Important Registration Information

As you begin to register yourself, and/or others, please note that everyone registered must have an account on the BCRPA website before you begin the registration process. If you do not have an online account, you can create one now.

Note: the BCRPA website is mobile-friendly.

Consolidating Invoices:

If several individuals in your organization will be registering for the event themselves, but you want to pay one invoice, please ask the individuals to select "Cheque's in the Mail" at checkout. Administrators are then asked to email with the names of those who have registered, so we may consolidate and send you one invoice.

Group Registrations:

For a faster, more efficient registration process, we recommend each individual register for the event themselves. If this is not possible, please follow the instructions below for group registration process.

  1. If you are registering on behalf of other staff, and they ALL have BCRPA website accounts, you can proceed with registration. During the registration process, you will have the option to add an additional person. Please be patient when you select this option as the system is loading information. Do NOT hit the back button or refresh the page.
  2. If you are registering on behalf of others, and some or all do not have their own BCRPA website account you can fill out this form (Excel; Word; PDF), email it to and accounts will be set up for them. Account information will then be returned to you so you can complete their online registration.

Do not proceed with registration until you receive confirmation from BCRPA that accounts have been set-up.

Planning Tools for Registration of Large Groups

To assist you with multiple registrations, we have created a planning sheet (Excel; Word; PDF) on which you can record the session and day choices for each person. We hope this will help expedite your online registration process.

Other useful registration tools available to you are:
