On January 1, 2024, the Registration Renewal system will close and anyone who has not renewed will have their practice permit suspended. Those still wishing to register should see Previously Registered in Alberta. Please note that those with suspended permits will be charged additional fees (see above) if registering in January. Permits not reinstated by January 31, 2024 will be cancelled.

Individuals without a valid practice permit (registration type Active/Provisional) are not authorized to use the title “LPN” or work as a Licensed Practical Nurse in Alberta, as per Schedule 10 of the Health Professions Act.

Working as an LPN without a valid practice permit constitutes unprofessional conduct and violation will subject the individual to disciplinary action including fines of $500.

Registrants who, for any reason:

  • do not plan to practice as an LPN in Alberta and
  • do not plan to return to practice in the future

should notify CLPNA of their change in status on their account. This serves as:

  • formal notification to CLPNA of non-renewal,
  • record of registrant practice hours, and
  • record of completion of Continuing Competence Learning Plan.

If a Registration Renewal Application is not completed, further reminders and suspension/cancellation notifications will be sent to the registrant as required by the Health Professions Act.

If you would like cancel your practice permit for next year please:

  1. Log in to your MyCLPNA account.
  2. Under Change My Registration, click “change.”
  3. You will be asked if you are sure you want to cancel.
  4. Fill out the form and hit “submit.”

Most registrants will receive access to their practice permit on their MyCLPNA dashboard.


  1. If a registrant does not have access to their permit immediately, it may mean that the application has not been approved or paid for, and the registrant will be contacted within five business days to discuss next steps; and/or
  2. Those who have subscribed to the PAD Plan, and who complete the online Registration Renewal Application in October, will receive access to their practice permit after their final payment is processed in mid-November.

Registrants can see and print their practice permit and tax receipt on their MyCLPNA dashboard. Registrants will not receive a practice permit in the mail from CLPNA.

Registrants and employers requiring proof of LPN registration status should access the CLPNA’s Public Registry of LPNs. The Public Registry shows the current and future registration status, advanced authorizations, and conditions.
