The College Board approved in principle, for public comment, the revised Bylaws at their Board meeting held on September 21, 2012. These bylaws were then posted in this space for public comment during the Fall of 2012. After completion of the public feedback period on December 28, 2012, the comments were reviewed, analyzed, and then presented to the Board for their consideration.
Based on the public feedback and submissions from other stakeholder groups including the Ministry of Health, the College Board approved a revised set of Bylaws at its meeting February 15, 2013. However, originally proposed bylaw changes prohibiting the provision of loyalty points/inducements on pharmacy purchases, establishing additional pharmacy licence types and creating a new definition for supervision have not been forwarded to government pending further review and refinement by the College.
Any further substantial bylaw changes in these areas, or any other that the Board wishes to pursue as part of its bylaw review process, will be posted online for further comment. We thank all those who took the time to provide their feedback in the Fall.
