Not planning to renew because of a change in status?  

If you are not planning to renew your permit because you are retiring, taking a temporary leave from practice or leaving Alberta, you must change your status to non-practicing by June 15.

If you do not apply to change your status, and let your membership lapse, your practice permit will be cancelled. You will then be considered a member not-in-good-standing and may encounter difficulties in future attempts at registration in Alberta or elsewhere.

How to complete your CCOA renewal application

Members must complete their College of Chiropractors of Alberta (CCOA) renewal application as part of your professional duty. Do not assign it to your office assistants. Personal declarations are a required part of renewal and it's essential that information reported is true and accurate by the regulated member. 

For the best user experience, online renewal should be completed using a desktop or laptop computer. The CCOA does not recommend using a tablet or smartphone to renew.

The CCOA is not responsible for technology issues beyond its control.

Please note: Renewal obligations, as per CCOA Administrative Policies (1.5 Annual Membership Renewal, 2.2 Standard First Aid with CPR-C with AED, and 2.5 Continuing Competence Credits) are required prior to completing the renewal application process.

Step one: Visit www.theccoa.ca

Sign into Members login, then click on Members’ centre to view your profile.

Step two: Update your contact information

Ensure your contact and clinic information is up to date. 

Step three: Confirm completion of your requirements 

In the “Competence” tab in your Members’ Centre, please confirm your requirements have been met. If you have not completed your requirements, please visit the About CC Credits page for information. Until you complete your requirements, you will not be able to proceed into the renewal application process.

Step four: Complete your renewal application forms

Click the orange Renew Your Registration button located on the left-hand side of your Members' Centre. In order to complete your renewal application, you must first fill out your forms and then submit payment for your annual dues.

Do not click the Proceed to Pay button located under My Current Charges. This button will allow you to pay your fees but not complete your renewal forms, so your application will still be incomplete.

Step five: Acknowledge conditional requirements 

If you have conditional requirements, acknowledge your conditional requirements you submitted by May 31 in this step.

Step six: Upload proof of professional liability protection 

If you hold Professional Liability Protection (PLP) with a provider other than the CCPA, you will be required to provide proof of your current PLI/PLP policy to the CCOA if you have not already done so. You will need to upload proof of your policy when completing your renewal, so please ensure you have a PDF copy of this document ready. Only PDFs will be accepted. 

If you are unable to meet any of the requirements in the Steps one to six, your renewal will be marked incomplete.
