Winter is coming – and so is annual renewal!

It’s almost that time of year again – time for all practising and non-practising LPNs to renew their CLPNBC registration! Renewal for the 2018 registration year opens on November 1, 2017 and closes at 4:30 p.m. on December 31, 2017.

Renewal fees for 2018:

  • $350 for practising registration
  • $90 for non-practising registration

Be aware if your application for registration is incomplete or not paid by 4:30 p.m. on December 31, 2017, it will automatically be cancelled. If your application is cancelled or you do not apply:

  • You will not be allowed to work as an LPN after midnight on December 31!
  • Your registration is cancelled.
  • We will advise the public and your employer(s) through the Public Registry that you are “not authorized to practise in BC”.
  • Reinstating after January 1 will cost you more!
