The College has responded to the letter on “Transparency” matters sent by the Minister of Health and Long-Term Care on October 4 and a follow-up letter of Oct. 28.  The letters follow months of media stories questioning whether regulatory Colleges, such as ours, are doing everything they can to be more transparent and effective concerning their complaint processes and outcomes.  The Minister asks in his letter that Colleges share more information with the public and improve their approaches to transparency.  Each College is asked to ensure that transparency is a priority objective in their strategic plans and to “take concrete steps to develop and establish measures that will continuously increase transparency in College processes and decision-making” and make more information available to all Ontarians, including members of the College.

Colleges were asked by the Minister to respond to the Ministry letters by December 1.  On Friday November 28, CASLPO responded.  We are making that response, the Ministry letters, and a set of Transparency Principles being endorsed by Colleges available to you. See below.

Over the course of the next year, you will see from our letter that the College will be making many changes to become more transparent in terms of sharing information openly.  Some of these changes will require amendments to our By-laws, and we will be consulting with members, stakeholders and the public on these changes.  This input will be extremely valuable in formulating our plans and measures.
