The College is looking for members who are interested in being appointed to serve on College Committees beginning in June 2023. The Regulated Health Professions Act, 1991, requires the College to have seven Statutory Committees: Executive; Registration; Inquiries, Complaints and Reports; Discipline; Fitness to Practice; Quality Assurance; and, Client Relations. Involvement on College Committees provides members with an opportunity to take an active role in the self-regulation of the profession. Selection of members is based upon the current needs of each Committee ensuring a mix of experienced and new members.
A brief description of each Committee’s composition, role, and functions as well as anticipated time commitment, may be found on the College website at: Call for Interest in Participating on College Committees.
Both membership titles, Psychologist and Psychological Associate, are represented on every Committee. In considering Committee membership, the College strives to create Committees that reflect equity, diversity, and inclusion. Ontario is home to one of the most diverse populations in the world; most Ontarians can trace their roots outside of Canada. Ontarians represent diversity of race, colour, being Indigenous, places of origin, religions, immigrant and newcomer status, ethnic origins, abilities, sexual orientations, gender identities, gender expression, socioeconomic status, and age. Recognizing this, the College knows that the needs of the public and the profession are best served through the involvement of those who recognize, respect, and promote the value inherent in such diversity.
Through its Council and Committees, the College endeavours to reflect the diversity of the Ontario public served by Psychologists and Psychological Associates.
