Survey of Registrants- Definition of Agrology Areas of Practice

February 10, 2022 - PRESIDENT'S SPECIAL REPORT to REGISTRANTS

Definition of Agrology Areas of Practice

Survey of Registrants

As many of you know, reserved practice (“Practice Rights”) will come into force for our profession on September 1st of this year, a short seven months from now. A primary foundation of those rights are definitions of agrology areas of practice that are clear, accountable, and enforceable. To achieve this, BCIA has engaged Keith Duhaime PAg, and Bonnie Keleher as consultants to our PGA Working Group (“Working Group”), using their previous experience with the definitions of both regulated and reserved practice for our profession.

Our Working Group has proposed a new set of practice areas, the details of which can be found in the survey and on the PROPOSED PRACTICE AREAS webpage. The survey itself can be accessed at SURVEY MONKEY. As you will see from the survey, your responses to the listed questions will be crucial in moving this aspect forward and meeting the legislated timeline. We encourage you to complete the survey as soon as possible. A high participation rate and complete answers will accurately describe our profession as we move into the new era of practice rights. Please note that the deadline for completing the survey is February 25.

On behalf of the BCIA Council, we express our appreciation to the Working Group for the tremendous amount of work that has resulted in the list of proposed new areas of practice. Your participation in the survey will ensure that their work will form the basis of our profession for years to come.

Yours Truly

Jessica Morgan PAg, President BCIA
