  • Ensuring that the health professional is qualified to practise;
  • Setting standards of practice and a code of ethics that the health professional must follow;
  • Requiring the health professional to be registered and licensed to use the title of the profession and perform certain services; and
  • Ensuring complaints about the professional are investigated and disciplinary action taken if necessary.

Public Representatives on Self-regulating Health Professional Associations

Each board or council of a self-regulating health profession in Saskatchewan includes a representative from the public to improve transparency and accountability.

These public representatives bring a public perspective on issues of concern presented to the council. As a member of the council, a public representative ensures that the profession:

  • Acts fairly;
  • Follows the appropriate legislation and bylaws;
  • Fosters appropriate standards of practice and professional ethics; and
  • Serves to protect the public interest.

The Ministry of Health is responsible for appointing members of the public to the councils of the self-regulating health professional associations.
