College Introduction

Under the Regulated Health Professions Act, 1991 (RHPA) and the Traditional Chinese Medicine, Act, 2006, the transitional Council of the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists of Ontario (transitional Council) is, among other things, responsible for making regulations respecting the future self-regulating profession of traditional Chinese medicine in Ontario.

Under these Acts, the transitional Council may make regulations on a variety of subject matters, including professional misconduct, subject to the prior review of the Minister of Health and Long-Term Care and the approval of the Lieutenant Governor in Council.

A major function of the College will be to investigate complaints and concerns about members and to discipline members who engage in serious misconduct. The purpose of the professional misconduct regulation is to define for members of the College and the public the types of activities and behaviours that are unacceptable.
