Registed Nurses' Association of Ontario


RNAO submission: Bill 106: Pandemic and Emergency Preparedness Act, 2022

On April 6, RNAO sent a submission to the standing committee on finance and economic affairs regarding Schedule 6 of Bill 106: Pandemic and Emergency Preparedness Act, 2022.

The submission states that RNAO strongly endorses amendments in the following areas of the Regulated Health Professions Act, 1991:

  1. Canadian experience
  2. Language proficiency 
  3. Amount of time in which Colleges must make decisions
  4. Emergency classes of registration

The proposed changes will will facilitate fair and timely consideration of applications for registration for internationally educated nurses (IEN), and are important to Ontario’s critically understaffed nursing workforce. 

Read the full submission online.
