Application Processing Time

Are you hiring a physical therapist who is new to BC? Usually, completed applications are reviewed in less than a week, however processing times will be slower in May due to registration renewal. This is what new and reinstating applicants are being told:

  • Starting work in May? Have all your documents in by April 26 and plan to pay the fees by April 30. Note that you will pay the application and registration fees ($700) and then the renewal fee ($500) by May 31. Fees are not pro-rated.
  • Starting work as of June 1? Have all your documents in by May 12 and plan to pay the fees by May 25. Note that you will pay the application and registration fees ($700).
  • We cannot guarantee that applications submitted (with all additional documents) after May 12 will be approved before June 1.
