After a candidate sends a completed Registration Form to the Licensing and Accreditation Department, an invoice will be posted in the candidate’s online account within a few business days.

Once you send the completed Registration Form to the Licensing and Accreditation Department, an invoice will be posted in your online account.

If you are requesting registration for a licensing examination beyond the registration deadline that is applicable to the examination you wish to write, you must submit your request using the Late Registration Request Form, along with any supporting documentation directly to regsupport@lso.ca.

Due to operational constraints, priority must be given to candidates who have complied with the applicable deadlines.
