I'm Expired, Now what?

We are excited to welcome you back! To make it easy to renew, the length of time your BCRPA Fitness Registration has been expired determines the steps you'll need to take to renew. 

Note: BCRPA's insurance policy does not cover leaders when their BCRPA Fitness Registration has expired.

Fitness Program Policies cover absences related to Parental and Medical Leave, CEC approvals, payment information, processing fees and refunds and expirations. 

If you require more information or have any questions about renewing your fitness registration, please send us an email.
