IN ONTARIO BEFORE 1991 BOTH CHIROPODISTS AND PODIATRISTS AS WELL AS MANY OTHER PROFESSIONS WERE PRACTICING UNDER THE UMBRELLA OF THE DRUGLESS PRACTITIONERS ACT.  IN 1991 THE ONTARIO GOVERNMENT OVERHAULED THE HEALTH PROFESSIONS AND CREATED THE REGULATED HEALTH PROFESSION ACT, RHPA.  ALL PODIATRISTS AND CHIROPODISTS WOULD BE REGULATED BY THE COLLEGE OF CHIROPODISTS OF ONTARIO AND ALSO ALL NEW PODIATRISTS WHO CHOSE TO PRACTICE IN ONTARIO WOULD HAVE TO PRACTICE AS CHIROPODISTS.  IN ONTARIO CHIROPODISTS HAVE A SLIGHTLY RESTRICTED SCOPE OF PRACTICE AS COMPARED TO PODIATRISTS.  NATURALLY THIS DID NOT SIT WELL WITH PODIATRISTS AND THEY HAVE BEEN CHALLENGING THIS RESTRICTION EVER SINCE.

CURRENTLY THE ONTARIO GOVERNMENT IS UNDERGOING A REVIEW OF ALL THE HEALTH PROFESSIONS UNDER A PROCESS KNOWN AS HPRAC AND IF THERE IS EVER GOING TO BE A CHANGE IN THE UNIQUE SITUATION REGARDING ONTARIO PODIATRISTS AND CHIROPODISTS, THIS WILL BE THE TIME.

SOON WE WILL HAVE A PODIATRIST WHO WILL GRADUATE FROM AUSTRALIA JOINING OUR FOOT CLINIC.  EVEN THOUGH SHE WOULD BE A PODIATRIST IN MANY OTHER JURISDICTIONS, IN ONTARIO SHE WILL HAVE TO PRACTICE AS A CHIROPODIST WHICH IS FINE WITH US.  OUR FOOT CLINIC IN TORONTO PRESENTLY HAS 6 CHIROPODISTS / FOOT SPECIALISTS AND NEXT YEAR THAT NUMBER WILL INCREASE TO 7.

IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE REQUIRES HONEST, COMPETENT FOOT CARE OR HIGH QUALITY CUSTOM ORTHOTICS, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT US AT 416-465-8737.  REMEMBER, WE ALWAYS TREAT OUR PATIENTS LIKE FAMILY.
