Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)2020-09-23T14:23:58-06:00
Can I submit photocopies of my documents for registration?2020-09-23T14:19:24-06:00

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.

Can I work as a Speech-Language Pathologist or Audiologist while I’m waiting for my application results?2019-04-11T14:33:06-06:00

No. You cannot begin working until you are registered with ACSLPA. It is illegal and an offence under the Health Professions Act for you to work or volunteer as a speech-language pathologist or audiologist in Alberta, or provide such services to the public without being registered.

Do I need to write an exam to register with ACSLPA?2020-09-22T15:47:13-06:00

Maybe. The Registration Committee may require you to write the Praxis exam depending on your work experience and education background. If this is true in your case, we will let you know, in writing, as soon as possible.

I am a member of an association that has a mutual recognition or reciprocity agreement with SAC (Speech-Language and Audiology Canada). Does this agreement also apply to ACSLPA?2019-04-11T14:34:55-06:00

No. ACSLPA is a regulatory organization, not a member association. Because of this, mutual recognition or reciprocity agreements with SAC do not apply to ACSLPA or other Canadian regulatory organizations.

I am an SLP from outside Alberta and will be in your province to teach a course and provide some demonstration teaching with clients. Do I need to be registered with ACSLPA?2020-09-22T15:50:24-06:00

Yes. Under the ACSLPA bylaws, courtesy registration allows practitioners to be registered in Alberta for a short term for a narrowly focused specific purpose, provided they are registered in good standing in another jurisdiction.
