Registration Appeals Committee

Chair: Elayne Tanner, RSW

As part of its duty to serve and protect the public interest, the College is required to have a Registration Appeals Committee. The Committee reviews matters related to the registration of applicants in the College. If the Registrar proposes to refuse a certificate of registration to an applicant or proposes to place a term, condition or to issue a limitation on a registrant’s certificate of registration, to which the person does not consent, the applicant is given notice of the Registrar’s proposal, with written reasons for it. The applicant is notified that they have 60 days to request a review of the Registrar’s proposal. If the applicant requests a review, the Committee shall conduct the review.

In 2022, the Registration Appeals Committee:

  • Received five requests for review (three for social work and two for social service work).
  • Reviewed 13 requests for review. Five social work and five social service work requests were received in 2022; one social work and two social service work requests were received in 2023 with the following results:
    • Issued 12 written decisions with reasons, ten from 2022 and two from 2023.
    • Made one decision in principle.
