Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists are regulated in Saskatchewan (The Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists Act, 1992)

The Saskatchewan Association of Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists’ (SASLPA) goal is to “license, regulate and guide the practice of Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists in the interest of the public”.  

Regulating in the public interest means making sure that all Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists work with the public in a safe and ethical way.  SASLPA does this by:

  1. Setting rules for who can have a licence to work as an audiologist or speech-language pathologist.  For example, members must have at least a Master’s degree in Audiology or Speech-Language Pathology;
  2. Setting rules and guidelines for the members to follow.  For example:
    1. Code of Ethics;
    2. Rules of professional conduct;
    3. Standards of practice; and
    4. Continuing competency rules.
  3. Keeping a list with the names and work information of members.  The public can ask to see this list. 
  4. Looking into complaints about members.
  5. Carrying out discipline when members do not follow the rules for ethical and safe practice.
