GOVERNANCE POLICY: GP-17.2  Policies Required by External Bodies

 POLICY TYPE: Governance Process
 DATE APPROVED: April 16, 2010

This policy governs the handling of policies governing the practice of medicine that Council is required to support before they can take effect.  These policies are different from College generated policies for two reasons.  First, they do not coincide with the Council’s policy cycle, and second, they originate outside the College. 

  1. Council is ultimately responsible for deciding whether or not to approve these policies, but will do so according to this policy.

  2. Council will examine evidence from the Registrar that adequate research has been done to bring such a policy before Council for approval.
