Self-Reporting for Registrants (Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists)

The Regulated Health Professionals Act, 1991 requires all Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists to self-report the following information to CASLPO:

Findings of Guilt

Being found guilty of any offence, be it in Ontario or any jurisdiction in or  outside of Canada.

Charges & Bail Conditions

Being charged with any offence and bail/conditions of release (imposed or  agreed to), be it in Ontario or any jurisdiction in or outside of Canada.

Professional Negligence & Malpractice

Any finding of professional negligence or malpractice.

Professional Membership, Professional Misconduct, & Incompetence

Registration with another regulatory body, regardless of whether the  registration is within Ontario or relates to health care.

Further, any current investigations and/or findings against an AUD or SLP for  professional misconduct, incompetence or incapacity must also be  reported to CASLPO. (Note: Registrants do not have to report current CASLPO investigations and/or CASLPO findings.)

How To Make A Self Report?

Registrants who are obligated to make a report to CASLPO based upon the above categories must include:

  • Your name;
  • The description of the offence or finding;
  • Date on which the finding or charge was made;
  • Name and location of the body who made the finding; and,
  • Status of any appeal (if applicable).

Such reports should be made to the Registrar and should be made as soon as reasonably possible after the finding, charge, or registration has been made.

To assist in making your report, please complete the Mandatory Report – Form. (click here).

Registrants are reminded that self reporting is mandatory and a failure to report could result in referral to the Discipline Committee. The above reporting obligations are in addition to the mandatory reporting requirements in case of sexual abuse. Please refer to the September 2018 ex.press Article (Self-Reporting: What you need to know) and September 2017 ex.press Article (The Obligation to Make Mandatory Reports).
