d) Fees
i. Describe any improvements / changes implemented in the last year.

Effective October 1, 2017, the application fee increased from $100 to $150.

Effective October 1, 2017, the annual fee also increased:

  • For Initial and non-practising members from $364 to $368.
  • For General and academic members from $728 to $735

The prorated annual fee is now caculated as a quarterly prorated amount instead of a monthly prorated amount.

ii. Describe the impact of the improvements / changes on applicants.

The fee increase did not appear to impact the number of applications received and registered.

iii. Describe the impact of the improvements / changes on your organization.

The fee increase has allowed CASLPO to stay on budget without the need to use reserve funds.


 

e) Timelines
i. Describe any improvements / changes implemented in the last year.

The College has seen an increase in the number referred to the Registration Committee for consideration.  With an increase in frequency of panel meetings and the number of applications considered at each meeting, it was necessary to increase the timeline for providing applicants with written decisions.  The timeline for receiving written decisions after a panel meeting has increased from 3 weeks to 5 weeks.

ii. Describe the impact of the improvements / changes on applicants.

Applicants who have had their applications referred to the Registration Committee for consideration must wait longer to receive registration decisions.

iii. Describe the impact of the improvements / changes on your organization.

Staff in the registration services department are better able to manage and meet the expectations of applicants.
 

f) Policies, procedures and/or processes, including by-laws
i. Describe any improvements / changes implemented in the last year.

The Registration Committee developed a policy that outlines the relevant factors for the Registration Committee to consider when determining if an applicant meets the good character requirement of Ontario Regulation 21/12.

ii. Describe the impact of the improvements / changes on applicants.

It is also important for applicants to recognize that declaring a conduct matter does not automatically disqualify an applicant from registration with CASLPO.  Each circumstance is reviewed by the Registration Committee on a case-by-case basis.

iii. Describe the impact of the improvements / changes on your organization.

The Registration Committee has not considered any "good character" cases since the new policy was approved.  However, the College anticipates that the new policy will provide staff and Committee members with a clear process to follow for the consideration of conduct matters and aid the Committee in it's decision making.

g) Resources for applicants
i. Describe any improvements / changes implemented in the last year.

The following updates were made to the College's website:

1. How To Apply To The College webpage updated 

  • 3 Pathways to CASLPO Registration outlined
  • Frequently Asked Questions section added.

2. Canadian Graduates webpage revised to provide greater transparency to Canadian applicants regarding each stage of the application process.

3. Graduates of International Programs webpage revised to provide greater transparency to International applicants regarding each stage of the application process.

4. Professionals From Other Regulated Canadian Provinces webpage revised to provide greater transparency to Labour Mobility applicants regarding each stage of the registration process.

 

ii. Describe the impact of the improvements / changes on applicants.

Applicants are able to get answers to some of their questions, without calling or emailing the College. Applicants are now  better able to understand the necessary steps to obtaining a certificate of registration from CASLPO.

iii. Describe the impact of the improvements / changes on your organization.

It is our intention to reduce the amount of staff time spent answering emails and telephone calls about the registration process.  We have not had the opportunity to measure the impact of the addition of these new resources.
