Maintaining your CMRITO registration in good standing is one of the most important legal obligations for all medical radiation and imaging technologists practising in Ontario. Under the Regulated Health Professions Act, all CMRITO members are required to renew their registration each year in order to be legally authorized to practise the profession of medical radiation and imaging technology in Ontario.
The due date for your renewal is your birthday. Notices are emailed to current members 30 to 60 days before the member's birthday.
The annual fee is $531.10 ($470.00 fee, $61.10 HST). You may pay by credit card (Visa or MasterCard), or by Interac (select financial organizations only).
You must renew your registration online through theMAP (Member & Applicant Portal). You must complete the annual declaration questions regarding professional liability insurance, professional conduct, and compliance with the quality assurance program, and you must update your education and work information in the register for the Ministry of Health health professions database.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, to reduce the burden on members, CMRITO implemented a one-time COVID-19 fee credit of $101.70 ($90 + HST) which will be automatically deducted from your annual registration fee at the time you pay it, unless you have previously received it e.g. if you reinstated your registration earlier in 2020. You can see the status of your fee credits and payments through the MAP, by clicking on the tab ‘Fee Credits and Paid Fees’.
The CMRITO has also implemented an emergency policy eliminating the late penalty fee during the COVID-19 pandemic. This policy applies from March 1, 2020 to September 30, 2020. You will have up to three months after your birthday to renew your registration without penalty. If you have not renewed your registration within three months from your birthday, then your certificate of registration would be suspended for failure to pay fees.
The late penalty fee will be in effect again starting October 1, 2020. If payment is received 14 days after the due date, the registration fee including penalties will be $663.88 ($470.00 fee, $117.50 late fee, $76.38 HST) provided that payment is received within three months of your birthday.
If you are not currently working in Ontario, or you're on a temporary leave, you may wish to resign your registration and then reinstate when you return to work. CMRITO has a streamlined reinstatement process for members who reinstate within two years from the date of resignation. This process does not require you to provide signed confirmation of your competence from a supervisor or complete the jurisprudence course and quiz before reinstating. The reinstatement application is available in theMAP.
If you know that you will be retiring or taking a leave within three months of your birthday, then you can notify us now of your wish to resign on a future date within the three month period following your birthday. You can resign by submitting an online Resignation Notice available in theMAP.
The registration fee is non-refundable, however, if you resign prior to the next due date (your birthday) you will receive a fee credit pro-rated from the date on which you resigned to your renewal date. The fee credit will be applied automatically to your registration fee if and when you are reinstated, provided that you are reinstated within five years from the date of your resignation.
If you do not pay or resign your membership within three months after your birthday, your certificate of registration will be suspended for failure to pay fees and you will no longer be legally authorized to work in the profession in Ontario.
To reinstate with the CMRITO following suspension for failure to pay fees you must pay a penalty equal to the annual fee and a re-registration fee equal to the annual fee prorated by the percentage of the year remaining to your birthday, provided that the pro-rated amount is no less than 50% of the annual fee, and meet the registration requirements of the CMRITO. The fee for reinstatement following suspension will be no less than $796.65 and no more than $1062.20 depending upon your individual circumstances.
