Licence renewal

Licences expire on October 31 of each year. 

Renewal for the Nov. 1, 2021 to Oct. 31, 2022 licensing year has now closed.  

Registrants who did not renew by October 31, 2021 have had their licences suspended. If they want their licence renewed, they will be required to pay reinstatement fees in addition to the $100 late fee payment, and will be required to provide proof they have met all other licensing requirements. If repeated and flagrant violations of these deadlines and the renewal process occur, a complaint may be referred to the Investigation Committee.
