We did it! The Medical Laboratory Technology Act 1991 has been amended to indicate that on July 1st, 2015, members of the College of Naturopaths of Ontario will be included in the list of health care professionals who may order laboratory tests.
Thanks to the supporters of Naturopathic Doctors across Ontario, the provincial government listened and made an amendment that preserves our current scope of practice.
Again, I wish to extend many gracious thank-yous to everyone who showed their support for this cause after reading the blog or our clinic Facebook page. I am overwhelmed to find out about this decision and to know that it is because our voices were heard.
