2019 Renewal Process
Find the 2019 Renewal Guide here.
The 2019 online renewal form and all necessary documents must be submitted by the renewal deadline of April 1 in order to renew your Certificate of Registration with the College.
Submitting this form and payment after the renewal deadline will result in late fees. Failure to provide information and/or non-payment of fees could lead to suspension of your Certificate of Registration. Annual registration renewal is not considered complete until all mandatory questions are answered and payment of the fee is received.
If you seek to transfer to or from the Inactive Class or resign your registration with the College you must notify the Registration Department as soon as possible. The provincial legislation which governs homeopaths in Ontario does not technically recognize the words “not renewing.” Therefore, in order to comply with this legislation, Registrants must either renew in one of the three registration classes or resign their registration by completing the Resignation Form. Class transfers and resignations follow a separate process and cannot be completed as a part of the Renewal Form. Registrants who do not comply with this legislation will have their Certificate of Registration administratively suspended. The College is required to post all suspensions on the Public Register.
About HealthForceOntario Data Collection
A Quality Assurance (QA) Program under the Regulated Health Professional Act, 1991 (RHPA) is designed to enhance the practice of all members of the profession by non-punitive means. The RHPA, Procedural Code, s. 1(1) defines “quality
assurance program” as “a program to assure the quality of the practice of the profession and to promote continuing
evaluation, competence and improvement among the members.”
Each registrant must participate on an ongoing basis in the College’s Quality Assurance (QA) program. The requirements, listed below, are mandated by RHPA, and the College’s Quality Assurance Regulation (O. Reg. 32/13).
Additionally, each registrant may undergo a Peer and Practice Assessment (PPA) with a QA Assessor assigned by
the College. PPA is intended to ensure registrants are continuing to maintain their professional knowledge, skill and
judgment and to provide registrants with specific guidance to address any deficiencies noted.
The College of Homeopaths of Ontario (CHO or the College) requires registrants to maintain ongoing practice hours. This
requirement helps registrants maintain their competence on a continuing basis. Competence is demonstrated not just by
knowing how to practice, but through consistently doing the right things every time. It is also about understanding what you
know about practicing homeopathy in Ontario, recognizing what you don’t know, and taking steps to increase or improve
your knowledge, skill and judgment. Competence applies to clinical, theoretical, ethical, and regulatory compliance areas of
