The Regulated Health Professions Act (the “Act”) requires that the Council provide members a copy of any proposed by-laws for review and comment. The proposed by-laws include changes to the definition of ‘good standing’, the title of the Executive Director/Registrar to align with the provisions of the Act and current regulatory practice, and extends the period for the renewal of a Certificate of Practice.
The proposed by-laws also include a new section related to Health Professions Corporations. The Act and the College of Registered Psychiatric Nurses of Manitoba General Regulation (the “General Regulation”) permit Registered Psychiatric Nurses to establish a Health Professions Corporation to carry on the practice of the profession under a name approved by the Registrar. The Act requires that the College establish and manage a Health Professions Corporation Permit Registry. The new by-laws are added to ensure consistency with the Act and the provision in the General Regulation.
To assist members to review the proposed by-law changes, an annotated version of the changes is found here.
Comments will be accepted from May 6 to May 16, 2023, and should be submitted to the Council of the College at email@example.com.
The Council will review and consider all comments received.

The Council approved a fee increase of 4% ($24), setting the 2024 RPN Certificate of Practice fee at $618 (plus the GST).
The 2024 Graduate Psychiatric Nurse (GPsyN) Certificate of Practice fee is set at $125 (plus the GST).
