The practice will interest regulators who wish to present information about their registration requirements in a comprehensive way.

There is a distinct, clearly marked section entitled Registration Requirements on the website of the College of Chiropractors of Ontario (CCO).

Within that section, details are grouped by registration requirement. For each registration requirement, there is:

  • an explanation of what applicants need to do to demonstrate the requirement

  • a brief rationale for its relevance and necessity

This webpage provides information on key areas such as education, the legislation and ethics exam, and qualifications assessment agencies. This allows easy access for applicants who need further information. CCO also specifies the documentation requirements and fees for applicants.

Providing all of this key information on one webpage facilitates a quicker and clearer understanding of the overall requirements, financial considerations and process.
