  1. Determine if you're eligible

    All denturists practising in Yukon must register and hold a current Yukon licence.

    We accept new applications on an ongoing basis. You only need to apply once. But you must renew your licence every year.

    All denturist licences expire annually on March 31.

     

    Eligibility

    You're eligible to register and apply for a denturist licence if:

    • you hold a current denturist licence in another Canadian jurisdiction; and
    • you're in good standing in that jurisdiction.

    We may not approve you for registration or licensing if you've had any complaints, disciplinary or criminal action against you.

  2. Complete the application form

    Complete all sections of the application form. Do not leave a section blank. You may enter "not applicable" when it's relevant.

    Tips

    • Make sure to mark on the top of the form whether you're applying for:
      • a resident; or
      • a non-resident licence.
    • Choose non-resident if you will practice in Yukon for less than a 3-month period in a licensing year.
    • We may return incomplete applications.
  3. Provide all required supporting documents

    Gather together the following documents and provide them with your complete application.

    Current photo ID

    • Provide 1 copy of a piece of photo ID.
    • The ID must be issued by a territorial, provincial or federal government body.
    • The ID must show your current legal name.
    • We do not accept a healthcare card as a form of ID.

    Certificate(s) of standing

    • Request a certificate of standing from the regulatory body of each of the other Canadian jurisdictions you're registered in.
    • You must provide a certificate for each jurisdiction.
    • Each certificate must be dated no more than 90 days before the date you submit your application.
    • Have each regulatory body send the certificate directly to Professional Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (PLRA).
    • We do not accept certificates of standing submitted by applicants.
