College of Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists of Ontario (CASLPO) Professional Misconduct Regulation

Regulation Number(s):
O.Reg 749/93
Instrument Type:
Regulation - LGIC
Bill or Act:
Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology Act, 1991
Summary of Proposal:
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.

The College of Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists of Ontario (CASLPO) is proposing to amend its professional misconduct regulation made under the Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology Act, 1991, to ensure it is reflective of the current practice environment.

The amendments propose to remove some sections that are no longer relevant to the professions.

The proposed regulation amendments are subject to prior review by the Minister of Health and the approval of the Lieutenant Governor in Council (LGIC).
Analysis of Regulatory Impact:
The proposed regulation amendment is not anticipated to impose any increased administrative costs to members and/or businesses as they deal specifically with outcomes from non-compliance with legislative and regulatory requirements when practicing in Ontario. The proposed regulation amendments will not require members of the College to incur costs for training or education. However, members will need to review the regulation to understand the new responsibilities and accountabilities.
