Information about Renewal of CRPO Membership for 2017-18

CRPO Members are required to renew their registration on an annual basis, by March 31st of each year.

Members are required to demonstrate ongoing currency in the practice of the profession (i.e. show they have completed 750 hours of broadly defined activities related to psychotherapy in a rolling three-year period), update CRPO with any changes to personal information and/or practice sites, report any conduct-related concerns and pay the associated fee. The Registration Renewal Form for the 2017-18 year will be available beginning in January 2017, under the “Renewal” tab found in Members’ user accounts; Members will also find their registration fee invoice for the next registration year (April 1, 2017 to March 31, 2018) under the “Invoices” tab.

.

The Renewal Form must be submitted no later than 11:59 p.m. on March 31, 2017, preceded by full payment of the annual registration fee, including HST. Please allow three business days for the payment to clear the banking system. Once the payment has cleared, you must remember to return to the online Renewal Form and click “Submit” to send it to us before the deadline, or risk incurring a late fee of $78 +HST.
Members might find it helpful to maintain a portfolio of evidence to facilitate completion of the Renewal Form and have this on hand for quick and easy reference. This portfolio might include an ongoing tally of client and clinical supervision hours, Quality Assurance and Continuing Professional Development obligations, any current, pending or concluded misconduct findings, actions or criminal convictions that occurred in the 2016-17 registration year, professional liability insurance, etc.

.

To accurately report currency, Members should total hours for the various permissible activities they’ve completed in the last three years (i.e. between Jan. 1, 2014 and Dec. 31, 2016). A minimum of 750 hours of currency activities are required. If a Member does not meet the currency requirement, they’ll have the opportunity to explain their circumstances. In some cases, a Member lacking currency may be required to complete upgrading activities, or undergo a peer and practice assessment.

.
Detailed instructions will follow early in the New Year. If you have general questions about the renewal process, please contact info@crpo.ca.
