Accountability

How well are Ontario’s health professional regulatory colleges protecting the public interest?” This is the question the Ontario Ministry of Health asked health profession regulators to answer when it developed the College Performance Measurement Framework (CPMF).

Health regulatory colleges exist to protect the public interest. We fulfill our mandate by developing and implementing a system of rigorous checks and balances. In addition to regulations and by-laws, guided by our vision, values, and principles, results are delivered, including:

  • Establishing and enforcing standards of practice
  • Compelling registered audiologists and speech-language pathologists to annually adhere to quality assurance measures;
  • Addressing concerns and investigating complaints about professionals;
  • Licensing only individuals who truly have the knowledge and skills to treat patients in competent, reliable and professional ways
  • Providing an online public register, to provide patients, families and caregivers with the ability to access a list of registered (licensed) audiologists and speech-language pathologists.

Patients can find important information including, registration status, restrictions on practice, or disciplinary history, if any.
Also, searching the register enables the public to find audiologists or speech-language pathologists to provide services.

Website visitors are encouraged to review this section including CASLPO’s Annual Reports, College Performance Measurement Framework report submissions to the Ministry of Health, Strategic Plans, ex.press eNewsletters, brochures, posters and handouts, videos and more.
