The College administers and oversees six committees that are governed with the same integrity, accountability and transparency as the Board, to regulate the profession in the interest of the public. As guided by the Health Professions Act (HPA), the committees are comprised of one public board member, one public representative, four volunteer registrants and two ex officio members.

Registration Committee

Reviews and decides whether to approve or deny non-routine applications for initial registration, annual renewal, and reinstatement.

Quality Assurance Committee

Promotes safe and ethical practice by developing professional and ethical standards, and by committing to quality assurance programs that promote clinical excellence.

Inquiry Committee

Mandated to investigate complaints against registrants, which are delivered to the registrar in writing. The committee may also initiate an investigation of a registrant.

Discipline Committee

Hears allegations of professional misconduct, incompetence, or incapacity referred to in by the Inquiry Committee, and if allegations are proven, determines an appropriate remedy following its deliberation of the facts presented by all parties.

Patient Relations Committee

The Patient Relations Committee establishes and maintains procedures and programs for dealing with complaints of sexual misconduct.

Pharmaceutical Advisory Committee

Maintains and develops standards, limits and conditions on the clinical use, prescribing and dispensing of pharmaceutical agents.
