Fair Registration Practices (FRP) Report, 2009

Registration Practices: As a result of both an internal review and an external audit of registration practices, the CMLTO's registration panels will meet by teleconference to reduce the time needed to make registration decisions and communicate them to applicants. The review and audit each confirmed that the CMLTO is meeting or exceeding established timelines and customer service standards.

For a description of all OFC-monitored developments for this profession for 2009, see the 2009-2010 Annual Report.
