Resigning Your Registration

If you resign your registration, you are giving up your certificate of registration with the College and will no longer be able to practise the profession in the province of Ontario.

Either prior to or before requesting a resignation, all outstanding requirements with the College must be cleared, whether those are related to Registration, Quality Assurance, or Complaints and Discipline.

During Registration Renewal, Registrants may resign their registration; however, the request and all supporting documents must be received no more than 10 business days before the end of the renewal period on March 31 annually (if the resignation effective date is to be March 31). It is recommended you submit your documentation no more than 10 business days of the date you want to have your request take effect (resignation effective date), if you intend to resign before March 31. If you submit a request to resign after renewal closes, or request a resignation effective date after March 31, you will be required to pay your registration fee for the year and complete the information return form before resigning.

To resign your registration, please complete and submit the online Resignation Application form, along with proof of professional liability insurance providing enduring (tail) coverage for at least five years from your last date of practise.

Resignation requests may take up to 10 business days to process, and are not considered complete until confirmed in writing by the College.

Re-Applying for Registration

If you later wish to practise naturopathy in Ontario, you must reapply to the College as a new applicant and meet all entry-to-practice registration requirements in effect at the time of re-application, including completion of required entry-to-practise examinations.
