8. An application for recognition of a home childcare providers association is made in the form of a written document addressed to the Commission, and must be sent together with duly dated membership forms. On receipt of the application, the Commission sends a copy to the Minister along with any information it considers appropriate.
The application must specify the territory concerned, be authorized by a resolution of the association and be signed by representatives specially mandated for that purpose.
Within 20 days after receiving a copy of the application, the Minister sends to the Commission and the association a list of the names and contact information of all home childcare providers operating in the territory for which recognition has been requested.
The Commission may, by any means it considers appropriate, make a copy of the application available to the public for consultation.
