Key Bylaw Changes
Council Decisions in Effect
Your Feedback Was Heard

The College received 500 responses to the March to May, 2017 consultation on proposed bylaw amendments. All feedback was reviewed. Changes were made to clarify meaning and intent. At its June 27th Council Meeting, Council passed all bylaw amendments with significant changes to some of the language. Proposed bylaw amendments were  in response to the public demand for greater transparency and accountability. Revisions were also consistent with government requirements for transparency and certain proposals in the  Protecting Patients Act 2017 , formerly known as Bill 87.
