Appealing Registration Decisions

As an applicant, you have the right to appeal any decision regarding the outcome of your pre-assessment for eligibility to register submission, individual assessment submission and your application for registration with the College.

If you disagree with a registration related decision, you can request a review of your file by the College’s Registration Committee. This committee meets four times a year to assess the qualification of applicants to the College.

If you disagree with a decision by the Registration Committee related to your application for registration, you can appeal the decision by sending your request in writing (not by email) to both the Registration Committee and the Health Professions Appeal and Review Board (HPARB), an independent review board established under the Regulated Health Professions Act (RHPA).

HPARB does not review appeals related to pre-assessment for eligibility or the results of individual assessment submissions. These two types of reviews may be appealed to the College’s Registration Committee. The results of an individual assessment may also be appealed to Human Resource Systems Group (HRSG) for a fee or the College’s Registration Committee free of charge.  

Your request for an appeal must be received within 30 days after the date you received notice of the decision. In the case of HPARB, you can ask for either a hearing (you and a College representative appear in person to present evidence to the Board) or a review (Board members review written submissions from the applicant and the College). 

You can contact the Registration Committee and the Health Professions Appeal and Review Board at the addresses below:

Registration Committee

The Registration Committee reviews applications from applicants who want to become members of the College but do not meet one or more of the registration requirements.

After considering the application and submissions, the Registration Committee may direct the Registrar to:

  • issue a certificate of registration
  • issue a certificate of registration with terms, conditions and limitations
  • issue a certificate of registration if the applicant completes specified training or additional exams
  • refuse to issue a certificate of registration.

Application-related orders of the Registration Committee can be appealed to the Health Professional Appeal and Review Board. An Order of the Review Board can be appealed further to the Divisional Court of Ontario.
