Revised CMLTO Registration Regulation: Public Consultation

The College of Medical Laboratory Technologists of Ontario (CMLTO) is inviting its Registrants, stakeholders, and the public to participate in a consultation on a revised CMLTO Registration Regulation. 



Schedule 6 of Bill 106, Pandemic and Emergency Preparedness Act, 2022, outlines a requirement for all health regulatory Colleges to have an emergency class of registration.  Further, guidance provided by Dr. Karima Velji, Chief of Nursing and Professional Practice and Assistant Deputy Minister on December 14, 2022 directs health regulatory Colleges to have an emergency class of registration in place by August 31, 2023.


Based on the guidance provided by the Ministry of Health, revisions to CMLTO’s registration requirements, as defined in Ontario Regulation 207/94 under the Medical Laboratory Technology Act, 1991, were presented to the CMLTO Board of Directors at their February 7, 2023 meeting.  The Board passed a motion to approve the proposed changes to the Registration Regulation in principles, and to circulate the proposed changes to registrants for a minimum of sixty (60) days, in accordance with Section 95 (1.4) of the Health Professions Procedural Code, being Schedule 2 to the Regulated Health Professions Act, 1991. The results of the consultation will be presented to the Board of Directors at a special meeting to be held on April 20, 2023.


In accordance with Ministry direction, the revised Registration Regulations are to be provided to the Ministry by May 1, 2023.
