Active Practice Requirements (APR)

July 22, 2019

Note: This article was originally published in our Summer 2019 edition of our On Call newsletter, and has not been updated.

APR reports are due October 1, 2019 and can be submitted through the Member Portal.

All members holding a General certificate of registration are required to actively practise the profession to maintain currency and the ability to practise in all birth settings (out-of-hospital and hospital).

In order to meet the requirements in the Registration Regulation, members must meet the following minimum birth numbers:

Members must report their active practice birth numbers annually by October 1 through the online Member Portal. If you are a member with an Inactive certificate for a year or partial year, you are also required to submit a report and enter 0 (zero) where applicable. Members report each year based on the births they attended in the reporting period of July 1 – June 30.

APR Due Dates 2 or 5-year APR due dates are communicated to members in the APR tab in the Member Portal. The first APR due date is the 2-year APR due date, which is two years from the date a member is registered with the College, adjusted to coincide with the October 1 reporting period. Subsequently, a 5-year APR due date applies. When a member has met their APR requirement and/or their due date is adjusted, a member will be notified.
