Practice Locations – Reporting Requirements

(Effective April 15, 2014)

The College By-Laws require members to provide written notice of any change to information previously provided to the College within 14 days of the change. This includes notifying the College of any change of practice location or any additional locations where a member may practise.

An optometrist must report a location to the College if it meets one or more of the following criteria:

  • practise or plan to practise 14 or more days per year or four or more days in any one month in that location;
  • the clinical records are maintained on-site; or
  • there is published contact information related to or referencing the location.
