Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) Update

The College remains committed to the principles of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) and to incorporating EDI into all aspects of the College’s work and its regulatory processes and encouraging the same within the larger profession. The College has created an Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion page on which information and resources will be continually updated.

The EDI Working Group has continued to direct its efforts to the goals it established and remains focused on implementing diversity practices across the College Committees and imbedding EDI in the College framework.  This has continued to include, EDI Working group Representatives supporting the JEE Committee in their efforts to guide the JEE exam item writing process and assist with incorporating EDI content and principles in the exam. The Working Group has continued to work with the Quality Assurance Committee to ensure that EDI is considered when looking at CPD credits and in other initiatives related to the committee. The Working Group has also been continuing to work with the Registration Committee to ensure that EDI is incorporated in the oral examination process and other aspects of the registration process. We are also working with the Client Relations Committee on their various initiatives. We will continue to update you on these EDI committee initiatives.

In regard to more recent events, the EDI working group is focusing on the completion plan for the College’s Equity Impact Assessment. This is a Ministry of Health expectation within the College Performance Measurement Framework (CPMF). We will keep you updated on these recent events.
