The College Council is conducting a Governance Review to identify and consider global trends and modern best practices that could further enhance public trust and safety in how the profession of naturopathy is governed.
The Governance Review process includes a number of components.
• Earlier this year we completed a Literature Review that has been summarized into a core document of key concepts, options and questions (Regulatory Governance – Key Concepts & Questions) for the College to consider in relation to modern governance.
• Council has hosted presentations from three other Ontario regulatory bodies to learn about these other Colleges’ experiences in conducting recent governance reviews of their own.
• The College initiated a consultation with naturopathic stakeholder organizations, the public, and College Members to get their input on the governance concepts and options that the College Council will explore.
• In January 2020, Council held a two-day facilitated workshop to review and consider governance options and possible changes – including feedback we received from the consultations - with a final public report being issued in 2020 (note the Spring 2020 date has been amended due to the COVID-19 pandemic.)
