Bylaws for Comment: Establishing the Application Committee
The College is asking for your feedback on proposed Health Professions Act (HPA) Bylaws establishing an Application Committee. This committee will be needed when new amendments to the Pharmacy Operations and Drug Scheduling Act (PODSA) come into force. The PODSA amendments give the College the authority to identify pharmacy owners, and as part of this change, an Application Committee is required to review pharmacy licence applications that do not meet requirements in PODSA.
To review the changes see Bylaws for Comment: Establishing the Application Committee.
Comments on the proposed HPA Bylaws should be submitted to the College or to the Ministry of Health no later than February 16, 2017. For more information on submitting your comments click here.
