Professional Liability Insurance (PLI) is insurance that is held by practitioners to protect their patients and themselves should the practitioner be subject to legal or regulatory claims against them. It is not a requirement for MLTs in Alberta to have PLI.
Even though is it not required, it is advisable that all MLTs have PLI. PLI is offered through various companies or organizations including the Canadian Society of Medical Laboratory Sciences (CSMLS). For more information about what the CSMLS offers, please visit www.csmls.org.
The College of Medical Laboratory Technologists of Alberta (CMLTA) is the regulatory body for Medical Laboratory Technologists (MLTs) employed in Alberta.
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.
