Notice of Elections

Call for Nominations

The College‚Äôs Council makes regulatory decisions in the public interest. In order to make decisions truly reflective of the interests of all Ontarians, we require the expertise and perspectives of individuals with a variety of experiences that represent a range of communities. Based on our current needs, we are particularly encouraging members who are Indigenous, Black, racialized, French-speaking, and/or working in rural or remote practices to help strengthen the diversity of Council or practising in expanded, collaborative and/or community health team models to run for election.

A new strategic plan approved by Council in March 2021 that identifies the key priorities and initiatives the College will be focused on over the next five years. Should you join the Council, you will play an important role in helping direct how these initiatives are fulfilled. You can read the Strategic Plan 2021-2026 to learn more.

We are now accepting nominations for our 2022 Council election. All nomination forms must be received by 5:00pm on Monday, May 2, 2022.
