LICENCE RENEWAL PROCESS
The above requirements can be submitted via email or using Canada Post along with a completed Application for Renewal and a cheque or money made payable to NSCDO for the appropriate fee. You can also make payment by credit card by providing your information and authorizing NSCDO to charge your credit card with a credit card authorization form. With this authorization a payment request can be emailed to you with a secure link to complete credit card payment.
Requirements can be sent to:
Nova Scotia College of Dispensing Opticians
Suite 342, Halifax Professional Centre
5991 Spring Garden Road
Halifax, NS B3H 1Y6
Alternatively, requirements can be dropped off at the above address.
The College is mandated to send suspension notices to all registrants who have not renewed by March 31st. To avoid late fees, to confirm there are no outstanding requirements, and to ensure you are eligible to practice for the upcoming year, please renew prior to March 31st.
If you have decided to not renew your Certificate of Registration, please notify the College of your decision. You will receive an acknowledgement email from the College. Your status on the public register will be changed.
If you complete your renewal but do not submit all required documents, or the documents require review by the Registration department, you will receive an email notifying you that your renewal is on hold pending the submission and/or review of the outstanding requirements.
If you meet all the requirements for approval, you will receive an email confirmation within 72 hours of the College receiving your renewal. Your renewal sticker(s) will be mailed to you following the approval.
Upon making payment, your tax receipt will be available for download at the Member Portal within 72 hours of receipt of payment. To access your receipt, please login to the Member Portal, select the Documents tab, and the year in which you made your payment.
