Note on QA Program Changes During the Pandemic

As the Quality Assurance (QA) program is a legal requirement of the College’s public protection mandate, it is not possible to halt the program during the pandemic. Registrant participation in the program remains an important part of public protection.

Some changes to the Quality Assurance Program made during the pandemic include postponed deadlines, deferring participation for registrants with extenuating circumstances, and allowing some of the program to be optional instead of required.  Peer and Practice Assessments (PPA) were pivoted to virtual versus in-person to improve efficiency and safety for all involved.
