Volunteer Opportunities


Volunteers are the heart of the MLPAO, whereby they contribute their time to help keep our society moving and growing. If you are interested in volunteering, please review the open positions listed below. 



Education Committee


The MLPAO is looking for members to participate on one of the following 2 committees:

  1. MLT focused Education Committee

  2. MLA/T focused Education Committee


The MLPAO is committed to ensuring that MLT and MLA/T education offerings are up-to-date and relevant for the profession. The committees will provide input into future education offerings and they will help shape the future of education for the profession.

MLT Focus Group

We're convening an MLT Focus Group in August. Contribute perspectives on member programs, benefits, and the MLPAO. We're looking for Medical Laboratory Technologists from many different perspectives, from recent grads, retirees, bench techs,  lab managers, rural to remote, and everything in between.

In your application, please let us know a bit about yourself: your worksite, career background, and what perspective you bring to the focus group.

The MLPAO is committed to ensuring that MLA/T training and testing is up-to-date and relevant to the current scope of practice in Ontario. As part of this commitment, the MLPAO continually renews the MLA/T Certification Exam.
