Registration Renewal 2024

Registration Renewal 2024

To renew your registration, log in to the Online Registrant Services Portal to pay the renewal fee.  It is easy and secure to renew your registration online with a credit card (only VISA or MasterCard accepted). Please follow the instructions below to renew your registration online:

  1. Go to www.bccsw.ca
  2. Log in to your online account by clicking Registrant Login
  3. Once you have logged in, click Renewal of Registration from the menu and follow through the renewal steps.

Important Note: Please be advised that once you have paid your registration renewal fee online, you may notice ‘Bambora Internet Wholesale‘ on your credit card statement instead of ‘BCCSW’ or ‘BC College of Social Workers’. Please note that Bambora is the credit card processing company used by BCCSW for secure payment transactions. Therefore, the charge on your credit card statement appearing as ‘Bambora Internet Wholesale’ corresponds to the registration renewal fee processed through BCCSW’s trusted credit card processing company. BCCSW kindly requests that you refrain from disputing this charge, as it is a legitimate transaction associated with your renewal.

The renewal period begins on December 1, 2023 and closes on January 31, 2024, which means you are required to renew your registration within this period. If you have not paid by January 31, 2024, your registration will be CANCELLED as of February 1, 2024 and you will be required to pay an additional 35% reinstatement fee to reinstate your registration during the reinstatement period which is from February 1 to April 30, 2024. If you have not reinstated your registration by April 30, 2024, your registration will be CLOSED and you will be required to submit a new application to regain your registration.

If you are paying by cheque, money order or bank draft, complete the Paper Renewal Form and submit it along with payment to the College. Cheques will only be accepted until January 15, 2024.

You may print your tax receipt which also serves as your confirmation of registration through your Registrant Login. Simply log in to your online account and click Invoices and Receipts.

If you do not intend to renew your registration, you can either let your current registration expire at the end of January 2024 or email [email protected] in advance of the January 31, 2024 renewal deadline, indicating your intention to close your registration and the date you would like your registration to be closed. For those who are choosing to leave the profession, we thank you for your contributions to the field.

Please keep in mind that once your registration is closed, you will need to re-apply to the College and meet the registration requirements that are in place at the time of re-application should you wish to obtain registration again in the future.
