Registrants who wish to maintain their professional status and licenses to practise as RAUDs, RHIPs, or RSLPs in BC must renew their registration through the CSHBC Registrant Portal by the registration renewal deadline specified and communicated by CSHBC. It is the legal and professional responsibility of individual registrants to renew their licenses to practise.
Registrants who wish to renew Certified Practice (CP) certificates expiring on a specific date must do so by that date through the Registrant Portal.
Registration Renewal for 2023/2024
Registration renewal for the registration year from April 1, 2023, to March 31, 2024, has closed. The deadline for renewing registration for 2023/2024 was March 31, 2023.
On April 1, 2023, the registration of any registrants who did not renew their registration on or before March 31, 2023, was cancelled automatically.
Reinstatement for 2023/2024
Registrants who intend to practise in the 2023/2024 registration year who did not renew their registration by March 31, 2023, were required to apply for reinstatement. Applications for reinstatement were accepted between April 1 to April 30, 2023. Applications for reinstatement received after midnight on April 30, 2023, were not accepted. If you applied for reinstatement before the deadline, you cannot practise or use a reserved title until your application has been approved.
Reinstatement applicants must pay a reinstatement fee of $500, in addition to regular renewal fees. Note that a separate reinstatement fee applies for each registration being reinstated.
Re-application for 2023/2024
Registrants who intend to practise in the 2023/2024 registration year but did not renew their registration by March 31, 2023, and did not reinstate by April 30, 2023, are now former registrants who must submit a new application for Full registration and meet all current Full registration requirements in place at the time of re-application, prior to resuming practise. This may pose issues for former registrants who first registered with CSHBC under previous, less stringent registration requirements. If you have re-applied for registration, you cannot practise or use a reserved title until you receive notification from the College that your re-application has been approved.
Certified Practice certificate renewal
Registrants who wished to renew any Certified Practice (CP) certificates expiring on March 31, 2023, were required to renew by that date through the Registrant Portal.
Certified Practice certificate reinstatement & re-application
Registrants with CP certificates expiring at midnight on March 31, 2023, who did not renew the CP certificates by the deadline but wished to continue holding the certificates were required to apply to reinstate certificates during a 30-day reinstatement period: April 1 to April 30, 2023, and pay the CP certificate reinstatement fee of $50 per certificate.
Registrants who applied for reinstatement of a CP certificate between April 1, 2023, and April 30, 2023, are not legally entitled to perform the relevant activity(ies) in BC until they receive notification from the College that their application has been approved.
Applications for CP certificate reinstatement received after April 30, 2023, are not accepted. Registrants who did not apply for certificate reinstatement during the CP reinstatement period must re-apply for the relevant CP certificate under section 91 of the CSHBC Bylaws.
Failure to renew, unlawful practice, & unlawful use of a reserved title
Practising and using any of the reserved titles outlined in the Speech and Hearing Health Professionals Regulation, without renewing your registration, constitutes unlawful practice and unlawful use of a reserved title. Continuing to practise under the scope of an expired CP certificate also constitutes unlawful practice. The College actively enforces against unlawful practice and unlawful use of title as part of its legislated public protection mandate. The College may take legal action against anyone who engages in unlawful practice and/or use of title.
Registration renewal for 2024/2025
CSHBC will communicate information about registration renewal for 2024/2025 by early 2024.
