College Introduction

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 Respiratory Therapists of Ontario (CRTO) has proposed amendments to its registration regulation to include additions and changes to a number of provisions including the following:

- Good character requirements;
- Internationally educated applicants;
- Labour mobility;
- Standard restrictions on graduate certificates; and
- Inactive status.

The proposed registration regulation was originally posted on the regulatory registry on January 28, 2010. After changes to the inactive status provisions were deemed substantive, the College re-circulated its proposed registration regulation for stakeholder's feedback, and has re-submitted the proposal for ministry approval.
