On February 16, 2022, the following late fee(s) were applied:

  • $150.00 ($50.00 for on leave) for unpaid 2022 registration fees; and
  • $75.000 for '0' PDH in the 2021 PD Report.  

BCIA Registrants must renew their registration by the payable date of February 15, 2022. Log-in and pay via your BCIA profile at this PAY FEES link. Registrants must finalize their 2021 PD Report by January 15, 2022, 11:59 pm. Otherwise, a late PD report filing fee of $75.00 may be applied. (NEW)

UPDATE:  The deadline to finalize the 2021 PD report has been extended to February 15, 2022, for this year only - the payable date to settle the account. For those with '0' PDH as of February 16, 2022 the $75.00 fee will be applied.    

Registrants who have not paid the annual fees by February 15, 2022 will be subject to late fees. Those not renewed by March 31, 2022, 11:59 pm will be removed from the BCIA Register and will need to apply for reinstatement and pay a reinstatement fee in accordance with the BCIA Bylaws.

Registrants who submit their 2022 invoices to their employers for payment are also subject to the February 15, 2022 renewal deadline.  Please allow sufficient time for employers to process renewals.

Best practices for BCIA registration renewal are:

  • Read the President's Special Report relating to the 2022 BCIA Budget and Annual Fees (log-in)
  • Submit notification of any status change ASAP, i.e. change to or from "On Leave" status
  • Verify your current employer and work contact information as per OSPG directives by completing the dialogue box (if visible)
  • Ensure all other contact information is accurate, including the primary email address
  • Reference the PD Guidelines and the Enforcement of Compliance documents
  • Enter all 2021 professional development (PD) activities in the BCIA profile by January 15, 2022 or a $75.00 late filing fee will apply (Council Approved).            UPDATE:  extended to February 15, 2022.
  • Check that required annual and three-year reporting period PD hour minimums are met (if not, be prepared to submit a PD learning plan)
  • Declare your area(s) of practice under the 2021 PD Report.  Note:  AAgs and PAgs may claim up to three (3); ATAgs and TAgs may claim up to two (2)
  • Complete the two new mandatory requirements within the red dialogue box prior to payment of annual fees:  a declarations form and demographic survey 
  • Office staff cannot process a payment by phone, email or mail until all pre-payment requirements are completed online, including the 2021 PD Report
  • If requesting a member card, these will be mailed out after February 15th

2022 Declarations Form

Complete the 2022 Declarations Form (log-in).  Alternately, each Registrant may log-in to their profile without the direct link and complete the form.  If the form has already been completed or is ineligible (students and retirees), the banner message will not appear.  All Registrants must make declarations relating to professional development, area(s) of practice, Code of Ethics, and the foundational indigenous cultural awareness requirement.  

2022 Demographics Survey

Complete the 2022 Demographics Survey (log-in).  Alternately, each Registrant may log-in to their profile without the direct link and participate in the survey.  If the survey has already been completed or is ineligible (students and retirees), the banner message will not appear.

The demographics survey is related to the Professional Governance Act and completing the survey is intended to support reporting to the Office of the Superintendant of Professional Governance (OSPG) in the transition to Reserved Practice; submissions will remain anonymous, as the BC Institute of Agrologists will only provide statistical information.  View BCIA's Confidentiality, Privacy and FOIPPA Disclosure document.
