Registration Renewals 2023: A helpful checklist

Posted On: December 7, 2022


Registration renewal opens 9 a.m. ET on February 14, 2023

All Registrants are responsible for renewing their annual registration by the deadline of 5:00 p.m. ET on March 31, 2023.  

Renewal includes completing the online Information Return Form and paying your annual fee. Not renewing on time can result in incurring additional fees and being sent a Notice of Intent to Suspend.

Fees for the 2023–2024 registration year will be announced and posted to our website by mid-January 2023. Included in that announcement will be details about the Payment Plan Program, which will once again be offered to Registrants who wish to pay their annual renewal fee in 10 installments rather than in one lump sum.

If you require an accommodation (e.g., due to a disability) to complete the annual renewal, your request along with supporting documentation must be received by 5:00 p.m. ET on March 2, 2023. To submit an accommodation requests, see Registration Accommodation Request Form – College of Naturopaths Of Ontario, in addition to the Health Professional Recommendation Form – College of Naturopaths Of Ontario which must be completed by a regulated health care professional.


Things to do now

  • Insurance—Make sure your professional liability insurance is always up to date to avoid being unnecessarily suspended and having to pay a reinstatement fee. If your PLI expires April 1st, consider starting the PLI renewal process early with your broker to avoid delays.
  • Currency Information— Practise hours are reviewed annually, and will be audited by the College to ensure Registrants in the General class meet the minimum requirements as set out in section 6 of the Registration Regulation. To ensure you input accurate hours on your Information Return Form, gather this information about your 2022 practise hours now. For additional information regarding currency, including activities which may be included as part of practise hour reporting for Registrants holding a General class certificate of registration without a non-clinical term, condition or limitation, please refer to our Registration Policy. Criteria for the application of a non-clinical term, condition or limitation is also noted therein.
  • CPR —Make sure your CPR certificate is up to date. Registrants in the General class must have valid, healthcare provider-level (HCP) CPR certification OR its equivalent which is currently Basic Life Support with AED (BLS with AED), renewed every two years.
  • Class change—If seeking to renew in a different class of registration, your class change request and supporting documentation must be submitted no later than 5 p.m. ET on March 17, 2023. The change of registration class application forms can be completed and submitted online on our website.
  • Other changes—If you’ve moved, changed practice locations, emails or any other contact details, you are responsible for logging into your account and updating your profile within 30 days of that change. Ensuring your information is up to date prior to renewal will make registration renewal a faster and easier process.
