Registration Renewal is Open!

You are now able to renew your practice permit online at www.acot.ca. To renew:

  1. start by clicking on the member login icon on the home page. In the user ID line, enter your email on file with ACOT. There is a “forgot your password” prompt if required.
  2. Complete the renewal steps through to registration payment.

What’s new for renewal this year?
• Your user ID is now your preferred email listed with ACOT (the same email address this eNews was sent to), rather than your College registration number.
• Note that practice permits will no longer be sent out by mail, as you can now print them out directly from the online platform.
• You will be prompted to complete your 2019-20 continuing competence program and to start your 2020-21 continuing competence program.


Both of these steps are required before you can proceed to the payment portion of the renewal process.

Be sure to renew before February 29, 2020 to avoid having your practice permit cancelled. Instructions for renewal can be found here.
Note: if you plan to cancel your registration for any reason, please login in to the system to cancel your registration before February 29th, otherwise a cancellation notice will be sent on March 2nd to your last employer we have on file. Instructions on how to cancel your registration can be found in the Guide to Registration Renewal on the ACOT website.

If you require assistance with either renewing or cancelling your practice permit, contact Mallory Foreman, Registration Coordinator at registration@acot.ca or phone 780.436.8381 extension 101.
