March 25, 2021 Council Meeting Highlights

College Performance Measurement Framework

Council approved the completed College Performance Measurement Framework (CPMF) for submission to the Ministry of Health. As a self-regulated profession, enhancing accountability and providing valuable information publicly will help to build stakeholder and public trust, and ideally help us to continue to excel as a regulator where we are protecting the public through our operations and programs. View the College CPMF

Board Competency Framework

Council approved the adoption of the College Board Competency Framework, which will be available later this year. The Board should be comprised of individuals who possess the knowledge, skills and experience to discharge their duties effectively. Improving how the College is governed will strengthen our protection of the public and enhance public confidence in the regulatory system.

Board Code of Conduct

Council approved the proposed Code of Conduct, which will be added to the College bylaws as Schedule B and released later this year. The public is entitled to expect the highest standards of conduct from its Directors and Committee Members as they fulfil their governance roles in order to carry out the College’s object of regulating the profession in the public interest.

Use of Social Media

The revised Use of Social Media document was approved and will be released later this year. Until then, the Guidelines for Use of Social Media, 2014 remain in effect and are available online under Standards & Resources.

Standards for Prevention and Management of Conflict of Interest

Council approved the draft Standards for Prevention and Management of Conflict of Interest for public and stakeholder consultation, which will begin later this year.
