Peer & Practice Assessments

The Quality Assurance Committee presented to Council about the first assessment cycle that took place in 2020 with the redesigned Peer and Practice Assessment Program. 10% of the membership were selected, seven assessors were appointed, and assessments were carried out in February and March. The 2021 assessments will begin in ­January 2021, and the assessment process will remain the same with minor revisions made to tools for clarity. Read about what to expect on page 9.

New Public Member

We would like to welcome Sarah Baker to Council as our newest public member who was appointed for a one-year term. At the September Council meeting Sarah was appointed to the College’s Registration, Discipline and Fitness to Practise Committees. You may read more about Sarah on page 20. We look forward to working with Sarah over the next year!

Executive Committee Election

The College recently held Executive Officer elections and four of the five executive positions were acclaimed. The professional member-at-large position went forward with an election at the September Council meeting. Congratulations to Claire Ramlogan-Salanga (Chair), Edan Thomas (Vice-Chair Professional), Don Strickland (Vice-Chair Public), Marianna Kaminska (Public member-at large) and Claudette Leduc (Professional member-at-large).
