Registration Requirements

1. What are the application/ registration fees?

Fees vary depending on the type of applicant applying to the College and the certificate of registration they are applying for. A mandatory application fee is applied to all registration application forms and must be submitted at the time of your application to the College. The registration fee is a requirement of registration; it is not required at the time the application is submitted, however at the time of registration it must be provided. Please refer to the Fees Schedule for a listing of all College Fees. You may also visit the Accredited Education Applicant, Non-Accredited Education Applicant and Nationally Registered Applicant page for further information regarding associated fees.

2. How long will the process take?

The length of time depends on a number of things, such as the type of applicant, volume of applicants, accessibility of documents, ability to verify documents, etc. The College will endeavor to complete the process in a reasonable and fair amount of time for each applicant. The College responds to request for registration in writing within 1-2 weeks.

3. What is the College policy on the retention of legal and verifying documents?

The College may from time to time request applicants or existing members to submit legal or verifying documents. These requests may be made at the time of application for registration, reinstatement or renewal or between renewal periods if there is a change in status or other circumstances that requires the submission of such documents (e.g. if a member changes his or her legal name in the middle of the year, he or she will be required to submit proof of the name change). Please review our policy on the Retention of Legal and Verifying Documents for further details.

4. Do I need to translate requested documents that are in a language other than English?

Yes. If your documents (e.g. academic documents) are in a language other than English, you will need to have these documents translated.

5. I am unable to provide all the requested documentation what should I do?

If you are unable to provide any requested document (For example, academic documents, letter from employer, transcript or copy of your diploma or degree from educational institution, student record, etc.) please provide a written explanation as to why you are unable to provide it to the College. Incomplete applications that do not include written explanations will not be processed.

Upon receipt of our written explanation the Registration Committee will conduct a fact check assessment to verify the information you provide. The committee reviews each situation on a case by case basis and will notify you in writing of acceptable alternatives, which may include providing a statutory declaration.
