Technical specifications

For the best user experience, online renewal should be completed using a desktop or laptop computer. The ACAC does not recommend using a tablet or smartphone to renew.
The ACAC is not responsible for technology issues beyond its control.

If you do not plan on renewing your permit

If you do not plan to renew your permit, you must change your status to non-practising. For more information on how to change your member status to non-practising, senior or researcher status, please visit the changing member status section on our website.

Letting your practice permit lapse without changing your status will make you a member not in good standing. This will also complicate your licensure in any jurisdiction including Alberta if you choose to reactivate at a later date.
