Restricted Purpose Regulated Registrant
A Restricted Purpose registration with the College of Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists of Manitoba is a temporary Certificate of Registration and Certificate of Practice that enables an audiologist (“AUD”) or speech-language pathologist (“SLP”), who is fully licensed to practice in another Canadian jurisdiction, to do temporary work in Manitoba.
Some of the reasons why an audiologist or speech-language pathologist may want to obtain a Restricted Purpose registration with CASLPM, as opposed to obtaining Full registration, include:
- to conduct a training course or clinical presentation related to professional practice.
- to conduct or engage in a research program related to professional practice.
- to demonstrate equipment or techniques to be used in clinical care related to professional practice.
- to engage in Cross-Provincial Practice, as per the agreement between Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario and New Brunswick. *Scroll down for further information on cross-provincial practice.
A Restricted Purpose Certificate of Practice is authorized for a specific purpose and has a limited time period of no more than 12 months.
To apply as a Restricted Purpose Regulated Member, please review the CASLPM Application Checklist – Restricted Purpose. Please direct all inquiries to the CASLPM Deputy Registrar, Sukhmeet (Suki) at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Cross-Provincial Practice (CPP)
In an effort to eliminate barriers to service, the College of Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists of Manitoba (CASLPM) has entered into an agreement with the Alberta College of Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists (ACSLPA), the Saskatchewan Association of Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists (SASLPA), the College of Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists of Ontario (CASLPO) and the New Brunswick Association of Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists (NBASLPA).
Starting July 4, 2022, registrants who hold a full practicing registration from one of the participating provinces (the primary province) will be able to obtain cross-provincial practice registration in another participating province (the secondary province) to provide a limited amount of professional care, either virtually or in-person. The purpose of this agreement is to provide a lower fee option for fully practicing AUDs or SLPs that allows them to enhance access of care for clients/patients across provincial boundaries.
In Manitoba, the Restricted Purpose – Cross-Provincial Practice registration:
- is limited to a fully regulated registrant from one of the participating provinces (AB, SK, ON or NB) who is in good standing and who has practiced in their primary province for at least 750 hours in the last three years.
- is limited to a maximum total of 200 direct client/patient care hours in one year’s time.
- will expire after 12 months with the ability to reapply.
