Ontario Regulation 261/18 "Information Prescribed under Subsection 23 (2) of the Health Professions Procedural Code", expanded the list of information related to members that must be kept on the College's public register. The majority of the information set out by the new regulation is already required to be listed on the public register as a result of the College's By-Laws; however, in some instances, the new regulation expands the scope of the information to be made public. The By-Laws were changed to reflect this.
In summary, the additional information to be contained on the public register is as follows:
A summary of information relating to findings of guilt against a member under the Criminal Code and Controlled Drugs and Substances Act, unless the conviction was subject to a record suspension, pardon, or successful appeal.
Any conditions of release related to a charge or finding of guilt under the Criminal Code and Controlled Drugs and Substances Act, and any variations to those conditions.
Information relating to any outstanding charges for an offence under the Criminal Code and Controlled Drugs and Substances Act.
Information relating to a disciplinary finding or finding of professional misconduct or incompetence by another regulatory or licensing authority in any jurisdiction.
Information related to a member's licensure or registration to practice another profession in Ontario or a profession in another jurisdiction.
The existing by-law provisions relating to listing criminal convictions, charges, etc. on the public register were deleted and replaced with the language of the new provisions from the regulation.
