In 2017, the Federation of Health Regulatory Colleges of Ontario created www.ontariohealthregulators.ca. The OHR website is the one-stop gateway to the websites of all the health regulators in Ontario. From here the public can find the most trustworthy, relevant, and up-to-date information about the colleges and the health professionals they regulate.
What are the advantages of using the OHR website?
- This new website recognizes the public’s need for easy-to-access information and resources on regulated health professionals in a single place.
- On this site, visitors will be able to access the registers of all 26 colleges, find a health professional, and see important information about a health professional’s registration and discipline history.
- The site also contains a variety of articles to help users of the health care system make the most of their care and time with regulated health professionals.
- The information on this site is available in 10 languages.
Why should I share the OHR website?
Your help is needed to complement the efforts already in place to reach as wide an audience as possible. The website will be marketed on social media to Ontario caregivers using video and sponsored posts. A targeted online article campaign will also be launched across the province to promote the value of using the services of regulated health professionals and the new website. Please watch for updates.
