Reinstatement of Lapsed Licence Application & Process:
Individuals looking to reinstate their cosmetology licence are required to fill out a Reinstatement of Lapsed Licence application form (found here) and submit it to the Association for review, together with copies of any additional documentation required.
Please note: A lapsed licence due to health or medical-related reasons require proof from your Family Physician or Nurse Practitioner.
Fees associated with reinstatement are noted above and in accordance with the Cosmetology Act, 2012, c. 39 at Schedule B. A non-refundable Administrative Fee plus applicable taxes is due at the time of submitting the application.
Applications can be submitted by fax (902) 468-7147, email firstname.lastname@example.org or walk-in.
Once the application and administrative fee are received, your application will be forwarded to the Association's Executive Director for review. Once the review process has been completed, you will receive a letter of outcome from the Association (processing time can take from 6-8 weeks). Should your application be denied, the letter of the outcome will include the reasons why.
Please note: Incomplete applications will expire 90 days post submission.
