I Want to Rejoin OACETT

Have you allowed your OACETT membership to lapse?  Do you want to join OACETT again?

You may apply for reinstatement to OACETT if you resigned your membership or the association withdrew your membership within the last five years. To apply for reinstatement, log into OACETT's online member portal and click the 'Reinstate Now' button. If you do not see the button, you will need to contact OACETT's certification division for assistance, email Once we recieve your reinstatement application, we will review your previous file for outstanding CPD or certification requirements and inform you if anything is necessary to complete before proceeding with the reinstatement. Members will be reinstated only to titles and designations that we currently have in use.

As part of your reinstatement application you will be invoiced the reinstatement fee and applicable dues. Please consult the OACETT Fee Schedule for the current amounts. The reinstatement fee is non-refundable. If your reinstatement application is unsuccessful, your dues payment will be refunded.

Applying for reinstatement is not an instantaneous process. OACETT's acceptance of the reinstatement fee and dues does not constitute acceptance of your reinstatement. Once your reinstatement application is complete your application must be approved by the IETO Board. This process could take 4-6 weeks. Only after board approval will your membership be reinstated.

You will also be informed of any applicable certification or CPD timelines that must be followed. If you were certified prior to the Professional Practice Exam (PPE) becoming a certification requirement, you will now need to pass the PPE within six months of reinstatement in order to maintain your certified status. If it has been more than five years since your OACETT membership lapsed, you must apply through the normal application process as a new applicant. OACETT cannot guarantee that you will receive the same designation you held before when you reapply.

If you are a former member who has been resigned for more than 5 years you must reapply as a new member. You will need to submit new documents to support your application. Log into the OACETT member portal and click Start Application to begin.

If you were suspended or expelled from the association for disciplinary or other reasons, consult the terms of the discipline decision or contact the Office of the Registrar for guidance at 416-621-9621 ext. 232.
