CASLPO works on the assumption that all of Ontario's registered audiologists and speech-language pathologists get all of our emails. Audiologists and speech-language pathologists are required to receive information from the College regarding registration renewal, Quality Assurance requirements, practice advice and other important College programs and updates.
Note: the term “member” and “registrant” are used interchangeably throughout CASLPO’s website and documents. Both terms are synonymous to “member” as defined in the Regulated Health Professions Act, 1991, the Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology Act, 1991, and the Regulations under those Acts.
To enable all important information from the College to reach you via email, be sure to:
We strive to keep communication relevant and to a minimum. Thank you.

The Canadian Alliance of Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology Regulators (CAASPR), of which this College is a member, announced that the National Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology Competency Profiles, in both official languages, were approved by the CAASPR Board at their meeting in Edmonton, Alberta on April 29, 2018.
The National Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology Competency Profiles are a key component of CAASPR's Centralization and Capacity Building Project, a project funded by Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC).
