No. You must submit the original, signed application form, either in person or through the mail or courier. We cannot accept photocopied, faxed, or scanned forms.
The checklist in the application package will give you more detail about the documents you require, including which documents must come directly from the institution where you received your degree or qualifications.
After you have submitted all the required documents, it usually takes a minimum of 1–2 weeks to process your application if you are a/an:
- New Graduate of a Canadian Accredited* Program
- New Graduate of a United States (US) Program
- Applicant from a Provincial Regulatory Organization in Canada (BC, SK, MB, ON, QC, NB)
- Applicant from a Provincial/Territorial or National Association in Canada or the US (NL, NS, PEI, NWT, SAC or ASHA)
If you were educated outside of Canada or the US, the exact amount of time to process your application will depend on how long it takes the committee to review your documents and on the timing of the Speech-Language and Audiology Canada (SAC) Certification Examination. You will not be registered with ACSLPA until we receive notice that you’ve successfully passed the SAC exam. You can write this exam at two different times in the year (usually spring and fall) up to a maximum of 3 times in total.
