This is how Ontario health regulators protect the public:

  • We set the requirements for becoming a regulated health professional in Ontario. Only qualified health professionals are registered to practise.
  • We set and enforce practice standards so that you and your family can receive safe, ethical, and competent healthcare from qualified health professionals.
  • We have quality assurance programs so that registered health professionals keep their knowledge and skills up-to-date so they can provide safe, ethical and competent healthcare throughout their career.
  • We provide public registers so that you can verify that your healthcare professional is qualified to practise.
  • We are there to help should you have a concern and complaint about your healthcare professional.
