On Dec. 20, 2013, HPRAC concluded its work on this referral by delivering its report to the Minister of Health and Long-Term Care, Hon. Deb. Matthews: Paramedicine in Ontario: Consideration of the Application for the Regulation of Paramedics under the Regulated Health Professions Act, 1991. HPRAC's reports are confidential until released by the Minister.
On March 7, 2014, the Minister publicly released the report.
On May 7, 2013, the Minister provided clarity on an earlier letter regarding the regulation of diagnostic sonographers. The minister considered the additional work that may need to be undertaken by HPRAC; and the importance of broad public consultation with key groups and stakeholders within the diagnostic sonography community who may not have been included in HPRAC's original review. The minister extended the timeline for this referral and requested that HPRAC submit its advice by June 30, 2014.
The minister also directed that the review of the chiropody and podiatry professions commence no later than January 1, 2014.
