FPBC registration renewal is being done through a new online registrant portal this year. The portal is a new micro-website that is part of an ongoing project to update and improve FPBC’s registrant database and associated IT infrastructure.

You need to enter a user name; it will be the email address you previously identified with FPBC as your preferred method of contact. It should be the email address where you receive emails from FPBC.
The new registration renewal site requires you to create a new password. After entering your user name (email address), click the Forgot Password link underneath the log-in boxes.
The system will email you a link to create a new password.
What the email should look like.
(Note: It may take several minutes for the email to arrive. Please check your junk or spam email folder.)
Click on the Reset Password button in the email. You will be prompted to create a new password. Your new password should be seven characters or more. It cannot include the “@” sign but may include any combination of upper- and lower-case letters, numbers, or common symbols.
Here’s a video, without audio, on how to reset your password:
Once your new password is set, go back to fpbc.in1touch.org and log in to the new renewal website and submit your privacy declaration.
Once you submit your privacy declaration, the system requires you to update your personal, employment, and contact information. The Professional Governance Act (PGA) requires FPBC to provide an online public registry of forest professionals containing specific information. Fields required for the public register are marked on the new renewal website with a chevron (^).
You must fill in all mandatory fields in order to update your profile and proceed with registration renewal. You will also have an opportunity to select your communication preferences for what information you want to receive from us via email.
Setting your preferences:
The system requires you to select your three most common areas of practice from the drop-down menu. You must complete your Competence Declaration as well. This is now an online form that automatically saves to your profile on the new site (Note: the Competence Declaration is mandatory for all registrants, except those on leave of absence, retired, or trainees — ASFIT, FIT, ASTFT, TFT, TNRP).
Complete the Indictable Offence too. This will be saved in the FPBC database.
Next, you can pay your registration fees. Fees can be paid via credit card (preferred) or cheque. Cheques must be received by the FPBC office by November 30.

How to make manual payments:
