Cancelled: April Ontario Prescribing and Therapeutics Examination

TORONTO, ON— On April 1, 2021, the Ontario Legislature declared a 28-day province-wide “emergency break” that will go into effect on April 3, 2021 until April 30, 2021 (at the earliest) to help flatten the curve of the third wave of COVID-19 and its variants. Among the restrictions being put in place will be an outright prohibition of events and gatherings.

As a result of these impending restrictions, the College of Naturopaths of Ontario (the College) has no alternative but to cancel the April 25, 2021 session of the Ontario Prescribing & Therapeutics examinations.

The next scheduled session is June 27, 2021. Those registered for the April 25 session will be contacted by e-mail and provided with the ability to transfer their exam registration to the June session or obtain a refund of the examination fee paid.

A determination as to whether an additional session can be added to the Prescribing & Therapeutics Exam Schedule for 2021 will be made in the coming weeks as more information becomes available.

We understand that this news is disappointing for those preparing to sit the upcoming session and greatly appreciate your patience as we work to adjust exam operations again in light of today’s announcement.
