Notice to FD1, FD2, FPP and TSSR personal licensees: Time to renew your BAO licence
The BAO Licensee Portal is now open to renew your Funeral Director – Class 1, Funeral Director Class 2, Funeral Preplanner, and Transfer Service Sales Representative licence.
It’s your responsibility to renew your licence annually by December 31st. The personal licence renewal fee this year is $244.47, which represents a 7.6% inflationary increase, as previously advised. Please renew on time to avoid a late fee (an additional $91.68).
You are eligible to renew online if:
1. You have a valid Visa or Mastercard;
2. You have not been criminally charged or found guilty of a criminal offence since the date of your last application; and,
3. You have no conditions attached to your licence.
If you have conditions on your licence, you will receive another email shortly with your renewal form attached. If you are ineligible to renew online for any of the other reasons stated above, please contact the BAO at: (647) 483-2645 / 1-844-493-6356 or by email: PersonalLicensing@TheBAO.ca, so we can email your renewal form to you.
What if my employer is paying for my licence renewal fee?
If your employer has applied a payment credit for your individual licence renewal, that does not mean that your licence has been renewed.
Payment is one of two requirements to renew your licence.
Once you have received an email from the BAO confirming that a credit has been applied, you will also still have to log in to the Licensee Portal and renew your licence. When you reach the payment section of your online renewal application, select “Individual Renewal Credit” from the “payment type” drop-down list to apply the credit.
You need SIX (6) Continuing Education hours to renew:
Have your course information ready to enter when you renew online. If you are lacking fields to enter all the six (6) hours of courses you took, you may combine info for more than one course in a single text field. The total number of hours must be at least six (6) before you can proceed. For more information on the BAO’s Continuing Education policy and a list of approved courses, please visit our Continuing Education page.
