Proposed Amendments to College Documents

As part of our efforts to increase transparency and in accordance with Schedule 2, 94(2) of the Health Professions Procedural Code under the Regulated Health Professions Act, 1991 the College of Opticians of Ontario will make available draft or proposed amended regulations, by-laws and policies for review and input where applicable for 60 days for review and comment.

Comments on posted draft or amended documents should be directed to the responsible department, using the e-mail address, telephone number and/or fax number provided. All comments received on or before the deadline date will be considered.

Upon consideration of the feedback, decisions will be made on what changes are required, if any, before the draft or amended document is approved by Council. Unless significant changes result in major alterations to the draft or amendments, the final version of the text will not be re-posted for comment prior to coming into effect. Final, approved documents will be posted as per the table below.

All current legislation, by-laws, Standards of Practice and policies of the College can be found in the Resources section of the website at http://www.coptont.org/RESOURCE/resource.php#bylaws.
