Taking a Leave or Resigning

If you will not be working or using the title occupational therapist (OT) in Ontario after May 31, 2024, you may choose to resign your registration.

Resigning means you will not be able to work as an occupational therapist or use the title occupational therapist, abbreviation, or designation OT Reg. (Ont.), in Ontario, until you are re-registered with the College.

If you maintain your registration with the College while on leave, you will be required to purchase professional liability insurance, comply with all mandatory Quality Assurance requirements, and meet all other professional obligations.


  • If you do not complete renewal or resign your registration by the May 31, 2024 deadline, you will receive notice that your registration will be suspended for non-payment of fees if fees are not paid within 30 days.

Renew early: Don’t wait until May 31.
