Renewal Reminders

  • Those choosing to renew mid-December or later should not expect a renewed registration and MLT practice permit by December 31.
  • To ensure timeliness, fairness, and to meet fiduciary responsibilities, the CMLTA uses email as the primary source for all communication. All MLTs are responsible for receiving, reviewing, and where necessary, responding to all communications from the CMLTA in a timely manner.
  • The CMLTA office will be closed from December 24 to January 1.

Legislated Deadline for Registration and MLT Practice Permit Renewal

Individuals working without a valid registration and MLT practice permit after December 31 are in contravention of the Health Professions Act (HPA) and shall be subject to sanctions under the HPA and an additional $500 payment to the CMLTA. They may also be subject to a complaint of unprofessional conduct, including discipline sanctions.

In this circumstance, the CMLTA also sends a notification to the employer after January 1 indicating the individual must cease working as an MLT immediately until they are in possession of a valid registration and practice permit and provide evidence of such to their employer.

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, Chipewayn, and other Indigenous people. Their spiritual and practical relationships to the land create a rich heritage for our life as community.
