The Canadian Alliance of Audiology and Speech – Language Pathology Regulators (CAASPR) works across national and international jurisdictional borders, to establish policy frameworks that harmonized the regulation and practice of Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology in Canada.
PROFESSIONAL PRACTICE IN CANADA
New Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology graduates and current Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists seeking to practice the profession in Canada are subject to various regulatory practice requirements.
NEW CANADIAN GRADUATES
Canadian Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology educational graduates are required, after they complete their accredited or unaccredited educational program, to complete an entry-to-practice examination. Canadian examination eligibility may be gained by registering with CAASPR if you are intending to practice in Newfoundland and Labrador, Manitoba, Prince Edward Island, Nunavut, Yukon and the Northwest Territory.
Foreign graduates and professional Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists who intend to practice the professions in Canada may apply to CAASPR for foreign education and credential equivalency assessment. As part of the assessment, CAASPR will determine your eligibility to sit the national Canadian Entry-To-Practice (CETP) examination.
