Code of Ethics

The CMLTA Code of Ethics sets the ethical principles by which every medical laboratory technologist (MLT) is held accountable. The Code of Ethics is used in conjunction with the Standards of Practice in guiding an MLT’s practice and decision making. The development and maintenance of these documents is legislated in the Health Professions Act and compliance with them is mandatory for all MLTs at all times in all dimensions of professional practice. Violation of any part of the Code of Ethics or Standards of Practice may be grounds for a complaint of unprofessional conduct.

The Code of Ethics defines basic expectations and ethical principles for the MLT and acts as a moral guide which governs the professional, and at times, the personal conduct of all MLTs. The Code of Ethics conveys to the public the principles by which professional performance is adjudicated.

Treaty 6

We wish to acknowledge that the land on which the CMLTA office is located is Treaty 6 territory and a traditional meeting ground for many Indigenous people. This is home to the Cree, Blackfoot, and Metis, as it is for the Nakoda, Tsuu T’ina, Chipewyan, and other Indigenous people. Their spiritual and practical relationships to the land create a rich heritage for our life as a community.
