If the College determines that…Then…
  • You meet all the requirements for registration, and
  • You do not hold a work permit, and
  • There are no reasons to impose TCLs on your Certificate of Registration
  • You will be issued a Certificate of Registration and your registration will be added to the College's public register as a current member.
  • You meet all the requirements for requirements for registration, and
  • There are reasons (e.g., work permits) to impose TCLs on your Certificate of Registration
  • You will be sent a letter with proposal from the College to issue you a Certificate of Registration that is subject to TCLs.*
    • If you do not agree with the proposal, you can submit a request that the Registrar reconsider your application, as described here, or, you can make a submission to the Registration Appeals Committee, as described here. The final outcome of your application will be determined by these processes.
    • If you do not respond within the required timeframe, the College will carry out the proposal and issue you a Certificate of Registration with TCLs imposed on it. Your registration will be added to the College's public register as a current member subject to TCLs.

  • ​*For TCLs that are related to work permits, the easiest way for you to provide consent is in Section 6: Eligibilit​y to work in Canada of the Application Form for the Individual Assessment of Educational Qualifications. ​ If you provide consent in that part of the form, the College will not need to send you a letter with a proposal about the TCLs related to work permits.
  • You do not meet one or more of the requirements for registration
  • You will be sent a letter with a proposal from the College to refuse to issue you a Certificate of Registration.
  • ​You will have the opportunity to respond to the proposal.
    • You can submit a request that the Registrar reconsider your application, as described here, or, you can make a submission to the Registration Appeals Committee, as described here. The final outcome of your application will be determined by this process.
    • If you do not respond within the required timeframe, the College will carry out the proposal and refuse to issue you a Certificate of Registration. If in the future you wish to become a member of the College, you will need to make a new application and re-start the application process.

  • ​If the final outcome is to refuse you a Certificate of Registration, the College will issue you a refund for the registration fee portion of the application and registration fees you paid. (See the 'Section 4: Application and Registration Fees'​ section of this guide for information about fees).
