Change of Status
If you want to change your practicing status (i.e. from practicing to non-practicing) or your licence level in Saskatchewan (i.e. from PCP to ACP), follow these steps to complete your change of status.
1. Change of Status Application
Sign in to your SCoP Member Account and submit the Change of Status form found under the Applications tab.
2. Change of Status Fee
The change of status fee is $50.00. If you are moving from non-practicing to practicing status, you will also be charged the applicable practicing fees.
