The government of the Province of Ontario has proposed a series of reforms and modernization initiatives that will impact the governance of health professional regulatory colleges in Ontario. The College of Kinesiologists of Ontario (“the College”) will be required to implement and abide by these reforms once they have been incorporated into legislation, including the Regulated Health Professions Act (RHPA, 1991).
The College has undertaken a review of its by-laws, including By-law 13, which relates to the specific composition and selection of committees for the College. The review included an environmental scan that focused on two key areas relevant to Governance reforms and current best practices:
- Council and committee terms (including, but not limited to, maximum term limits and cooling-off periods)
- Election processes (including, but not limited to, eligibility and nominations)
The information gathered in the environmental scan was used to develop proposed amendments to the College’s by-laws.
The intent of the College is to ensure that by-laws pertaining to the specific composition and selection of committees are clear, relevant and consistent with current and anticipated legislation and best practices.
Share your feedback
The College would like to hear from you on the By-law 13 amendments regarding the specific composition and selection of committees for the College. All feedback will be considered by Council as part of the decision-making process, whether it is reflected in the final document.
Please share your thoughts through the online survey by Tuesday, May 30, 2023
The College will review all feedback and present final By-law 13 amendments for Council approval in June 2023. Once the By-law 13 amendments are implemented, changes will be communicated to registrants and stakeholders.
