College Pandemic Plan in Place

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the threat of community spread, the College of Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists of Ontario will be operating a virtual office as of March 18, 2020, until further notice.  This decision was made to minimize College staff exposure to COVID-19 to both protect our team and reduce potential service disruptions.  The College has an emergency response plan and systems in place to ensure that staff are fully equipped to provide services to the public and to registrants while working remotely. During this time, it will be best to contact staff by email.  Please note: There are no walk-in visits being accepted at the College at this time.   All College services will continue to be provided, but adjustments in service delivery may be required depending on circumstances.   Above all, please take needed precautions to remain safe and healthy during the current coronavirus crisis.  Thank you to all our registrants for your extraordinary work during these very challenging times.
