Occupational therapists must renew their registration with the College of Occupational Therapists of British Columbia (COTBC) every year. Registration begins on July 1 and expires on June 30 each year.
!!New!! Changes to the currency hours now require occupational therapists to have worked 600 hours within the scope of practice of the profession in the past three years immediately preceding their application for renewal. The option of 1000 hours in the past 5 years is no longer acceptable.
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. Please contact the College for assistance.
