Proposed emergency class registration

Background

In April 2022, the Ontario government enacted Bill 106, the Pandemic and Emergency Preparedness Act, 2022, to strengthen our healthcare system’s ability to respond in the event of a public health emergency.

In October 2022, amendments were made to the Regulated Health Professions Act, 1991 (RHPA), requiring all health colleges to develop regulation for a new emergency class certificate of registration. The emergency class certificate of registration will enable a temporary but expedited path to registration for healthcare professionals during a declared emergency circumstance.

In accordance with the RHPA and Registration Requirements Regulation (O. Reg. 508/22), features of the emergency class regulation must include:

Colleges must submit their proposed regulation amendments to the Ontario Ministry of Health by May 1, 2023.
