Welcome to the Personal Support Worker Registry of Ontario
Personal Support Workers (PSWs) are one of the largest groups in Ontario’s health workforce and provide frontline care services to some of the province's most vulnerable citizens.
The PSW Registry of Ontario is being developed and implemented over a three‐year period by the Michener Institute of Education at UHN to reaffirm the Ontario government’s commitment to patient safety and quality of care. It is a source to verify a PSW’s credentials, conduct, and competence. Employers may refer to it to fill vacancies. This Registry has no affiliation with the previous PSW registry, which was closed in 2016.
