Inquiry


The Inquiry Committee (IC) receives and reviews complaint information or other information that could give rise to an investigation, directs the investigation process and subsequently assesses whether remedial and/or disciplinary action against a registrant is warranted.

Overv​​iew

The IC members are a combination of registrants and members of the public. Committee appointments are for 1, 2 or 3 year terms. A person can be appointed to the IC committee for up to six consecutive years.

Comm​​itment

Regular IC meetings are by teleconference and are on average scheduled for 2 hours, with preparation time averaging 4 to 6 hours for each 2-hour meeting. The full IC committee is large and only meets as a full committee once per year for orientation. The majority of the work of the IC is done in panels of three. IC panels meet two times a week.

Individual committee members should be prepared to attend at least one regularly scheduled meeting every 1-2 months. Considerations for panel involvement can include previous case file involvement, subject matter expertise required and IC member availability. On occasion, there are follow-up panel meetings required to review/approve consent agreements or obtain direction on an individual case file – these meetings are generally 1 hour.
