Unauthorized Practitioner Register



It is important that patients know who is delivering their care. In choosing a registered naturopath, the public can be assured that individual is qualified to deliver safe, ethical, and competent care.

Only people registered with the College can practice naturopathy in Ontario and use the title of naturopath, naturopathic doctor or ND, or an abbreviation or any variation of those titles. These individuals will be listed on the College’s Public Register.

On occasion, the College will learn about individuals who are pretending to be a naturopath or naturopathic doctor. These individuals are called unregulated or unauthorized practitioners, and are practicing illegally. The College investigates each one of these cases, and posts the names of these individuals on the Unauthorized Practitioners Register.

Whenever you are seeking naturopathic care, confirm that a registered naturopathic doctor will provide it.
