Circulation of By-laws
Council proposes to make two by-laws
At its meeting, Council voted to approve the 2020 Budget and maintain the current fee of $1,725 for a Certificate of Registration for the 2020 year — for the second year in a row.
Council also agreed to a proposal to no longer charge fees for certificates of professional conduct ($75); wall diplomas ($75); or for making name changes on the College register ($25). This proposed by-law is not in effect until the by-law is ratified at the March Council meeting.
The Council of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario proposes to make the following By-law No. 132, after circulation to stakeholders:
By-law No. 132 (1)
Sections 14, 15 and 16 of By-Law No. 2 (the Fees and Remuneration By-Law) are evoked.
Council also approved circulating a bylaw that proposes the 14-day recount period following Council election be shortened to three business days. With electronic elections, a long recount period is not necessary. This will enable earlier communication of the results to members after election day.
The Council of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario proposes to make the following By-law No. 134, after circulation to stakeholders:
By-law No. 134
(1) Section 21 of the General By-law is revoked and the following is substituted:
21. (1) A candidate may require a recount by giving a written request to the registrar no more than three business days after the date of an election and paying a fee of $500.
(2) The registrar shall hold the recount no more than thirty days after receiving the request.
