Consultation: Proposed Amendments to College By-law

The College is inviting comments on proposed amendments to the College By-laws.

To prepare for proclamation of the Psychology and Applied Behaviour Analysis Act, 2021, the College must amend its By-laws to include the profession of applied behaviour analysis and the regulation of Behaviour Analysts. The mandate of the College is to serve and protect the public interest, and it delivers programs and services to fulfill that mandate. The College needs to ensure it has adequate By-laws in place to deliver the programs and services necessary to meet the public interest mandate. At its meeting of December 15, 2023, the Council of the College of Psychologists passed a motion to circulate proposed amendments to the College By-laws.  If you wish to comment on the proposed amendments, we would appreciate hearing from you by Friday, February 16, 2024. The proposed amendments and a feedback submission form is available here:

The Health Professions Procedural Code being Schedule 2 of the Regulated Health Professions Act, 1991 (RHPA) requires that amendments to these By-laws be circulated to members 60 days before they receive final approval. Following the consultation, Council will review the changes again alongside any feedback. Feedback will be presented in summary form. Feedback from individuals will be kept anonymous. Feedback on behalf of organizations may include the name of the organization.
