All medical radiation technologists are required to meet the standards of the profession in order to practise in Ontario.
In order to practise medical radiation technology in Ontario, a medical radiation technologist must be registered with the CMRTO.
Registration with the CMRTO assures the public that the MRT has met the entry to practice requirements as defined by the registration regulations made under the MRT Act.
The goal of the CMRTO QA program is to assure the public of the quality of practice of medical radiation technology by maintaining MRTs' performance at a level that meets the profession's standards of practice and by promoting continuing competence and continuing improvement among members.
The CMRTO has a complaints and discipline process which provides safeguards for both the MRT and the individual complainant, whether a member of the public or a member of another health care profession.
