Health Human Resource Reports

The College of Medical Laboratory Technologists of Ontario (CMLTO) captures demographic information related to its membership during initial registration and annual membership renewal as part of its mandate and as required by legislation. Health human resource planning in many cases is informed and supported by health professional demographic and practice-specific data.

The CMLTO is involved in two ongoing initiatives in support of broader based health human resource planning for medical laboratory technology through the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI) and the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC).

The Medical Laboratory Technologist Database (MLTDB) is administered by CIHI and has collected information from regulatory bodies and professional associations across Canada with the aim to:

“provide standardized comparative data and reports on demographic, geographic, education and employment information for medical laboratory technologists in Canada.”

The Health Professions Database (HPDB) is administered by HealthForceOntario, a branch of the MOHLTC. The database, once populated will:

“provide standardized, consistent and comparable demographic, geographic, educational, and employment information on all of the regulated allied health professionals in Ontario.”

The CMLTO also contributes to health human resource planning by reporting on such areas as medical laboratory technologist (MLT) practice, employment facility and status, and the provision of MLT education. This annual analysis is presented in the CMLTO Health Human Resource Exploration reports.  To learn more about these CMLTO reports, please contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
