In 2020, the Ministry of Health developed a new annual reporting tool for all health regulatory colleges that helps Ontario’s health profession regulators evaluate how well we are fulfilling our mandate to protect the public interest and continually improving accountability, transparency, and oversight. The College Performance Measurement Framework (CPMF) provides colleges with the opportunity to report on how we carry out our regulatory functions. The report was submitted to the Ministry of Health in March 2021. Click here to read CMRITO’s 2020 College Performance Measurement Framework report.
