Proposed Scope of Practice Expansion

Updated September 4, 2018

The College continues to work with the Government of Ontario towards the achievement of the scope of practice expansions. For more information on the Proposed scope of Practice Expansion and the e-mail that was sent to the membership on April 19, 2018 CLICK HERE.

Ongoing Communication with the Ministry
For the past several months, representatives of the College have engaged in consultations with the Ministry around making at least some of the scope of practice changes the College recommended to HPRAC. Despite the very disappointing HPRAC report, Ministry officials have indicated a willingness to talk. Discussions have been held in abeyance since early May when the writs of election were issued and the government entered its so-called “caretaker period”. We are hopeful that discussions will resume shortly.

The following are copies of the correspondence between the College and Ministry officials that describe the nature of the consultations and the general direction in which the Ministry is prepared to go, subject to the new government’s approval. The College will keep its Members advised of any future communications with the Ministry on this topic and any outcomes.
