Future Regulated Health Professionals: Naturopaths, Homeopaths

Both naturopaths and homeopaths are disciplines that have been regulated by the Drugless Practitioners Act.

However, the Government of Ontario has passed new acts (Naturopathy Act, 2007 and Homeopathy Act, 2007 respectively) that set out the process for new regulatory colleges to be created that will oversee registering and regulating these professions in the public interest.

Once established and operating (anticipated in 2013) these colleges will set each profession’s qualifications and requirements for naturopaths and homeopaths to practice as licensed health professionals in Ontario – just as 27 other regulated health professions are governed by the Regulated Health Professions Act, 1991.
