We acknowledge that Manitoba is on the original lands of the Dakota, Anishinaabeg, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota, Dené, Inuit and Métis Nation. We acknowledge that the College of Registered Psychiatric Nurses of Manitoba is located on Treaty One territory. We respect the Treaties that were made on these territories, and we acknowledge the harms and mistakes of the past. We dedicate ourselves to moving forward in partnership with First Nations, Métis, and Inuit communities in a spirit of reconciliation and collaboration.


On June 1, 2022 we came under The Regulated Health Professions Act and our board is now called a council.

Council is comprised of members of the CRPNM elected by their peers and members of the public appointed by the Council or by government. It consists of eleven (11) members, seven (7) of whom are Registered Psychiatric Nurses and members of the College, and four (4) of whom are public representatives.

As the governing body of the CRPNM, the Council provides oversight to ensure the College meets its mandate and that it operates effectively and in the best interest of all its stakeholders. Council members direct the affairs of the organization with an overall responsibility for strategic planning, finances, organizational operations and human resources.
