CMTO Wants to Hear from You: Proposed Amendments to By-Law No. 7 – Fees for Registration, Examinations and Other Activities of the College

At its February 12, 2019 meeting, Council approved an amendment to By-Law No. 7 – Fees for Registration, Examinations and Other Activities of the College.

The College of Massage Therapists of Ontario (CMTO) sometimes encounters difficulties in obtaining outstanding fees from registrants. These fees could include fees relating to Specified Continuing Education or Remedial Programs (SCERPs), monitoring, administrative charges and recovering costs awarded as part of a disciplinary proceeding. If the College cannot recover these fees from the individual registrant who owes them, then the remainder of the profession will ultimately be obliged to cover the cost of them.

The proposed by-law amendment, as outlined below, would mean that these costs would be added to the registrant’s annual Certificate of Registration fee.

7. In addition to the amounts set out in section 4 and 5, any outstanding balance owing to the College in respect of any decision made by a committee and any fees payable under this by-law, will be added to and included in the annual fees.

CMTO is seeking your feedback on the proposed amendment to this by-law. Prior to finalizing this proposal, the College will carefully consider your comments and suggestions, keeping in mind the College’s public interest mandate.

Please complete this brief survey to provide your feedback.

Feedback must be received no later than May 7, 2019.
