Over the past year, we redesigned our committee structure to embrace leading regulatory practices and reflect our over-arching commitment to protecting patients and the public. The new committee structure was implemented in July 2020 and is a direct result of the
Action Plan CDSBC developed in response to the
CDSBC’s new committee structure has 10 committees and
organizes the committees into three types: regulatory, professional standards, and Board committees. CDSBC currently has one working group.
The committee terms commence on July 1 of each year. Chair selection is underway. Click on the committee or working group in the list below to find out more.
