Changing Registration Class or Resigning

Changing classes? Resigning from the college? See below for our 2021 processes.

If you have any questions about the class change process, please contact regadmin@cmo.on.ca

Class Change from Inactive to General

If you are in the Inactive class and intend to change your registration class to General between August 1 to November 1, please complete and submit an Application for Certificate of Registration Class Change from INACTIVE to GENERAL to the College, using the secure deposit box, eight weeks in advance of the requested date of the change.

Regardless of the effective date of the class change, renew your registration with the College no later than November 1. If additional registration fees are required respecting the class change, you will be advised by email.  For detailed class change information, and to access the College’s secure deposit box, click here

Class Change from General to Inactive between August 1 and September 30

If you are in the General class and intend to change your registration class to Inactive between August 1 and September 30, please complete and submit an Application for Certificate of Registration Class Change from GENERAL to INACTIVE to the College, using the secure deposit box in advance of the requested date of the change.

As soon as the College processes your form, the online renewal system will adjust your renewal fees to the Inactive fees. Accordingly, where possible, you may wish to submit your renewal application to the College after the effective date of the class change, provided you do so before the renewal date of November 1.  For detailed class change information, and to access the College’s secure deposit box, click here

Class Change from General to Inactive effective between October 1 and November 1

During the renewal period, change of class requests from General to Inactive with an effective date between October 1 and November 1 will be processed directly through the online registration renewal application. A class change form isn’t required.

Indicate your intended class in Step 2 of the online renewal application, which will also automatically adjust your renewal fees. Inactive members of the College still need to complete the required sections of the registration renewal application and pay renewal fees to maintain registration with the College.  

Resignation vs Inactive

To assist you in making the decision to resign or to renew your registration with the College, please review this document.

Resigning your Membership on or before October 1

If you intend to resign your membership on or before October 1, either indicate this in Step 2 of the online renewal application or through the Resignation tab in the Member Portal. You will then be directed to the online resignation page. Resignation applications are completed online but are processed and verified by College staff who will confirm your resignation. Please also update your contact information on file with the College. 

Resignation requests submitted with an effective date of October 1st or earlier will not require additional fees or the submission of a renewal form. 

Resigning your Membership between October 2 and November 1

Resigning between October 2 and November 1 still requires registration renewal by November 1. Failure to renew by November 1 will result in the 15% late penalty fee on membership fees being levied along with pro-rated registration renewal fees. All outstanding fees must be paid before a resignation can be processed.  

To resign between October 2nd and November 1st, please follow these steps:

  1. Submit a resignation request through the Resignation Request tab in the Member Portal before the effective date of resignation, but not later than November 1st.
  2. Complete and submit your renewal form selecting the pay by cheque option.
  3. Send an email to regadmin@cmo.on.ca requesting an adjustment to your renewal invoice. We will work to provide you with a response within two business days.
  4. Submit payment by credit card using the Invoices/Receipts tab of the Member Portal no later than November 1st or mail a cheque to the College to arrive no later than November 1st.

The College will confirm the resignation in writing once processed. Resignations cannot be back dated.
