You may apply for a review of a registration decision if a registration committee has advised you under s.20 of the Health Professions Act that you have a right to do so.

Time Limit to Apply

You have 30 days from the date you receive the registration decision to submit your application under s.50.54 of the Health Professions Act.  If it has been more than 30 days since you received your decision, you must request an extension of time to apply under s.50.61(4) of the Health Professions Act.

How do I apply?

  1. Complete Form 1
  2. Attach a copy of the registration decision that the college sent you
  3. Send it to the Review Board within 30 days of receiving the notice.  If you are beyond the 30 days, you must also submit Form 13.
  4. Send a copy of the application to the college
  5. If you require a suspension/stay of the registration decision, see Practice Directive 6 for more information

What will the Review Board do?

A Review Board member will be assigned to review the registration decision. The member will make an order under s.50.54(9) of the Health Professions Act confirming the registration decision, directing the registration committee to make a decision that could have been made by the registration committee in the matter, or sending the matter back to the registration committee for reconsideration with directions. However, the Review Board member can only order the registration committee to grant your registration in the circumstances described in ss. 50.54(10) and (11) of the Health Professions Act.  One of these circumstances is if you are a person to whom the registration committee is obliged under the Labour Mobility Act to grant registration or certification.
