Remember: You cannot work as a Medical Laboratory Technologist in Nova Scotia unless your license is active.
Our licence renewal opens September 1 and closes December 31. Please note late fees are applied after December 1. Fees
Renewal reminders are sent out automatically. Please ensure you always have a current email address on file.
Once your application is approved you will no longer receive a reminder.
MLTs On Payroll Deduction
MLTs on payroll deduction through their employer (NSH, IWK, CBS) are required to submit a renewal application. Select your payroll deduction provider under "Choose Your Method of Payment". If you do not submit your application before December 1, you are subject to late fees as noted above.
If you were on a leave of absence in the current year, check with your HR department to confirm your deductions were submitted.
Begin Payroll Deduction
Would you like to have your NSCMLT and CSMLS fees deducted from your pay throughout the year? Please contact your HR department to begin the process.
Going on Leave (parental, short or long term) or Retiring
You are required to renew your licence if you are planning on working at any time during the year. That includes a few days or weeks. Your licence is valid for the entire year. NSCMLT does not offer any short-term licence option at this time. If you are not going to renew for the following year, you must complete a notice of non-practice Change of License Status Form
Your Accountability As A Licensed MLT
As self regulated professionals, all MLTs are responsible to renew their licence yearly to legally practice as a medical laboratory technologist. NSCMLT will send out reminders to renew and notifcation when your renewal is complete to your email on file. Working as an MLT without a practising licence may result in a professional misconduct complaint.
To Avoid Delays in Renewal Approval:
All continuing competency requirements (TeKnowledge.ns) must be current as of December 31. If your TeKnowledge.ns is due in the current year, you must have your submission approved before your renewal application will be approved.
Renewals cannot be approved without Professional Liability Insurance (PLI) for the renewal year.
Please read each declaration question carefully and ensure your answers are true and accurate. All the declarations do NOT have the same response. Your answers are legally binding.
Ensure all your Employment details are current, such as your position status, areas of practice, practice hours etc.
