Under RHPA health professionals were not permitted to have sexual relationship with anyone they threat. There is zero tolerance in regards to sexual relationship with patients. And many health professionals who threaded their spouses have lost their license to practice in the previous years.
COMPO, while is not a regulated health college as defined under RHPA, has adopted similar guidelines. However with the passing of Bill 70, COMPO has revised its guideline. COMPO members are now permitted to provide treatments to their spouses. Please note that this applies only to spouses as they are defined under the Ontario laws, not any other types of relationships.
