Those interested in applying for registration with CRPO must determine whether they are eligible to apply and must ensure that each step of the registration process has been fulfilled.
Fall 2018 Update: A new $100 fee has been implemented as of October 1, 2018 for those applicants who have not graduated from an educational program recognized by CRPO. Applicants who use the CRPO mapping tool to prove educational requirements will pay $260 + HST to submit their application ($160 application fee + $100 unrecognized program fee). Consult these pages for more information about recognized educational programs and CRPO fees.
Summary of Application Process
An applicant who believes they substantially meet the registration requirements must:
- create a user account on our secure Member Management System;
- pay for and successfully complete the Jurisprudence e-Learning Module;
- complete and submit the online application form and materials, and pay the application processing fee; and
- successfully complete the Registration Exam after being deemed eligible to write it.
Access to a computer with an internet connection is required to complete most, if not all, stages of the application process. It is also necessary to have a number of required supporting documents on hand in order to complete the application. A list of this documentation is included in the Registration Guide.
Applicants who are deemed to meet the registration requirements will be notified via the Member Management System that their application has been approved, or that their application is being proposed for refusal. Regular route applicants who have received notice of approval, will be issued a Certificate of Registration once the College has received their registration fee.
