Mandatory or Self-Report Online Form

Your Reporting Obligations

Mandatory reporting obligations apply to regulated health care providers, employers of regulated health care providers and Heath Information Custodians.

There are a number of situations in which physiotherapists, employers of physiotherapists and regulated health care providers and Health Information Custodians have a legal obligation to make a Mandatory Report. In cases where physiotherapists are employers of other regulated health care providers, additional reporting obligations apply. The requirement to file a Mandatory Report is required by legislation, regulation or law.

Physiotherapists are required by law to make self-reports when they have been charged or found guilty of certain offences.

If you have questions about what you must and must not report, please contact the College Practice Advisors at or 647-484-8800 or 1-800-583-5885.
