Self-reporting Unprofessional Conduct
In accordance with Bill 21: An Act to Protect Patients which amends the Health Professions Act a regulated member who is charged criminally or found guilty of sexual behaviour with a patient in any jurisdiction, by any regulator, must self-report their behaviour to the College.
To self-report breaches in conduct to the College, regulated members of the College may use this form.
Please note: This form is for regulated members to self-report. The complaint form for complaints about the conduct of another practitioner can be found on the Complaints Process page.
Duty to Disclose
Bill 21 mandates an applicant must disclose any charges or findings of sexual misconduct or abuse to the College at initial registration and at every annual renewal. The College’s application forms have been revised to ask for this information and beginning with the 2019/2020 renewal the following questions will be asked:
- In the last 12 months have you been with the subject of a formal complaint resolution agreement, undertaking or hearing outcome with any regulatory body in any jurisdiction?
- Has a judgment in a civil action regarding your practice been made against you in the last 12 months?
If you have any questions about your obligation to self-report, contact the Registrar at firstname.lastname@example.org.
