PROTECTING THE PUBLIC AND ENSURING QUALITY CARE
Council has several statutory committees, which are mandated for all Colleges by the Regulated Health Professions Act, 1991 (RHPA). These committees are: Executive; Inquiries, Complaints and Reports; Discipline; Fitness to Practice; Quality Assurance; Registration; and, Patient Relations. Several years ago, Council established two special advisory committees to give focus to member-specific concerns arising from professional practice issues and the application of College standards. And so, on the following pages, in addition to reports from the committees listed above, you will also find reports from the practice advisory committees on Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology. Council also established a Finance Committee to review and evaluate risks facing the College, review and make recommendations on the annual budget, work with the external auditor and ensure systems are in place to comply with laws, regulations and standards.
