Board Election

An election for the 2022-2023 Board of Directors was held on August 3, 2022. Candidates James Morrison and Andrea Fernandes were elected as pharmacist directors for a three-year term, and candidates Connie Beck and Jennifer Antunes were elected as pharmacy technician directors for a three-year and one-year term respectively.

The Board of Directors is the oversight and policy-making group for the College that ensures the interests of the public are protected and maintained through the development of policies and regulations. The Board comprises competent, strategic leaders who set the strategy for the College in fulfilling its mandate to protect patients across the province. All Board Directors share a fiduciary duty to serve and protect the public interest.

The next Board meeting will be held on September 12 & 13, 2022. The Board meeting agenda and materials will be posted to our Board Meeting & Reports page prior to the meeting.

Committee Recruitment

In June, the College initiated the recruitment of registrants to serve as Professional Committee Appointees and members of the public as Lay Committee Appointees to serve on any of the College’s eight (8) statutory committees and four (4) standing committees. All candidates are assessed using a competency-based recruitment and screening process.

The Board will approve the Committee slate at the September 2022 Board meeting and the College will subsequently announce the appointments following the meeting. Committee Appointees serve a one-year term which starts at the beginning of each Board year (September), renewable at the discretion of the College.

Committees support the work of the Board and contribute towards advancing the College’s mandate to serve and protect the public interest by helping to carry out the core functions of the College as set out in legislation and regulation, by-laws, and in alignment with the Board-defined strategic framework and priorities.
