Changes to CLPNBC fees


The Board approved amendments to Schedule D of the CLPNBC Bylaws (the Fees). The Board determined that fee increases are required to make sure CLPNBC is able to cover its projected expenses for 2018. 

Effective November 1, 2017, the practising registration fee will be increased from $300 to $350. Other fee changes include repeat Jurisprudence exam attempt, repeat offence of practising without registration, limited registration, interim registration, and verification of registration or copy request.


Amendments to CLPNBC’s Fee Schedule

Collecting fees allows CLPNBC to carry out the functions and responsibilities of a regulatory college. The costs associated with running CLPNBC are available in each annual report

As outlined in the Health Professions Act, CLPNBC is required to run a variety of programs. Fees paid by registrants are used for these programs, which are designed to protect the public and act in the public interest. 

Over the last three years, CLPNBC has had a funding gap of between $14.74 and $31.72 in the fees it collects from each registrant. The current fees are no longer enough to cover the costs of regulating LPNs, which has caused CLPNBC to increase its fees.

Even with the fee increase, CLPNBC fees will continue to be comparable to fees of other LPN regulators in Canada. Our fees are similar or less than fees paid by many other BC health professions.
