2. Members who wish to change their status from “practising” to “non-practising” or from “non-practising” to “practising” on or after January 16 will be charged an administrative fee of $105.00 plus HST for a total of $118.65 every time they wish to change their status.

3. There will be no refunds due for members who wish to change their status from “practising” to “non-practising.”

4. Members who wish to change their status from “non-practising” to “practising” after January 16 will be charged an administrative fee as described above, in addition to a pro-rated portion of 50% of a full practising member annual fee.

5. If a member requests to change status from “non-practising” to “practising” before or on the 15th day of the month, the pro-rated portion of 50% of a full practising member annual fee will be include the month that the request is received. If the request is received after the 15th day of the month, the pro-rated portion of 50% of a full practising member annual fee will not include the month the request was received. Please refer to Schedule A below.

6. Members who wish to change their status to “non-practising” must first submit the completed, signed undertaking in Appendix A of the College’s Non-Practising Status policy. In accordance with the College’s Non-Practising Status policy, a member who fails to submit the completed and signed undertaking will continue to be subject to the conditions of registration with the College, including the practice hour requirement.

Newly registered members

7. While the College discourages new applicants from initially registering as non-practising status, newly registered members can do so while securing a practice location following registration. For those new members who initially register as non-practising, the College encourages them to secure a practice location within a maximum six months to change their status to “practising.”

8. Newly registered members who were registered as “non-practising” prior to the current membership renewal period and who have been members of the College less than one full year by January 1 will have until June 30 to change their status to “practising” after first satisfying the College”s requirements for changing status unless they submit proof to the College that they are currently practising in other Canadian provinces, in which case they would be permitted to remain “non-practising.”

9. Should newly registered members wish to change their status to “practising” by June 30, the administrative fee of $118.65 will be waived.

Schedule A: How pro-rated portion of a member’s annual fee is calculated

Example: If request to change from “non-practising” to “practising” is received by the College before or on:

a) February 15 – pro-rated portion due: administrative fee + 11 * (50% of annual member fee)/12

= $118.65 + $533.93 * 11/12
= $608.09

b) March 15 – pro-rated portion due would be: administrative fee + 10 * (50% of annual member fee)/12

= $563.59

Example: If request to change from “non-practising” to “practising” received by the College after:

c) April 15 – pro-rated portion due: $118.65+ $533.93 * 8/12

= $474.60

d) October 15 – pro-rated portion due: $118.65 + $533.93 * 2/12

= $207.64

e) December 15 – pro-rated portion due: $118.65

*Note, all College membership fees, including non-practising, are non-refundable.
