What SSMLT Does
The Saskatchewan Society of Medical Laboratory Technologists (SSMLT) is responsible for regulating in the public interest, the registration and practice of Medical Laboratory Technologists under provincial legislation called Medical Laboratory Technologists Act, 1995. All Medical Laboratory Technologists in Saskatchewan must be licensed by SSMLT to practice medical laboratory technology in Saskatchewan. The duties of the SSMLT are licensing qualified and competent MLTs, monitoring and maintaining standards of practice, set requirements for continuing education and the development of standards and policies that support the MLT to practice medical laboratory technology accurately, safely and ethically. SSMLT protects the public by holding accountable the licensed medical laboratory technologists. The SSMLT investigates formal complaints against a member that are received from members, the public, co-workers or other health care professionals.
