To practise as a Registered Audiologist (RAUD), Registered Hearing Instrument Practitioner (RHIP), or Registered Speech-Language Pathologist (RSLP) in BC, you must be a CSHBC registrant. Applicants to become a RAUD, RHIP, or RSLP in BC may begin practice when they have met CSHBC’s entry-to-practice requirements and been granted registration.

There are three pathways to entry-level practice for each of the three professions regulated by CSHBC: 

  • Pathway 1: Canadian-Educated Applicants – for graduates of accredited or approved programs within Canada who are not currently regulated in another Canadian jurisdiction.
  • Pathway 2: Internationally-Educated Applicants – for graduates of audiology and speech language pathology education programs offered outside Canada who are not currently regulated in another Canadian jurisdiction.
  • Pathway 3: Labour Mobility Applicants – for professionals currently regulated in another Canadian jurisdiction, i.e. audiology and speech-language pathology: Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Newfoundland & Labrador; hearing instrument dispensing: Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Nova Scotia, Quebec, and Newfoundland & Labrador.

To apply, create an account in the CSHBC Applicant Portal, log in to the portal, and follow the prompts for choosing a pathway and submitting required information.

CSHBC receives standard applications, where it is very clear that each of the College’s registration requirements are met, and non-standard applications, where it is less clear that one or more of the requirements is met. For information about non-standard applications, see Non-standard Applications & Registration Committee Review.
