Posted as an Information Item
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 (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 Medical Laboratory Technology Act, 1991, the College of Medical Laboratory Technologists of Ontario (CMLTO) is responsible for governing the self-regulating profession of medical laboratory technology in Ontario. Under these Acts, the CMLTO has the authority to make regulations on a variety of subject matters.
The CMLTO has amended its professional misconduct regulation under the Medical Laboratory Technology Act, 1991 in order to enhance the CMLTO’s ability to enforce orders or requirements which are made by committees of the College, such as the Discipline Committee and the Quality Assurance Committee, in respect of members whose practice or conduct have been found to be unsatisfactory or unsafe.
The above mentioned regulation was filed with the Registrar of Regulations on September 17, 2010 as O. Reg. 752/93, and was published in the Ontario Gazette October 2, 2010.
