Committees

The College Bylaws established eight committees to support the core regulatory functions of the College and Board. Committees are made up of Board members and other professionals to provide guidance and direction to the Board and the College’s staff.

Discipline Committee

The Discipline Committee considers allegations of incompetence and professional misconduct referred to it by the Inquiry Committee. If a panel of the Discipline Committee finds the Registrant guilty of professional misconduct or incompetence it may do one or more of the following:

  • dismiss the matter;
  • reprimand the respondent; impose limits or conditions;
  • suspend respondent registration;
  • cancel respondent registration;
  • fine the respondent;
  • and assess whole or partial hearing costs against the respondent.

In cases where there is a finding of professional misconduct, the results of the proceeding must be included on the College’s Register which is available on the College’s website, as required by the Health Professions Act. In addition, the Act requires the College to publish a summary of each case and these are also published on the College’s website.
