College of Naturopaths of Ontario

College of Naturopaths of Ontario

The College of Naturopaths of Ontario (CONO) is the governing body for the registered naturopaths in Ontario. The CONO was established by the Naturopathy Act in 2007, which came into force on July 1, 2015. The college is represented by its council.

The Office of the Fairness Commissioner (OFC) will oversee the registration practices of the college to ensure that they are transparent, objective, impartial and fair for anyone who wants to practise as a registered naturopath in this province. The OFC will work closely with the Registrar.
