LPN Registration Expires November 30th
If you are an LPN, your registration and authorization to practise expires each year on November 30th at midnight. If you wish to continue to practise in Manitoba after that date, you must renew your registration.
For the lowest fee, your renewal application must be complete and approved by the CLPNM before November 1st at midnight.
CLPNM processing times may vary. For the best access to support, and for an opportunity to submit any required information missing from your application before the deadline, you are strongly encouraged to complete your renewal application as early as possible after September 1.
What to Submit
A complete registration renewal application package includes all of the following:
- An accurate and complete renewal form, submitted using the CLPNM’s online registration system
- Submission of all documents required for the CCP Audit (if selected to participate in the CCP Audit, you will have been notified via email)
- Employer verification of your Manitoba practice hours (if requested, you will have been notified via email)
- Submission of your suitability checks (if requested, you will have been notified in January via Canada Post)
- Full payment of all applicable fees and outstanding amounts owed to the CLPNM
- Submission of any additional information the Executive Director may require from you to confirm your suitability and eligibility to practise
Registrants required to provide additional information will be advised directly by the CLPNM. The CLPNM will communicate with registrants via email. Be sure to check your inbox and junk folder regularly for time-sensitive correspondence. Please note that notices sent to registrants by the CLPNM via email, or posted on the CLPNM website, are considered to have been served on the date they were sent or posted.
Once your complete application is received, it will be assessed against the criteria for registration. Based on information obtained during the renewal application process, should the CLPNM determine that an in-depth registration assessment is required, you will be required to submit additional documentation and pay the registration assessment fee. Your renewal application will not be processed, nor will a registration decision be made, until the assessment is complete and a decision is made regarding your eligibility for ongoing registration. This assessment process can take up to 8 weeks once all information is received; therefore, it is important to renew your registration early to avoid additional fees and/or the expiry of your current registration.
Your registration renewal application must be complete and approved by midnight on November 1st to avoid late fees.
Renewal Opens September 1
Registration renewal notices will be emailed to all active practising LPNs using the email address on record with the CLPNM. This registration renewal notice will advise you if you were selected for the CCP Audit.
If you did not receive your registration renewal notice, you can still proceed with your renewal as of September 1. Once logged into the online renewal system, you will be notified if you were selected for the CCP Audit.
To verify whether your submitted registration renewal application is pending or has been approved or denied by the CLPNM, please search your name or registration number on the public register. If your registration renewal status reads ‘pending’, this means that your application is incomplete and a decision for the upcoming registration year has not yet occurred. The CLPNM communicates primarily via email and the onus is on you to check your email for correspondence from the CLPNM regarding any outstanding requirements.
After the November 1st Deadline
If you complete your renewal application between November 2nd and November 30th at midnight, you will pay a late fee in addition to the registration renewal fee. If you do not complete your renewal application by November 30th at midnight, you will no longer be authorized to practise. Between December 1st and 15th, your registration will be in default and you will be required to pay a late fee and a default reactivation fee, in addition to the renewal fee, before being authorized to practise. The CLPNM Fee Schedule is available here.
If you have not submitted a complete registration renewal application by the close of business on December 15th, you will be required to reinstate your registration if you wish to practise as an LPN in Manitoba. For further information on the reinstatement process, please see the Reinstatement Fact Sheet.
Note that your current year’s registration authorizes you to practise up to and including November 30th. If your CLPNM registration is in default or is cancelled, at any time, you are not authorized to practise as an LPN in the province of Manitoba. Unauthorized practice is subject to penalty fees and disciplinary action and possible prosecution under The Licensed Practical Nurses Act. Additionally, the matter may be referred to the CLPNM Investigation Committee or Board of Directors for review.
Resigning Your Registration
If you do not intend to practise in Manitoba in the upcoming registration year, please take the time to advise the CLPNM that you are resigning. This allows us to keep better statistics about the profession and assists in health human resource planning for the province. You can advise us by logging into your online renewal profile, and by making the change in the “confirmation” tab.
