Kim Smith provided the following information concerning the required bond.
The Government will require the original signed bond certificate.
No emailed or faxed copies. So after arranging the bond you will have to wait for the certificate to be sent to you and then send it to the Government with your application. This is going to take time.
No last minute applications!
Point of interest, the bond is $200.00 per year. $175.00 for CAHPI members!
