In order to apply for registration with the College, applicants must complete and submit the Application for Registration. Each registration application form has a related Application Guide which explains the application process, how to complete the form and what documentation needs to be submitted with the application form. Additionally, applicants are requested to complete the Application Checklist and submit it to the College along with all required documents.
What happens next?
Once an application is submitted, it is reviewed by staff. Incomplete applications will be held until all documentation is received before processing. The applicant will be contacted by the College if there are any deficiencies.
An application is not considered complete and will not be processed until all required elements have been received by the College. Failure to submit copies of required documentation will delay the processing of the application.
Completed applications will be processed as expediently as possible. During the initial period following proclamation, it is expected that processing completed applications could take up to 12 weeks, as the College will be clarifying and refining the process during this time to ensure transparent, objective, impartial and fair review of applications. The College will be contacting applicants if their application will be delayed beyond a six-week timeframe.
If the application is complete and indicates that the applicant has met all registration requirements, the applicant will be notified of their provisional approval and informed of the registration fee. The Registrar will issue a Certificate of Registration upon receipt of the registration fee.
If the application is complete but information provided requires review by the Registration Committee, the applicant will be notified and can provide more information if desired.
