REGULATORY PERFORMANCE MEASUREMENT FRAMEWORK
Council approved the Regulatory Performance Measurement Framework that will be piloted in 2019-2020 and implemented going forward. The framework was developed after Council approved a new strategic plan in December 2016 that emphasized that College’s commitment to regulatory excellence, openness and accountability.
FEES & REMUNERATION BY-LAW PUBLIC CONSULTATION
The College held a public consultation from May to June for proposed changes to its Fees and Remuneration By-laws. The consultation was needed to address the increase in membership fees for 2019-2020. The College received feedback from 39 members and Council approved the consultation at the June council meeting. Read more about the consultation and members’ feedback here.
REVISIONS TO SEXUAL ABUSE PREVENTION POLICY
The Sexual Abuse Prevention Policy was approved by Council and implemented immediately. This policy sets the College’s definition of the beginning and end of a midwife-client relationship and assists midwives in complying with the provisions of the Regulated Health Professions Act, 1991 (RHPA) that address sexual abuse.
Council has approved a $50 reduction in the proposed membership fee increase for the General class. This adjustment comes after meeting with Council to present and discuss feedback from our Fees & Remuneration By-law public consultation and having more success than anticipated with reduced spending in 2018-2019.
