Renew your accreditation
Accreditation renewals take place annually. An invoice will be issued to the CASC Company from CANASA’s National Office three months prior to the CASC Company’s renewal date along with a declaration form. A CASC Company interested in renewing its accreditation is expected to submit the signed declaration form and pay the applicable fees by its renewal date.
The declaration form must be completed and signed by the CASC Representative and sent to CANASA’s National Office along with any new or updated documentation. This documentation may include, but is not limited to, the following:
- the company’s registration or incorporation certificate, if there are any changes to either
- Criminal Reference Checks for new staff members
- a renewed Workers' Compensation Plan and clearance certificate
- ATC1 certificates for staff who have completed the course during the year
- a renewed insurance certificate
If a CASC Company allows its accreditation to lapse six months from its renewal date, its accreditation will be cancelled and the company will need to reapply to the CASC program if it wishes to be accredited.
All documentation required for renewals will be verified for adherence to criteria. A copy of all documentation will be retained by both the CANASA and ULC offices.
If ULC reports that a CASC Company continues to meet eligibility criteria, the CASC Company has two months to pay the renewal fee from the date it receives renewal notification in order for its accreditation to continue uninterrupted. If payment is not received by CANASA within two months of the renewal notification, the CASC Company will be put on probation and will have 90 days to make a payment. If payment is not received by CANASA by the end of the 90-day probation period, the CASC Company’s accreditation will be cancelled.
If ULC reports that a CASC Company does not continue to meet eligibility criteria, the CASC Company will be notified and placed on probation. The CASC Company will be given 90 days to meet the criteria. If any criteria are not met at the end of the 90-day probation period, the CASC Company’s accreditation will be cancelled and the balance of the CASC Company’s fees will be reimbursed.
If a CASC Company wishes to discontinue participation in the CASC program, it must notify CANASA in writing at least 30 days prior to its renewal date.
A company that wishes to reapply after its accreditation has been cancelled must wait one full calendar year from the date of cancellation.
