The CMLTO may send complaints to the Ministry of Health for matters regarding compliance with the LSCCLA, including compliance with the quality management program described in the LSCCLA.  To file a complaint about a laboratory or specimen collection centre, please contact the Laboratories and Diagnostics Branch at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

As a health care consumer, if you are concerned that your local laboratory or specimen collection centre is unlicensed, simply tell your health professional that you would like to have your specimen taken at a licensed specimen collection centre and tested at a licensed laboratory. Information is available to help find the nearest licensed specimen collection centre and laboratory in your community.
