Mission, vision, values

Our mission

The CMLTO exists for the protection of the public's right to safe, high-quality health care through self-regulation and leadership of the medical laboratory technologist (MLT) profession.

Our vision

The CMLTO will be recognized, by our stakeholders, as a successful leader in the health regulatory community and as a trusted, valued, and fair regulatory body. Exceptional customer service, high-quality programs, engaged members, and financial stability will be the hallmarks of the organization.


Our values – competence and trust 
Our values are beliefs which drive our behavior and results. Together, with our passion for success, these are the values that we share and which are embedded in our culture. 

• Leadership 
We will have the courage and confidence to embrace new opportunities and seek out rewarding challenges in order to shape a better future. 

• Integrity
Being honest, trustworthy, approachable, fair, and objective. 

• Accountability 
If it is to be, it is up to each of us. We walk our talk. If we say we will do it, we will, and if we can’t we explain why. We follow through on our commitments and remain accountable for our attitude and actions. 

• Collaboration
Working together to build understanding. Respecting each other. Realizing the impact of our words and actions, and accepting the consequences. Standing by one another and pulling together through good times and bad. In doing so, realizing that we can leverage each other’s strengths and accomplish extraordinary things. 

• Excellence 
What we do, we do well. We are committed to quality and seek to continuously improve. We are innovative by seeking new knowledge, by imagining, and by creating. All of CMLTO’s people are here to make health care the best that it can be. 

• Caring 
The best interest of the public of Ontario is at the centre of our purpose and our work.
