Licence renewal for the November 1, 2021 to Oct 31, 2022 year opened September 1, 2021.

The Council-set deadline for the 2021/22 year to renew without penalty was Oct 4, 2021 (11:59 pm). A complete application, including payment of fees, and any required documents, e.g., CPR at the level specified by Council, must be received by this deadline. 

Licences expire on October 31 of each year. 

Council-set fees for 2021/2022 are:

  • Practising Licence Fee: $510.00
  • Non-Practising Class Fee: $110.00 
Individuals who do not meet the Council-set deadline of October 4, 2021 but submit a complete renewal application between October 5 and October 31, 2021 will be required to pay additional fees. During this time period:
  • Registrants wishing to renew their practising licence must pay an additional $100 payment.
  • Registrants wishing to renew in the non-practising licence category must pay an additional $20 payment.
Registrants who do not renew by October 31, 2021 will have their licence suspended. If they want their licence renewed, they will be required to pay reinstatement fees in addition to the $100 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.
