All CRTO Members must renew their registration on an annual basis. The CRTO registration year runs from March 1 until the end of February. All members must renew online. Paper renewal forms are not available. To renew, Members must pay an annual fee* and complete the online renewal form. Each year, the deadline for completing the registration renewal is the last day of February.
Members who do not complete their annual registration renewal by the February 28/29 deadline may have their certificates of registration suspended. A person whose certificate of registration has been suspended is no longer permitted to practise as a Respiratory Therapist in Ontario. The suspensions are displayed on the CRTO’s Register of Members.
