Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists

We assist audiologists and speech-language pathologists facing complaints, discipline hearings, and other regulatory issues at the College of Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists of Ontario (CASLPO). The lawyers at GlickLaw have acted as external legal counsel for years to numerous health colleges governed by the Regulated Health Professions Act (“RHPA”) and have significant experience in professional regulation and discipline.
