      COVID-19 UPDATE: Osteopathy is not an essential service and all practitioners should stop providing treatment. As OSTCAN has been keeping its members abreast of information since early March, and in keeping with the several notices that have been administered directly to our membership; across Canada it is recommended that all practices close. Members of in Ontario specifically, who do not adhere to the order under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act are not complying with the laws of the Province of Ontario. This may result in you being fined and/or imprisoned. It may also result in you being delisted by insurance providers and it is a breach of our Standards of Practice which require you to comply with the laws of the jurisdiction in which you practice (Standard 17), to comply with health and safety legislation (Standard 14) and putting your own interests above your patients' safety (Standard 16). Members remaining open may also be subjected to discipline by the OOA which may result in the revocation of their membership.
