The Annual Practice Fee for Teaching Licences must be paid each year to maintain a valid teaching certificate in BC. $80 of your April pay will automatically be deducted by the VSB who will submit your fee directly to the Teacher Certification Branch. If you do not have a pay advice for April 30, you will need to pay this fee directly by May 31 to avoid late fees.
