Council Highlights – December, 2020

The College Council met virtually on December 11, 2020. The information provided to members of Council for their discussion in anticipation of their deliberations and decision-making is posted on the homepage of College website a week in advance of the meeting. Following the meeting, information is archived on the website in the Council Meeting Materials Reference Library.


CFTA and Communication of a Diagnosis

Council directed the Registration Committee develop a process to assess all candidates seeking registration through the provisions of the Canada Free Trade Agreement (CFTA) on their competence to perform the controlled act of communication of a diagnosis.  This assessment is to be substantially similar to the evaluation process for new Ontario registrants. At this time, in addition to completing the application process, a practitioner registered in another Canadian jurisdiction must only successfully complete the Jurisprudence and Ethics Examination. Council is directing that these candidates also be assessed on their competence to perform the controlled act of communication of a diagnosis, since this is a restricted activity in Ontario.           

College Performance Management Framework

The Ministry of Health has developed the College Performance Measurement Framework (CPMF).  This Framework requires all 26 health regulatory Colleges in Ontario to prepare performance information, in a standard format for review by the Ministry and for posting on the College website by March 31, 2021. The Registrar provided Council with a copy of the CPMF.


The next meeting of Council will be held virtually on March 19, 2021.
