On May 30, 2017, the Protecting Patients Act, 2017, formerly known as Bill 87, was passed. As a result, there are changes to the Regulated Health Professions Act, 1991 (RHPA).

Prior to the passing of the Protecting Patients Act, 2017, the College began a consultation on proposed revisions to its bylaws. Some of those proposed revisions were driven by Bill 87. College Council will be reviewing the results of the bylaw consultation at its June 27, 2017 meeting. Any decisions regarding the proposed amendments to the bylaws will be made with consideration of legislation now in force.

Council meeting materials will be posted on the College website in advance of the meeting. Outcomes of the Council meeting will be posted following the meeting.
