Winter 2020 On Call – December Council Highlights
February 13, 2020
Statutory Committee Composition Recommendations
Statutory Committees are mandated under the Regulated Health Professions Act, 1991, and comprised of both public and professional members. The College has seven committees; Executive, Discipline, Fitness to Practice, Inquiries, Complaints, and Reports, Registration, Quality Assurance and Client Relations, and they all report directly to Council. The Executive Committee provided recommendations to Council to fill Committee member and Chair roles for 2019-2020. These recommendations were approved by Council at the December meeting. You may see the composition of the College’s committees here.
Public Non-Council Committee Members
The College would like to welcome Samantha Heiydt and Jillian Evans as the newest Public non-Council Committee Members. Both Samantha and Jillian were appointed by Council after submitting their applications to the College. The College and Council look forward to working with both of them.
Criminal Record Screening Policy
Council approved two amendments to the Criminal Record Screening Policy. The policy now requires that Vulnerable Sector Checks must be conducted no more than 6 months prior to an applicants’ registration date. To read more about the changes, please head to page 7.
Requalification Requirements Policy Rescinded
Council rescinded the Requalification Requirements Policy after the Registration Committee found that the policy no longer met the College’s definition of a policy. This policy was rescinded effective immediately. Read about the background of this decision in our Meeting Materials.
