Previously, upon submission of an application for registration and or program application, the RICC system produced a fee.  School’s were required to submit a certified cheque or money order via mail to the Ministry.  PCCs were unable to pay their submission via a credit card, so their application did not move to the queue for processing until the payment was received. 

In the current process with PARIS, the payment is immediate when using a credit card.
