The Medical Laboratory Technologists Act was assented to July 25, 2002 and proclaimed by the Lieutenant Governor of Manitoba on February 1, 2007.

The College of Medical Laboratory Technologists of Manitoba is the regulatory body for the profession of Medical Laboratory Technology in Manitoba.

Anyone performing laboratory investigations on the human body or on specimens taken from the human body, and the interpretation of quality control data to verify the accuracy and precision of investigation results, for the use by other health care professionals in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disease must be on the register of the College and in possession of a valid Certificate to Practice.

The College does not regulate medical laboratories; it regulates Medical Laboratory Technologists (MLT's) working in the laboratories. This process ensures that a licensed technologist has the competencies required to practice in the fields specified on the license.

Acknowledgement Statement

We would like to begin by acknowledging that the College of Medical Laboratory Technologists of Manitoba is built on original lands of Anishinaabeg, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota, and Dene Peoples, and on the homeland of the M├ętis Nation. We respect the Treaties that were made on these territories, we acknowledge the harms and mistakes of the past, and we dedicate ourselves to move forward in partnership with Indigenous communities in a spirit of reconciliation and collaboration.
