Health Human Resource Data Collection

The College of Medical Laboratory Technologists of Ontario (CMLTO) collects certain information from members to inform health human resource (HHR) planning at both the national and provincial level. All HHR information regarding members has personal identifiers removed prior to submission.

Two initiatives in support of broader-based HHR planning for medical laboratory technology are currently ongoing:

  • The Medical Laboratory Technologist Database (MLTDB) is administered by the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI). The MLTDB has collected information from regulatory bodies and professional associations across Canada with the aim to: “provide standardized comparative data and reports on demographic, geographic, education and employment information for medical laboratory technologists in Canada.”
  • The Health Professions Database (HPDB) is administered by the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care’s (MOHLTC) HealthForceOntario. The database, once populated, will: “provide standardized, consistent and comparable demographic, geographic, educational, and employment information on all of the regulated allied health professionals in Ontario.”

The information and analysis produced by both databases is publicly accessible and available through the respective websites.
