What information is NOT on the Public Register, and why not?
The Public Register enables the public to make informed choices in seeking the services of CRPO Members. For this information to be effective, it must be relevant and accurate. Through its processes, the College collects and retains information about Members that is not on the Public Register. Some of this information, such as the Member’s home address, may not be relevant in choosing an RP (unless s/he practises from home).
The College’s Quality Assurance (QA) Program is meant to provide Members with a safe, confidential framework in which to grow professionally. The Regulated Health Professions Act (RHPA) includes special confidentiality provisions designed to protect QA Program information. For this reason, information obtained about Members through the QA Program does not appear on the Public Register.
Finally, information may be withheld from the Public Register if it is obsolete and no longer relevant to the Member’s suitability to practise, or if disclosure of the information may jeopardize the safety of an individual.
CRPO is currently reviewing its by-laws as part of an ongoing initiative to increase the transparency of health profession regulation in Ontario. The College will consider whether additional information about Members, including complaints-related information, should be posted on the Public Register. CRPO will conduct public consultations before any changes are made.
Note: CRPO endeavours to update the Public Register within a reasonable period of time; however, a delay may occur before updated information is published online. While the College aims to ensure that the information posted on the Public Register is correct, CRPO does not represent, warrant or guarantee its accuracy, and accepts no liability or obligation relating thereto.
