MLT late fees and suspensions

06 January 2021

All MLTs in Ontario were notified of the CMLTO’s 2021 Annual Registration Renewal requirements by letter mail in October 2020, and the online renewal platform became available on November 1, 2020. The opportunity to renew the CMLTO membership without penalty ended on December 31, 2020. Members who failed to renew by the deadline were sent a Notice of Intention to Suspend from the Registrar & CEO on January 4, 2021. 

Members wishing to renew their membership can still do so until 11:59 pm EST, on Sunday, February 7, 2021, at www.cmlto-onlineservices.com, however, late fees have now been added to renewal fees. 
All MLTs who have not renewed their membership by 11:59 pm EST on Sunday, February 7, 2021, will have their certificate of registration suspended. If a member’s certificate of registration is suspended, the Registrar & CEO will notify the member and their employers by mail. Upon suspension, the certificate of registration expires, and the former member is no longer authorized to practise medical laboratory technology in Ontario. 

Further, a permanent notation of the suspension (and subsequent reinstatement, if applicable) will appear in the MLT’s record in the CMLTO Public Register. A list containing the names of all suspended medical laboratory technologists will be published in the FOCUS newsletter.
