       Designation and the reinstatement approval letter are issued and mailed to your address. The review process takes about 2-4 
       weeks from the date the application is received.

III. PD Requirement

The pro-rated annual accreditation fee covers the period from the reinstatement approval date to the applicant's membership annual renewal date ( a maximum of 12 months).

The reinstatement application fee is payable to TESL Ontario and can be paid by cheque, VISA, MasterCard, American Express, or cash (in person).
