- for a reduced fee
Who can apply?
Audiologists and speech-language pathologists who are registered to practice fully (not supervised or in a mentorship) in any of the other 4 participating provinces can apply for a CPP Certificate in Ontario.
CASLPO registrants who want CPP registration in another participating province must contact the regulating body in that province.
