Resigning your HRPA Registration
You may resign from HRPA at any time by completing and submitting a Resignation Form to the Office of the Registrar . The resignation takes effect at the time the completed Resignation Form is received or at the time specified in the resignation, whichever is later. Resignation terminates your registration in the Association as well as the right to use any designation you may have been granted by HRPA.
Please note: A registrant who resigns their registration must re-apply as a new applicant and meet all the current registration requirements for registration in the Association in order to be granted registration after the resignation.
If you have any questions about resigning your registration, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Rejoining HRPA and Re-Activating a Lapsed Designation
You can re-apply for registration in HRPA at any time by completing a new registration application online and rejoin as a Practitioner or, if eligible, as an Allied Professional or as a Student.
If you previously held a designation granted by HRPA, in addition to rejoining, a separate process would apply to re-activate your designation.
Re-Activating a Lapsed Designation after a Resignation
Re-applying for registration does not automatically re-grant a designation. Registrants whose registration was resigned and who reapply for registration must meet all the requirement in place at that time in order to re-achieve their designation(s).
The only exception applies to registrant's who resigned their registration with HRPA but had their designation(s) recognized by one of the provincial HR associations in Canada. If a registrant resigns his or her registration with HRPA but has their designation(s) recognized by another provincial HR Association and maintains his or her designation(s) with that provincial HR Association, upon rejoining HRPA any designation previously granted by HRPA may be reinstated without requiring the former registrant to complete any additional requirements for the designation in place at that time.
Re-Activating a Lapsed Designation after a Revocation for Non-Renewal
The process for re-applying for registration after revocation is exactly the same as the process for re-applying after a resignation. The only difference is that registrants who held a designation when they were revoked will need to meet all of the current requirements in place at the time they rejoin HRPA regardless of whether they maintained their designation(s) through an HR association in another Canadian province.
Re-Activating a Retired Designation
If you retired your designation less than two renewal periods ago, then to reactivate it all you would need to do is contact HRPA and, if applicable, submit any outstanding Continuing Professional Development (CPD) log. If your designation was retired more than two renewal periods ago, then the same process as for rejoining HRPA after a resignation or a revocation for non-renewal would apply.
For more detailed information about re-applying for registration with HRPA or re-activating a designation, please review our Reinstatement and Re-Achievement Policy.
