HEALTH REGULATORS

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.

YOUR HEALTH

Safe and Ethical Care

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

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

What is the RHPA?

The Regulated Health Professions Act (RHPA) is umbrella legislation, which will replace the current acts and regulations of all regulated health professions, once they come under the RHPA. The updated website can be accessed here: http://www.gov.mb.ca/health/rhpa/index.html

 

Which professions are governed under the RHPA?

There are two colleges, which regulate three professions, currently governed under the RHPA:

  • The College of Audiologists and Speech Language Pathologists   (CASLPM) – Jan. 1, 2014
  • The College of Registered Nurses of Manitoba (CRNM) – May 31, 2018

 

The members of health professions that are not yet under the RHPA may continue to perform reserved acts that are within their scope of practice  under their existing profession-specific acts.

 

Although RNs may no longer accept the delegation of the performance of reserved acts, this does not prevent other colleges from continuing to permit their members to delegate the performance of reserved acts to health professionals/health care providers other than RNs and to accept the delegation of the performance of reserved acts from other health professionals.

 

What happens next?

The Government of Manitoba is currently working with the College of Physicians and Surgeons (CPSM) and the College of Registered Psychiatric Nurses (CRPNM) to transition them to this new legislation. Eventually all professions will become governed under this new Act but we do not have          a specific timeline for when this will happen.
