August 15, 2019
On August 13, 2019 the Board of the College of Dental Surgeons of BC (CDSBC) approved amendments to the CDSBC Bylaws under the
Health Professions Act to deliver specific changes requested by the Minister of Health as described in a
letter to the Board on July 15, 2019. In that letter, the Minister outlined concerns about the pace of critical and substantive changes needed in order to move forward on the College's
Health Professions Act (Section 19) allows the Board to propose, amend or repeal bylaws consistent with the duties and objects of a college under section 16 of the Act.
The Minister has shortened the bylaw posting and filing periods so that the changes will be in force on September 16, 2019.
The amended bylaws are presented as a red-lined version and as a clean version below. The key changes are summarized in a
schedule of changes (PDF).
