Professional Certification

Reconsiderations and Appeals

You may appeal the assessment of your credentials as it relates to certification, salary classification and recognition of experience.  There are two steps to the appeal process. 

The first step before pursuing a formal appeal is a Request for Reconsideration which must be submitted within 45 days of the date of the letter you received from the Professional Certification Unit advising you of your evaluation outcome.  There is no fee associated with this step of the appeal process.

A formal Request for Appeal may be made following a Reconsideration decision if you feel the department has made an error in interpreting and/or applying the regulatory and/or policy requirements.  A Request for Appeal must be accompanied by a fee of $99.00 and must be submitted within 45 days of the date of the Reconsideration decision.

The provincial body that hears appeals will be charged with ascertaining whether there has been an error in interpreting and/or applying the regulatory requirements. If the appeal is successful, the fee will be refunded.

The following links provide more information regarding the appeal process and access to the forms for each step of the process.
