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, Suki Kaur Alix at: email@example.com
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 College of Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists of Saskatchewan (CSASK), the College of Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists of Ontario (CASLPO) and the New Brunswick Association of Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists (NBASLPA).
As of July 4, 2022, registrants who hold a full practicing registration from one of the participating provinces (the primary province) are 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.
- 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.
