RCDSO Elections

Bring your talent and enthusiasm for strategic thinking; quality of patient care; financial planning; and policy development to the College to make decisions and set directions that enhance public interest protection to the College Council (Board of Directors).

We continue to strengthen our competency-based assessment process and are focused on enhancing the skill set and diversity of perspectives on Council. Applicants must meet competency requirements to be eligible to run for election to Council.

Council candidates must first demonstrate that they meet these competencies by completing the Council candidate application form, uploading a curriculum vitae and writing a brief statement of interest setting out why they wish to run, their qualifications and relevant experience.

The determination about whether candidates can stand for election is made by the Governance Committee, composed of public and professional Council members, and external subject matter experts with expertise in professional regulation and governance.

All candidates must also complete an online orientation module about the expectations and duties of Council and committee members, and the role of the College. The module takes 45 minutes to complete and will provide interested candidates insight into whether their skills, interests and experience are well suited for a role on Council and aligned with the College’s public interest mandate.

Equity, diversity and inclusion

Equity, diversity and inclusion is a priority for the College. We encourage applications from minority populations, including persons of colour, Indigenous persons, individuals with disabilities, women, persons who identify as immigrants and members of the LGBTQ2S+ community.
