Summary of Proposal:
In Ontario, the regulation of health professions is based on a self-governance model. There are 21 health regulatory colleges governing 23 health professions under the Regulated Health Professions Act, 1991 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. While regulatory amendments (e.g., registration requirements, professional misconduct, etc) require the review of the Minister of Health and Long-Term Care and approval by the Lieutenant Governor in Council, health regulatory colleges are given the authority in legislation to make regulations on a variety of subject matters.
Summary of Proposal
The College of Dental Technologists of Ontario (CDTO) is proposing amendments to its registration regulation that include:
• Provisions to comply with the Ontario Labour Mobility Act, 2009.
• Provisions that broaden the requirements for applicant whose certificate of registration has lapsed.
• Hour requirements for the practical training.
• A provision to require liability insurance.
• General housekeeping items.
The College is currently circulating the proposed registration regulation amendments to its members and other stakeholders for feedback.
