Occupational therapists must renew their registration with the College of Occupational Therapists of British Columbia (COTBC) by June 30 each year.
!!New!! Changes to the currency hour requirement now require occupational therapists to have worked 600 hours within the scope of practice of the profession in the 3 years immediately preceding the date of registration renewal or their application for reinstatement. The option of 1000 hours in the past 5 years is no longer adequate.
Registrants will receive renewal information through email correspondence by mid-May of each year. Renewals can be completed online from June 1 to June 30. To renew after July 1 requires reinstating your registration.
