The Council establishes committees, such as the standing committee that ensures effective Council governance, leadership and succession or the standing committee that approves psychiatric nursing education programs. The Council also establishes any other committees it deems necessary to support their work.
The duties of some committees are set out in The Regulated Health Professions Act. The Complaints Investigation and Inquiry Committees are examples.
The Council may also, from time to time, appoint working or special committees, task forces or working groups to carry out the objectives of the College.
All committees perform their duties and functions in accordance with The Regulated Health Professions Act, the College’s general regulation and the terms of reference approved by the Council.
