Important Information for Those Planning to Practise in Ontario

The College of Naturopaths of Ontario (CONO), the regulatory authority in the Province of Ontario, has announced that it will be producing its own entry-to-practise examinations for candidates who plan to become registered to practise in Ontario.  NABNE will continue to administer both the NPLEX Part I and Part II Examinations in Toronto, Ontario for the forseeable future.

To have your NPLEX Part II – Clinical Science exam results accepted by CONO, the last opportunity you will have to pass the NPLEX Part II – Core Clinical Science Examination(s) will be in February 2019. CONO will accept results from the NPLEX Part II – Clinical Science Examinations through March 31, 2019. After that date, you will be required to take the CONO Clinical entry-to-practise examination(s) if you want to practise as an ND in Ontario.

To have your NPLEX Part I – Biomedical Science exam results accepted by CONO, the last opportunity you will have to pass the NPLEX Part I – Biomedical Science Examination will be in August 2020.  CONO will accept results from the NPLEX Part I – Biomedical Science Examination through November 14, 2020. After that date, you will be required to pass the CONO Part I examination if you want to practise as an ND in Ontario.
