    All professional corporations working in Yukon must register, hold a valid permit and renew it every year.

    Renewal period

    Dental and pharmacist corporations

    All dental and pharmacist corporation permits expire annually on March 31. Submit your renewal application before March 1. This ensures we can process your application before your permit expires.

    Physiotherapist and registered psychiatric nurse corporations

    All dental and pharmacist corporation permits expire annually on January 31. Submit your renewal application before January 1. This ensures we can process your application before your permit expires.
