About the CMLTA


The CMLTA has frequent opportunities for Regulated Members to volunteer on Council, the Legislation Sub-Committee of Council, and the Regulated Member Resource List (RMRL). The CMLTA Council governs the activities of the organization and implements and oversees mandated programs and services in accordance with the Health Professions Act (HPA); articulates the CMLTA’s mission, vision, and core values; and sets the strategic direction with public protection and patient safety as the guiding principles.

The Legislation Sub-Committee
Is a working group of the CMLTA Council and is comprised of nine Regulated Members consisting of the Council Vice President and eight (8) volunteer Regulated Members at large. The purpose of this group is to revise and/or draft CMLTA Bylaws, policies, and other CMLTA documents for Council consideration and approval, and to interpret the HPA and the Medical Laboratory Technologists Profession Regulation for the purpose of application and revision of policy regarding registration, continuing competence, and complaints of unprofessional conduct. If you have a desire to learn more about the legislation supporting the CMLTA and you have the ability to commit to a term, you may be a good fit for the Legislation Sub-Committee. 

The Regulated Member Resource List
The CMLTA is looking for individuals interested in volunteering on the Regulated Member Resource List (RMRL). The RMRL consists of volunteers appointed by Council to serve on Hearing Tribunals in complaints of unprofessional conduct and on Complaint Review Committees. As a member of a Hearing Tribunal, RMRL members hear evidence and witness testimony from both parties (the Regulated Member and the CMLTA) regarding the charges and alleged unprofessional conduct of an individual. They then render findings of innocence or guilt and appropriate sanctions in the case of a culpable party. All RMRL members must develop a keen understanding of the administrative tribunal community and as such, are encouraged to enroll in educational courses such as principles of administrative law, evidence, effective witnesses, and decision writing. The CMLTA offers expense reimbursement for all educational events that enhance an RMRL member’s knowledge of current trends in administrative justice. As this volunteer role requires a significant investment in training and education in the field of administrative law, there is an expectation that members of the RMRL will serve on this committee for many years to hone their knowledge and understanding of leading administrative law practices. Please review the RMRL FAQs for additional information.

Education and Training Resources

Foundation of Administrative Justice (FOAJ)
The FOAJ provides essential educational courses for Canadian tribunals and the people who appear before them. These administrative tribunals have a tremendous influence on the day-to-day lives of Canadians, arguably even more so than the criminal or civil courts do.

Council of Canadian Administrative Tribunals (CCAT)
CCAT is a national non-profit organization dedicated to promoting excellence in administrative justice. It provides a forum for discussion, education, research, and policy development in the field of administrative justice.

The sidebar on the right contains links to additional information regarding volunteering with the CMLTA; including FAQs, councillor handbook, and a volunteer application.

The CMLTA is appreciative of its volunteers for donating their time and expertise and demonstrating a commitment to the CMLTA and the medical laboratory science profession.
