The CRTO is responsible for setting Respiratory Therapy entry to practice requirements in Ontario. The Ontario Regulation 596/94, Part VIII (Registration (s. 55(2)) sets out the requirements for registration with the CRTO. The CRTO approves schools accredited by Accreditation Canada. Graduates from approved programs are eligible to register in the Graduate Class of Registration (GRT) and they are also eligible to write the Canadian Board for Respiratory Care (CBRC) National Examination. Upon successful completion of the CBRC exam, graduates can receive the General Certificate of Registration, provided they meet all other eligibility requirements.
Please note: Fleming College (Peterborough) is in the process of developing an RT program which is scheduled to launch in January 2023. Anyone with any inquiries regarding this program and/or its accreditation status is advised to contact Fleming College directly.
