About the Ontario PSW Registry
In May 2011, the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC) announced the creation of a Registry of personal support workers (PSWs) to acknowledge the care they provide daily to some of Ontario's most vulnerable populations, including seniors and people with chronic illnessess and disabilities (Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care news release, June 14, 2012).
On June 1, 2012, the Ontario PSW Registry was officially launched and now has over 30,000 registered PSWs and counting!
