Manitoba Fairness Commissioner’s Report

On Progress in Fair Registration Practices – January 2013 – December 2014

We regret the inaccuracies in the report and apologize for any resulting inconveniences.

College of Dietitians of Manitoba

The College of Dietitians of Manitoba provides a practicum program of assessment which can provide applicants with information on gaps and direction to meet qualification requirements. An applicant with gaps is asked to apply for a dietetic internship in Manitoba, or a bridging program in either Alberta, Nova Scotia or Ontario as no bridging program exists in Manitoba.

College of Midwives of Manitoba

The Multi-jurisdictional Midwifery Bridging Program (MMBP) which assessed and gap trained internationally educated midwives, involved a 6 week out of province travel commitment and one Manitoba applicant graduated from the program. In 2013 the MMBP intensive was offered in Manitoba.

College of Physiotherapists of Manitoba

The College of Physiotherapists of Manitoba does not have a new prior learning assessment in place since 2013. The Canadian Alliance of Physiotherapy Regulators has a prior learning as part of its initial assessment and this has been in place since well before 2013.

College of Registered Nurses of Manitoba

The initial application assessment conducted by the National Nursing Association Service currently takes about 8 weeks.

Manitoba Dental Association

The pass rate for the Equivalency Assessment Program of the National Dental Examining Board (NDEB) between 2011 and 2014 is higher than 5-15%. The NDEB estimates a number as high as 36%.

 

Manitoba Fairness Standard

The Fairness Standard Guide is designed for the purpose of evaluating the fairness of assessment and registration practice. The elements, criteria and explanations outlined in this document further define the Fairness Standard and help articulate the type of actions required to meet the Fairness Standard.  In the 2016-17 Registration Review, registration practice will be evaluated with the elements and criteria covering the critical issues of timeliness, the recognition of professional work experience and supervised practice opportunities.  Varying by profession, other elements and criteria may also be enlisted to address additional areas where significant progress opportunities are identified.
