October 10 – December 31, 2023

Registration Renewal starts on October 10, 2023 for those renewing an Active practice permit. Provisional permits may renew starting November 1, 2023.

Registrants are asked to renew by December 1. The 2023 practice permit expires on December 31, 2023.

CLPNA registrants must successfully complete the annual Registration Renewal process to:

Other Registration Types


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.

Practicing Without a Valid Practice Permit is Illegal

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 a conduct fine of $500.

Practice Permits

Most registrants will receive access to their Practice Permit on their myCLPNA.com dashboard.


  1. If a registrant does not have access to their permit immediately, it may mean that either the application needs to be reviewed by the registration staff and the registrant will be contacted within 5 business days to discuss next steps, and/or;
  2. For those who have subscribed to the Pre-Authorized Debit Plan (PAD) and who complete the online Registration Renewal Application in October, they 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.com dashboard. Registrants will not receive a Practice Permit in the mail from CLPNA.

Proof of Registration on Public Registry of LPNs

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.
