College Performance Measurement Framework

In December 2020, the Ontario Ministry of Health released the inaugural College Performance Measurement Framework (CPMF) which will, for the first time in Ontario, further strengthen the accountability and oversight of Ontario’s health regulatory colleges by providing information that is transparent, consistent and aligned across all colleges on their performance in serving the public’s interest.

The CPMF consists of seven domains: Governance, Resources, System Partners, Information Management, Regulatory Policies, Suitability to Practice, and Measurement, Reporting and Improvement. Within each domain, specific components such as standards, measures, evidence and planned improvement activities set out expectations and requirements for the colleges to include/respond to in their submitted reports to the Ministry.

Effective March 31, 2021, all colleges are required to make submissions to the Ministry using the CPMF reporting tool and to post their submitted reports on their public websites.
