Please be advised that during the Renewal Period, other registration applications (such as initial application, status transfer, reinstatement) may take longer to process, potentially 8-12 weeks. Anyone requiring such registration is encouraged to ensure that submissions are received by our office before the Renewal Period begins.
We suggest that registrants check now to make sure that all requirements for registration renewal can be met and plan to complete your registration renewal online, early. If for any reason you are not able to renew your registration by the end of the Renewal Period, your practice could be affected negatively.
In order to receive your new wallet-sized card and seal, or your student badge, before your current one expires, we suggest that registrants renew online by the first Monday in March, that is, by March 2.
Please note that CTCMA Bylaws s56(6) states that “where a registrant fails to pay a registration renewal fee on or before March 31, he or she ceases to be registered.”
Detailed information can be found at the Registration Renewal page on the College website.
Full registrants: To renew your registration, complete your online renewal through the Registrant Portal.
Student registrants: To renew your registration and continue to undertake clinical training in a Traditional Chinese Medicine education program in BC, complete your online renewal through the Registrant Portal. Follow the instructions on the Student Registration Renewal webpage and submit the required documentation. We recommend that you submit your documentation early to allow for processing time.
Dual registrants: To renew both your Full and Student Registration, complete your online renewal through the Registrant Portal. Follow the instructions on the Dual Registration Renewal webpage and submit the required documentation. We recommend that you submit your documentation early to allow for processing time.
Please note: If you wish to renew only one of your registrations (e.g. R.Ac. and Student to R.Ac. only; R.TCM.H. and Student to Student only), you are not eligible to renew online. Please follow the instructions on the Dual Registration Renewal webpage. Allow sufficient time for processing by submitting your application and documentation early.
