How to Check Licence Status

Print this page

Once your licence renewal application is submitted and payment is received, it takes 5 business days to process your information and to notify you that your licence has been renewed. Note: payroll deduction applications are not processed until the end of September.

Once your licence renewal application is processed, you will be notified by email with an official receipt of payment. When you receive this email, it is your responsibility to visit the Licence Status Check to confirm that you have a 2019 active-practising licence.

The Licence Status Check is updated immediately after your application has been processed.

Efficient Processing Timelines

A licence renewal application submitted to CRNNS prior to October 15 may be processed in as little as 5 business days if we receive a complete application and payment. Please note:

  • Applications are not processed in the evenings and on weekends.
  • It may take additional time for CRNNS to receive payment depending on the payment option you choose. For example, it can take up to five days to receive payment from an e-banking transfer.
  • Given the high volume of applications submitted in October, we cannot guarantee that complete applications submitted after October 15 will be processed prior to October 31.

There are several situations that may result in a delay in processing your licence renewal application. This may include but are not limited to:

  • submitting your licence renewal application and payment after October 15
  • having conditions or restrictions on your licence
  • not meeting the currency of competency requirement
  • not submitting the required verification of licensure from another professional licensing body
  • having changed your name since you were last licensed
  • answering “yes” to one of the judicial questions asked on the application form.

We recommend that you give yourself plenty of time to renew your licence in case you are required to provide additional information or documentation.

If you have any questions, you can reach out to us. We will respond within 5 business days.
