The CMRITO regulates medical radiation and imaging technologists in Ontario. In Ontario, regulated health professions are governed under the Regulated Health Professions Act, 1991 (RHPA) and health profession Acts (for the CMRITO, the Medical Radiation and Imaging Technology Act, 2017). This legislative framework establishes health regulatory colleges, which regulate the professions in the public interest. Health regulatory colleges are responsible for ensuring that regulated health professionals provide health services in a safe, effective and ethical manner. CMRITO does this by ensuring that medical radiation and imaging technologists are competent to practice and are practising professionally.
CMRITO’s powers and duties derive from this legislative framework. The CMRITO Council recognizes these obligations as the central mandate of the organization.
CMRITO’s mission is a statement of organizational purpose and reflects the core mandate as set out in legislation:
‘The mission of the CMRITO is to regulate the profession of medical radiation and imaging technology to serve and protect the public interest.’
CMRITO’s vision describes the organization as we work toward achieving our goals and our full potential and shapes our direction.
CMRITO is an effective and collaborative regulator committed to transparency, equity, diversity and inclusion.
CMRITO's values shape the organizational culture and are demonstrated in our decision-making and actions:
Faced with a changing health care landscape, CMRITO’s 2022-2024 Strategic Plan focuses on three key goals – evolving regulatory practices, maximizing communications impact, and increasing organizational capacity – to help the College deliver on its mandate to ensure the safe, effective and ethical practice of medical radiation and imaging technology and strengthen public protection in the province.
