What are my renewal dues?

Your renewal dues are based on your member or student registration class*, plus the applicable tax depending on your place of residence – for example, if you live in Ontario the applicable tax rate would be 13%. Here is an overview of the 2020-2021 renewal dues:

2020–2021 Renewal Dues by ClassIn ProvinceOut of Province
CHRE$490$400
CHRL$490$400
CHRP$350$260
Practitioner$415$330
Allied Practitioner$260$175
Student$100$100
Retired$130$100

*Because we try to open our renewal window early to allow members and students ample time to complete their renewal and reach out to HRPA with any questions, renewal invoices are generated in January each year. If your member or student registration class changes after your renewal invoice has been generated, we unfortunately will not be able to adjust your invoice, but the change will be reflected in your renewal the following year.

If you require financial assistance due to unemployment, reduced hours/salary, on parental leave, on contract, or retirement, we can help. Simply apply for the Renewal Dues Assistance Program (RDAP) to have your fees reduced. For more details including the application form, please click here. Please submit your RDAP application prior to the May 31st renewal deadline so we can make sure it is processed in time.

What happens after May 31st?

While May 31st is the renewal deadline, we have a four-months grace period during which you will still be able to renew, but the following late fees will apply:

  • Students: $20
  • Renewal under the Renewal Dues Assistance Program: $50
  • Members: $100

If you missed the renewal deadline due to extenuating circumstances, the late fee may be waived. To request a waiver of the late fees, simply submit the Late Fee Waiver Request Form to registrar@hrpa.ca.

What are my options if I don’t want to renew at this time?

While we value your participation in HRPA, if you no longer wish to be part of the Association you may resign at any time by submitting a completed Resignation Form to renewal@hrpa.ca or mailing it to HRPA 200-150 Bloor Street West, Toronto, ON M5S 2X9.

If you hold a designation, we would encourage you to review our Reinstatement and Re-Achievement Policy before you resign so you are aware of the process that is involved should you decide to rejoin HRPA in the future.

Suspension and Revocation

If your renewal remains outstanding, and you do not submit a resignation, unfortunately we will be required to suspend, and eventually revoke, your registration in accordance with the Registered Human Resources Professionals Act, 2013 and the By-laws. To avoid a suspension and/or revocation, please take steps to either renew or resign as described above.
