Information for Employers of Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists


Welcome

The College of Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists of Ontario (CASLPO) recognizes that employers can play a valuable role in protecting the public.  Employers are in a unique position to verify registration of the audiologists and speech-language pathologists that they employ.  Employers can also provide a professional and supportive environment for new graduates through CASLPO’s mentorship program.

See below for resources specifically selected to meet the needs of employers of registered audiologists and speech-language pathologists.

Mandatory Reporting - Employers and Facilities

The Regulated Health Professions Act, 1991 (“RHPA”), requires employers and facilities that employ CASLPO registrants to file a written report (referred to as a “mandatory report”) with the College of Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists of Ontario in the events described here. 

How to make a mandatory Report

The written report must contain:

1. your name and contact information,

2. name of the AUD or SLP;

3. the basis of the concerns underlying your report; and

4. if relevant, the name of any related patient(s) (note: must obtain consent when reporting sexual abuse).

To assist in making a report, please complete the Mandatory Report – Form (click here).

A report can be sent to the College via email, mail or fax to the Registrar/Director of Professional Conduct.  You are encouraged to provide copies of relevant documents
