there will be a rate increase for the SEAS process. Please see memo: Notice of Change in Fees for the SEAS Process

To apply to COTM, you must complete the COTM Application for Registration and submit documents to show that you meet the registration requirements.

The information supplied in this section of the website and documents from the lists on the left that are applicable to you. You can send the documents you need for registration in 3 phases.

  • Phase 1 establishes your academic eligibility. Before you apply to COTM, you must complete the SEAS process and be able to provide COTM with a copy of your SEAS Determination Report.
  • Phase 2 establishes your professional eligibility.
  • Phase 3 establishes your employment eligibility. This is the last step in the registration process. You can do this when you have an employment offer in Manitoba. For this last phase, you must also show proof of malpractice insurance coverage and send any other needed documentation. If it takes longer than 6 months to get an employment offer, you may need to update some of your professional eligibilty information.
