Registration renewal opens on November 1 and closes on December 31st at 4:30 pm PST. You must submit your annual registration renewal application and pay outstanding fees by this deadline. Your application will be considered incomplete if we have not received the application and/or the required fees. Incomplete applications are cancelled when the deadline passes.
If you work without practising registration, even accidentally, you are participating in unregistered practice, an offence under section 51 of the Health Professions Act. You will be subject to additional fees and surcharges to reinstate your registration, and may be held personally liable for claims during this period because your liability insurance is not valid.
