Advocacy in Action

November 06, 2023
CSMLS advocacy efforts are focused on addressing the shortage of laboratory professionals across Canada. Our four-pronged approach includes advocating on:
  • Expansion of training programs
  • Supports for the successful integration of IEMLTs
  • Optimizing the use of MLAs in health care
  • Reducing low-value testing, through Lab Wisely initiatives
Congratulations to Saskatchewan Polytechnic for adding ten new seats for future MLTs this Fall. In regards to MLA regulation, a necessary step towards optimizing the use of MLAs in health care, formal submissions are before the Governments of Nova Scotia and Alberta. A submission to the Government of Ontario is currently in progress.
