2022 Reserved Practice Outreach

As the College moves towards the September 1, 2022 implementation date of the reserved practice in applied biology, and as per the College's 2022 reserved practice outreach plan, the College 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.

Please note that the scheduled dates for some of these events is subject to change. Check back often as new dates will be added and recordings will be made available.

Illustrative Documents

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.


The College will be offering webinars throughout the summer of 2022 to inform registrants, employers and other stakeholders about the implementation of reserved practice and to answer questions about the process.

The webinar content will primarily be the same for each session (although some elements made be added based on the results of previous sessions), so you won’t need to attend every session:

Each session will offer you the opportunity to ask questions about reserved practice and the implications for practitioners, employers and the natural resource sector as a whole. Please verify when registering that you have selected the right session for your schedule.

If you’d like to book a meeting with the College for your firm or colleagues to discuss reserved practice, please contact the College office.

In-Person Information Sessions

From time to time, the College will also host in-person information sessions which will present the material from the webinars while also offering greater opportunities to speak with College representatives regarding the implementation of reserved practice. 


Video Recordings

The College will provide information videos for registrants and a recording of the webinar for those that can't attend live on any of the dates. When the recordings become available, they will appear here.
