The Canadian Society for Medical Laboratory Science (CSMLS) is the national certifying body and professional association for medical laboratory technologists and medical laboratory assistants. CSMLS is a national not-for-profit voluntary association that is funded entirely by membership dues and revenues from goods and services. We do not receive operational funding from governments or other organizations.

There are over 14,000 CSMLS members. Members practise in hospital laboratories, private medical laboratories, public health laboratories, government laboratories, research and educational institutions. Some pursue careers in health care administration, medical laboratory technology education and in related commercial fields.

Medical laboratory professionals work in a dynamic and ever-changing field. CSMLS provides professional development and continuing education programs to help members update their skills and knowledge, and achieve their professional goals.
