October 26, 2023 Board Meeting Highlights

Strategic Planning

On October 25, the Board participated in a strategic planning session. Discussions will inform the development of the College’s 2024-2027 strategic priorities. Survey feedback from registrants and members of the public were reviewed during the session and the College is grateful for these valuable insights. Key themes will be shared later this year.

Board directors Vincent Samuel, Lucy Kloosterhuis, Teri Shackleton, Stephanie Schurr, Neelam Bal and Sarah Milton were appointed to the Strategic Planning Working Group.

The 2024-2027 strategic plan will come into effect on June 1, 2024.

Bylaw Revisions

A growing registrant base and rising inflation have put a strain on the College’s budget and capacity to successfully fulfill its mandate. The Board approved the bylaws for consultation as required by the Regulated Health Professions Act, 1991, to allow the College to raise registration fees by up to 2% in each of the next five years.

The Board also approved the proposed 2% ($15.00) increase to registration fees for the upcoming 2024/2025 annual renewal period.

The bylaw consultation is available online and is open for comment until December 31, 2023.

Data to Support Diversity Equity and Inclusion Initiatives
