THE REGULATED HEALTH PROFESSIONS ACT
Health regulatory colleges license most health-care professionals. We do this to protect you, the public.
Colleges are responsible for setting and enforcing standards, or rules, for their profession. Each college has a council which includes members of the public and of the profession. The council oversees and is accountable for the college’s activities. This is called self-regulation. Self-regulation is a privilege granted by government. It acknowledges that a profession is in the best position to regulate itself because of its specialized body of knowledge.

List of Regulators
You can expect safe, competent and ethical care from your regulated health professional. Each college sets rules for education, registration and practice expectations, supports their members in meeting those requirements and takes appropriate action if issues arise.
If you have a concern about the care you've received by a health professional, contact the appropriate regulatory body.
Our goal is safe,
quality health care.
The Regulated Health Professions Act is the legal framework under
which all regulated health professions will be governed.
The act has streamlined many processes across the 22 regulated health professions, including the complaints, investigation and discipline process.
The College of Audiologists and Speech Language Pathologists was the first college to come under the
Act in 2014.
The Government of Manitoba is currently working with the College
of Registered Nurses and the College of Physicians and Surgeons to
transition them to this new legislation. Eventually all colleges will fall
under this new Act.
