The Public Register contains information about all CRPO members. This information is made public in accordance with the Regulated Health Professions Act, 1991 (RHPA) and CRPO’s By-laws.
The Public Register allows anyone to confirm whether a person is a member of the College, and to learn the person’s registration status, discipline history (if any) and their employment information. By accessing the Public Register, you agree to use the Public Register only for these purposes and not for marketing, commerce or any other purpose.
If you have difficulty using the Public Register or finding information about a member, please contact us.
The following information about each CRPO member is posted on the Public Register.
Note: If any of the following categories do not appear on a member’s Public Register profile, it means there is no information available. New members should check their listing on the Public Register to ensure that the information is complete and accurate. Members are responsible for advising CRPO of changes to their profile within 30 days.

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 they practise from home).
CRPO’s Quality Assurance (QA) Program is meant to provide members with a safe, confidential framework in which to grow professionally. The 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Finally, information may be withheld from the Public Register if it is obsolete and no longer relevant to a member’s suitability to practise, or if disclosure of the information may jeopardize the safety of an individual.
CRPO periodically reviews its By-laws regarding what is 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.
