This Guide will help you apply for the Cross Provincial Practice registration.
What is Cross Provincial Practice (CPP)?
Several provinces have agreed to allow audiologists and speech-language pathologists to provide a limited amount of care across provincial boundaries. The purpose is to enhance access to care for clients/patients.
This agreement is called a Memorandum of Understanding. It allows for registrants who hold a full practicing license in one participating province (the primary province) to apply for Cross Provincial Practice registration in another participating province
(the secondary province). Registrants must apply for a separate cross provincial practice registration in each secondary province they wish to practice.
Cross Provincial Practice registration allows the registrant to provide a maximum of 200 direct client/patient care hours in the secondary province over a 12-month period. The care can be delivered in person or virtually. The number of direct client/patient care hours in the secondary province(s) must not exceed the number of direct client/patient care hours in the primary province.
The agreement makes it easier and more cost effective for SLPs and AUDs who are already registered in a primary province to register and provide client/patient care in a secondary province. The process is faster, and the fees are lower than applying for
