Available as of July 4, 2022

As part of CASLPO’s work to eliminate barriers to patients seeking services across provinces, the College has entered into an agreement with the following provinces:

  1. Alberta College of Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists (ACSLPA)
  2. College of Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists of Manitoba (CASLPM)
  3. New Brunswick Association of Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists (NBASLPA)
  4. Saskatchewan Association of Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists (SASLPA)

This agreement allows registrants to provide clinical services to patients in the participating provinces:

  • either virtually or in person
  • for up to a maximum of 200 direct client/patient service hours
  • in a 12-month period
  • 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.
