Victoria & Islands Branch presents a discussion on "Right to Practice"
Date: February, 20, 2018
Time: 7:00 pm
Location: Longwood Brew Pub & Restaurant, , 5775 Turner Rd, Nanaimo, BC V9T 6L8
“Right to Title and Right to Practice” – Open Mic Discussion
Within the scope of the current provincial government review of the professional reliance model, changes to legislation governing professional associations may be considered. This potentially opens a window for changes to the Agrologist Act, and in particular changes that would support a “Right to Practice”, which BCIA Council would like to consider as they move forward with updates to our By-Laws and the development of a 5 year strategic plan. The issue of Right to Practice is a complex one that could have far reaching implications on the governance and practice of Agrology in BC.
The discussion will be led by JP Ellson (B.A., Hon. Cert., L.L.B.), BCIA’s new Executive Director, Registrar, and in-house legal councel, who will give a short presentation on the concepts of Right to Title and Right to Practice, and review agrology legislation in other provinces that provides for the Right to Practice and the potential implications of such a change to Agrologists in BC.
Coffee and light snacks will be provided.
Please register in advance as there is limited seating available (30)
