The CDSBC Bylaws are the rules that govern the management of the College and its registrants. The bylaws provide the framework for our day-to-day operations, including the duties and responsibilities of the governing board, committees and the Registrar; qualifications for registration; and the regulation of professional conduct, quality assurance, corporations, and ethics.
CDSBC Bylaws (consolidated February 2022)
The bylaws are dynamic and are occasionally updated by the College. Any changes must be consulted upon and approved by the CDSBC Board before being filed with the Ministry of Health. See the table below for notice of bylaw changes and links to updated documents.
