The CMRTO is expecting the proclamation into force of the Medical Radiation and Imaging Technology Act, 2017 (the MRITA) in the near future. Once the MRITA is in force, it will change the name of the CMRTO to the College of Medical Radiation and Imaging Technologists of Ontario (the CMRITO). It will change the name of the profession to the profession of medical radiation and imaging technology. It will also change the titles restricted only to members of the CMRITO. These titles include “medical radiation and imaging technologist” and “diagnostic medical sonographer”. It will also prohibit any person other than a member of the CMRITO from holding themselves out as a person who is qualified to practise in Ontario as a medical radiation and imaging technologist or in a specialty of medical radiation and imaging technology.
In anticipation of the coming into force of the MRITA, the CMRTO’s Council has approved, for circulation and comment, a new registration regulation to be made under the MRITA (Proposed Regulation). Among other things, the Proposed Regulation refers to the new name of the profession and streamlines the regulation so that it reflects the similarities of the registration requirements for all five specialties – radiography, radiation therapy, nuclear medicine, magnetic resonance and diagnostic medical sonography.
In accordance with the Regulated Health Professions Act, 1991, the Proposed Regulation is being circulated for 60 days to members and stakeholders for comment. Prior to finalizing the Proposed Regulation, Council will consider all comments received by the deadline, keeping in mind the CMRTO’s mandate to protect the public interest.
We wish to hear your comments on the Proposed Regulation. Please add your comments and thoughts by using the form below, or by email here.
The CMRTO Council will carefully review all comments before making any decisions regarding the Proposed Regulation. If the Proposed Regulation is approved by Council, notification will be posted to the CMRTO website.
The CMRTO will also be informed through its website, social media and Insights.
