Draft bylaws for the College of Health and Care Professionals of British Columbia now available for feedback

Bylaws for the College of Health and Care Professionals of BC (CHCPBC) have been drafted and are now available for public feedback until June 14, 2024, 4:30 pm.

The draft bylaws are based on the Bylaws of CSHBC and the six other health profession regulatory colleges that will amalgamate on June 28, 2024, to form CHCPBC.

The draft bylaws do not propose changes to regulated health professionals’ scope of practice, registration, fees, practice standards, or quality assurance requirements.

The draft bylaws propose that the maximum Board size for CHCPBC will be 12 members: six public members and six registrant members.

The draft bylaws also reflect a move toward regulatory modernization and, in some cases, are anticipating requirements in the Health Professions and Occupations Act (HPOA), expected to be in force sometime in 2025. The HPOA will replace the Health Professions Act.

To read the draft bylaws, please visit the temporary CHCPBC website’s Bylaws page.
