Comprehensive amendments to the CSHBC Bylaws came into force on June 29, 2020. Although text on CSHBC webpages has been updated to reflect the amended Bylaws, we are in the process of updating PDF documents on this website such as policies, guidelines, standards, and forms. We request that you bear this in mind when reviewing these documents and also keep in mind the key bylaw amendments.
We appreciate your patience while we work towards making necessary changes to all College documentation to reflect the amended Bylaws. If you have any questions in respect to the above, please contact CSHBC at firstname.lastname@example.org.
CSHBC Registration Renewal for 2020/2021
Registration renewal for the registration year from April 1, 2020 to March 31, 2021 opened February 24, 2020. Registrants who wish to maintain their professional status as RAUDs, RHIPs, or RSLPs in BC must renew their registration, and should do so through the CSHBC Registrant Portal.
Registration Renewal Important Deadlines and Installment Plan
The deadline for renewing your registration for 2020/2021 is March 31, 2020.
However, in light of the situation with COVID-19, on March 18, 2020, the College’s Registration Committee passed a one-time emergency resolution that enables CSHBC registrants to pay registration renewal fees for 2020/2021 in an installment plan. The Registration Committee implemented the installment plan solely to address the extraordinary situation arising from the COVID-19 pandemic. Read the emergency resolution.
According to the resolution, for the year 2020/2021 only, registrants may pay registration renewal fees in two installments:
- Renewal of Full (previously known as “Active”) and Conditional (previously known as “Conditional Active”) registration: two installments of $375 each, due June 30, 2020 and August 31, 2020.
- Renewal of Non-practising (previously known as “Inactive”) registration: two installments of $137.50 each, due June 30, 2020 and August 31, 2020.
Now that the installment plan has been implemented, all registrants who have not renewed their registration will be automatically moved to the installment plan.
Through the Registrant Portal, registrants must complete the registration process and installment plan declarations. At that point, two invoices will be auto-generated: one invoice for 50% of the total registration fees due on or before June 30, 2020, and one invoice for 50% of the total registration fees due on or before August 31, 2020. Any registrant wishing to pay both invoices up front may do so.
Registrants not intending to practise in the 2020/2021 registration year are asked to contact the College prior to the March 31, 2020 registration renewal deadline.
Registrants who fail to pay registration renewal fees by the installment deadlines will have their registration cancelled for failure to meet registration renewal requirements. Installments must be paid on time. There is no grace period or “reinstatement” period after an installment deadline.
If you have already renewed your registration, you are not eligible to switch to the installment plan. CSHBC thanks those registrants for renewing their registration in advance of the deadline.
Failure to Renew and Unlawful Practice
Practicing or using any of the reserved titles set out under the Speech and Hearing Health Professionals Regulation, BC Reg 3300/300, without renewing your registration will be unlawful practice or use of title.
The College actively enforces against unlawful practice and use of title as part of its legislated public protection mandate. The College may take regulatory action against anyone who engages in unlawful practice or use of title.
Registration Renewal Requirements
Before renewing, please ensure the following registration renewal requirements have been met:
- You hold valid professional liability insurance; and
- Any outstanding fees and/or fines have been paid.
