Resignation

If you will not be working or using the title occupational therapist or OT in Ontario after May 31, 2018 you may choose to resign your registration. Resigning your registration means you will not be able to work as an occupational therapist, use the occupational therapist title, abbreviation, or designation OT Reg. (Ont.), in Ontario, until you are re-registered with the College.

Registrants who wish to resign must do so by May 31, 2018. Please log in and select ‘Resign Registration’. An automatic email will be sent to you confirming your resignation.

If you renew your registration and will not be working in Ontario after August 31, 2018, you may be eligible to receive a partial refund of half the annual renewal fee ($371.52). To receive a partial refund, the following two conditions must be met:

  1. Employment in Ontario must end on or before August 31, 2018.

  2. Certificate of registration must be resigned online on or before August 31, 2018.

Please note, if a partial refund is granted, a new tax receipt will be issued for the 2018-2019 renewal year. Partial refunds will not be granted to OTs who resign after August 31, 2018.
