Ontario Connecting People to More Consistent, High-Quality Health Care

Our government is introducing new registration systems to help Ontarians feel more confident in the quality of healthcare they receive.

As of December 1, personal support workers will be able to register with the new Health and Supportive Care Providers Oversight Authority (HSCPOA) that will regulate personal support workers (PSWs) and physician assistants (PAs) through the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario (CPSO).

These changes will provide better oversight in the health care system, supporting patient confidence and helping PSWs and PAs deliver connected and convenient care across Ontario.

Those registered with the authority will also be listed on an online public register and be easily identified with the HSCPOA’s quality mark on their identification badge or paperwork in order to show employers, patients and their families proof of registration.
