The College Bylaws act as a “rule book” providing the foundation for sound and effective decision-making around the boardroom table. The COTBC Board is responsible for reviewing the bylaws, and, if necessary, revising, replacing or repealing them to ensure effective oversight of the profession as mandated by the Health Professions Act.

On March 8, 2017, the board approved extensive amendments to the COTBC’s bylaws. This is the first substantial review since February 2000 when the College was established and the original bylaws were approved. The proposed amendments correct many outdated sections of the bylaws.

Due to the extensive revisions, the College is seeking to replace our existing bylaws with the newly drafted content. When a bylaw amendment is proposed, the College is required to give notice to registrants, other health profession regulators and the public to give key stakeholders an opportunity to ask questions and provide comments. The comments provide insight into how the bylaw amendments are being interpreted and whether further clarification is needed.

These proposed amendments will be posted for three months (until June 13, 2017) to provide time for comments. All comments are considered by both the College and the Ministry of Health. If you prefer, you may provide comments directly to the Ministry of Health. Please see contact information below.

Notice date: March 13, 2017
Deadline for comments: June 13, 2017
