The College continues implementation of the reserved practice in applied biology and will be conducting outreach to registrants, employers, governments and other stakeholders in a variety of formats. Please review this page for information about the ways that you can learn more about reserved practice, its implications for practitioners, and its effects on the natural resource sector as a whole.
Registrants should review the illustrative documents when they have time, especially if they are planning to attend a webinar or in-person informational session.
The College has posted a full library of illustrative documents regarding reserved practice for applied biology. This library covers topics such as the definitions of regulated and reserved practices, the pathways to registration with the College, and areas of intersection between applied biology and other professions in the natural resource sector. There are also FAQs covering a variety of topics related to reserved practice.
From time to time, the College will also host in-person information sessions and webinars which offer greater opportunities to speak with College representatives regarding the implementation of reserved practice.
