A permit alone is not enough to practise nursing. You must also be entered on the Roll of the Order every year and pay your annual assessment. The Roll is the official record of OIIQ members and is updated every year. It is illegal to practise nursing or to use a reserved title without being entered on the Roll, i.e. without being a member in good standing of the Order.
For the first time you are entered on the Roll, you pay only 50% of the regular assessment. It must be understood, however, that the annual assessment is a fixed fee that is not calculated pro rata to the days or months worked.
