Commission By-law Update, Licence and Audit Forms Updated 

At the beginning of the pandemic, the Commission waived the requirement to have licence applications and audit forms notarized. At the last Board of Directors meeting, this requirement was removed permanently. The Commission By-law was updated to repeal by-law 336(a), which required licence applications to be notarized. By-law 336(b) was updated to include additional disciplinary measures that may result from submitting false information on licence applications.

The new wording of 336(b) is as follows:

Submitting false information in the course of applying for a licence is an offence under this by-law, and may result in the refusal of the application, disciplinary proceedings and/or the suspension or cancellation of any license issued thereupon. 

The requirement to have audit forms notarized was also removed. Per existing by-law 634, licensees are prohibited from making false or misleading statements in any financial records or reports required to be furnished under the Act, the By-law, or Commission Policies.

Updated licensing and audit forms are available for download on the Commission website.
