Apply for Renewal Online

You have two options to renew your certification credential in 2016.

  • Renew by continuous learning: April 11 to November 30, 2016
  • Renew by exam: Application period now closed.

Please note: You can apply for certification only between these dates.

If you were due to renew in spring 2016, CNA has extended the deadline. You can continue to use your credential in good standing until November 30, 2016.

To make your online renewal easier, we suggest you have the following items on hand:

  • Your CNA certification number (if you don’t know it, please contact certification@cna-aiic.ca)
  • Your RN licence number
  • The name, contact information and e-mail address of your endorser
  • A credit card
  • If renewing by continuous learning, a list of activities completed during your five-year renewal period

Ontario and Quebec RNs: To be eligible for a discount on certification renewal fees, you must be a CNA member. If you are not a member, you can become an independent member for only $54.95 (plus applicable taxes).
