About elections

The College is run by a Council, similar to a board of directors. Council sets the College's overall direction and ensures that the College is protecting the public. 

Council is made up of:

- Ten kinesiologists elected by their peers for three year terms, one of whom must be a member of an Ontario university’s faculty or department of kinesiology, and
- At least six and no more than eight public members appointed by the Ontario government to provide the public's point of view.

While kinesiologists are elected by their peers, they do not represent them. Once elected or appointed, all Council members are required to put the interests of the public ahead of the interests of the profession.

Determining your electoral district

There are seven electoral districts for the purpose of Council elections. Your electoral district is determined by where you primarily work. If you are not working, your electoral district is determined by where you live. View the electoral districts
