The following is an announcement from the Office of the Superintendent of Professional Governance
Several opportunities to become a lay councillor for regulatory bodies in the province are currently available.
Lay councillors play an important role in bringing outside perspectives to the governance of the regulatory bodies and will work with registrant councillors during this critical time when the regulatory bodies are preparing to transition under the Professional Governance Act. The regulatory bodies ensure the competent and ethical practice of its registrants in support of the public interest.
Lay councillors must not be registrants of the regulatory body they serve and should be free of actual and perceived conflicts of interest in their role. Preference will be given to those who have a broad interest in the mandate of the regulatory body; time and ability to devote to council business through both in-person and electronic means; experience in non-profit board governance; experience in professional regulation and related administrative law; and a record of community service.
