What if I don't renew?

Failure to submit a completed renewal by the deadline will result in your license being suspended. This means that you’re no longer legally able to practice as a Dispensing Optician, Contact Lens Fitter or provide any restricted activities such as sight testing. 
 
Members of the public can ensure a Licensed Optician is properly registered with the COBC by using our online registry or by asking to see a registration certificate which should be displayed in a prominent location at the workplace.
 
When do I get my receipt?
 
Receipts are emailed once you submit your online renewal. If you choose to pay by credit card, an email receipt is automatically generated. Any other payment type requires COBC to manually generate a receipt.
