What is the Alberta College of Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists?
The Alberta College of Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists (ACSLPA) is the organization that protects and serves the public by regulating and ensuring competent, safe, and ethical practice of audiologists and speech-language pathologists (SLPs) in Alberta. The Alberta government has given ACSLPA this power and has described the rules and responsibilities for this kind of work in the Health Professions Act (HPA).
Who needs to Register with ACSLPA?
Every speech-language pathologist or audiologist who meets the requirements for registration and provides professional services to the public as described in the HPA must be registered with ACSLPA before providing any professional services in the province of Alberta.
