College Introduction

In Ontario, the regulation of health professions is based on a self-governance model. There are 26 health regulatory colleges governing 28 health professions under the Regulated Health Professions Act, 1991 (RHPA) and their respective health profession Acts. Health regulatory colleges operate at arm's length from the provincial government and independently administer their own internal processes.

Under the RHPA and the Naturopathy Act, 2007, the College of Naturopaths of Ontario (CONO) is responsible for governing the self-regulating profession of naturopathy in Ontario. Under these Acts, the CONO has the authority to make regulations on a variety of subject matters, including inspections, subject to the prior review by the Minister of Health and Long-Term Care and the approval of the Lieutenant Governor in Council.

Summary of Inspection Regulation

The Inspection Regulation of the CONO supports continuous quality improvement through the development and maintenance of requirements for all premises in which compounding for and the administration of Intravenous Infusion Therapy (IVIT) are performed. The CONO recognizes the importance of maintaining competency for certain procedures that are associated with an increased risk, and has developed the Inspection Regulation to ensure the safety and quality of care for the people of Ontario who choose to access these services.
