Annual Registration Fees
The annual registration fee is currently $85 plus GST ($89.25). The Board of Directors of the SPTRB will approve the 2023-2024 Annual Registration fee at their meeting in May 2023.
A hallmark of professional regulation is operational and financial independence. To ensure financial independence members of the profession provide the funds for the organization’s operations, typically through payment of an annual registration fee. As a member of a professionally regulated profession, each registered teacher is responsible for completing their annual registration and paying the associated registration fee or ensuring that their fee is paid on their behalf by their employer as per the Provincial Collective Agreement (if applicable).
To facilitate the registration process, we have included instructions below depending on your employment category and have posted answers to frequently asked questions (FAQs) below.
Contract Teachers (continuing, replacement, or temporary): teachers employed full or part time by a school division, including out of scope employees whose employment positions requires teaching certificates; Annual Registration fees paid by employing school division.
Substitute Teachers: teachers who are on a school division substitute teacher list and have worked at least one day; Annual Registration fees paid by their employing school division.
All Other Teachers: teachers who are not employed by one of the 27 publicly funded school divisions - this includes teachers employed by independent schools, First Nations, custody and care facilities, and post-secondary institutions (universities, polytechnics, regional colleges, etc.); Annual Registration fee paid by the registered teacher within 30 days of receipt of invoice from SPTRB in the fall.

2023-2024 Annual Registration Fee Payment Process (*NOTE CHANGES*)
Annual Registration will open for the 2023-2024 school year on May 1, 2023. There is a new Registration Renewal form, so please read the instructions carefully!
If your employment changes after you have registered for the school year, you must update your employment information via your Educator Profile.
You must be registered for the current school year PRIOR to your first day of employment to be considered current and in compliance with provincial legislation. If you anticipate that you will be employed during the 2023-2024 school year, please submit your Registration Renewal form no later than August 31, 2023, to ensure accurate reporting between the SPTRB and your employer, and avoid being issued an individual invoice.
Registrants will NOT be required to pay at the time of registration if registering between May 1, 2023 and December 31, 2023. If your first day of employment falls after December 31, 2023, thus you are registering for the current school year after January 1, 2024, you will be required to make payment of the registration fee in order to submit your renewal form and contact your employer to inquire about reimbursement.
The School Divisions and the SPTRB will complete a reconciliation of educators and registration fees on a monthly basis during the Fall term. Anyone not reported to the SPTRB as 'employed by a Publicly Funded School Division' will be issued an individual invoice for payment within 30 days. Those who are reported as employed, will have their Educator Profiles marked as having had their registration fee paid by employer (under the Receipts tab).
You must have worked at least one day for your registration fee to be covered by employer.
If you are required to make payment via individual invoice, a receipt will be available for download/printing from your Educator Profile (under the Receipts tab). Failure to pay the invoice within 30 business days will result in your Registration Renewal being cancelled.
Certified Teachers Employed by Other Employers (Additional Information):
If you are employed outside of the Publicly Funded School Divisions, please confirm with your employer if they require you to maintain a current Registration as part of your employment contract. If yes, complete the Registration Renewal form annually.
Individual invoices will be issued following the SPTRB/School Division reconciliation periods during the Fall term. Watch your email (the one indicated on your SPTRB Educator Profile) for notification of issuance of your invoice. If the invoice is not paid within 30 days, your registration will be cancelled.
Once paid, a receipt will be available for download (under the Receipts tab) from your Educator Profile.
Note: some 'Other Employers' participate in the registration fee reconciliation process along with the 27 School Divisions, and therefore no individual invoice will be issued to you during the year. If you are an 'Other
Employer' interested in learning more about the reconciliation/invoicing option for your organization/school, please email email@example.com for details.
