Maintain Your Registration

Registration

You must be registered with CMRITO in order to be legally authorized to practice in medical radiation and imaging technology in Ontario. Registration is an important regulatory tool to ensure the protection of the public by allowing only those individuals who have met the registration requirements, including an approved educational program and certification examination, to be registered and legally authorized to practise.

The CMRTIO issues certificates of registration in five specialties:

  • radiography

  • radiation therapy

  • nuclear medicine

  • magnetic resonance

  • diagnostic medical sonography (which includes the three areas of practice: general, cardiac and vascular)

It is a condition on every member’s certificate of registration that the member must be educated and experienced in every area in which they practice.

CMRITO members are authorized to practise in more than one specialty provided the member has satisfied the registration requirements for each specialty and is registered in each specialty.

It is a condition of a specialty certificate of registration that, within every five year period after issuance of the certificate, you engage in competent practice as a medical radiation and imaging technologist in at least one of the specialties in which you hold a certificate of registration. This means that if you hold a certificate of registration in two specialties – for example, radiography and magnetic resonance – then you can maintain both specialties on your certificate of registration provided that you are engaged in competent practice in at least one of the specialties within the five-year period.

It is also a condition of a certificate of registration that you provide the College with details of any of the following that relates to you and that occurs or arises after your registration:

  • A finding of guilt for any offence, including any criminal offence and any offence related to the regulation of the practice of the profession. Offences relate to findings of guilt made by a court that are typically punishable by a fine or jail term

  • A finding of professional misconduct, incompetency or incapacity, in Ontario in relation to another health profession or in another jurisdiction in relation to the profession or another health profession

  • An investigation or a proceeding involving an allegation of professional misconduct, incompetency or incapacity, in Ontario in relation to another profession or in another jurisdiction in relation to the profession or another health profession.

It is also a condition of a certificate of registration that you maintain professional liability insurance or protection against professional liability in accordance with the requirements set out in the by-laws of the College.
