To apply, you must be a Full member of ADRIA and meet the application requirements. ADRIA’s Designations Committees review the applications three times per year and then forward their recommendations to ADRIC for evaluation. The application review process can take several weeks. Find out more on the ADRIC website.
ADRIA accepts designation applications 3 times/year. The application windows are as follows:
|Application Period||Deadline for Applications||Review Period|
*There is a pause on Q.Med applications for the June application period. The Q.Med applications are being revised and the new criteria will be launched September 1, 2021.
Applications will only be kept open for one additional period beyond when they are submitted (i.e., an application submitted in June will be kept open until the end of the October submission period). If the application does not meet all the requirements within this time frame, the applicant must re-submit their application.
An e-mail receipt confirmation will be sent to each applicant. If you have sent in your application and do not receive your e-mail receipt confirmation, you must contact the ADRIA office before or by the deadline. If you do not contact the ADRIA office by the deadline, your application will not be accepted.
Alberta Designation Committees
Applications for a designation from the ADR Institute of Canada (ADRIC) are first reviewed by regional designation committees. Once the application has been reviewed by the regional committee, if it meets the requirements, it will be forwarded to ADRIC’s National Designation Committees. Learn more about the Alberta Designation Committees.
The application fee is $200 plus GST. You will be invoiced by email when the ADRIA office receives your application and you can make your payment online. There will be a fee holiday for any new Chartered designation application! The $200 application fee for all applicants seeking a Chartered designation will be waived for the February and June 2021 application periods.
