Consultations

As a part of our mandate, the College develops or revises regulations, policies, standards and practice guidelines necessary to regulate the profession.

This process often includes an amount of time where we consult with the public, members of the profession, other health regulatory colleges, professional associations and educators. The College carefully considers all feedback. Your input helps us understand the effectiveness and impact of proposed changes, and helps ensure decisions are being made in the public interest.

To receive email notice of open consultations, please send a request to communications@coto.org with "Consultations" in the subject line.
