Office of the Manitoba Fairness Commissioner

Please click on image to ENLARGE:

As outlined in the Act, the Fairness Commissioner has a responsibility to review the registration practices of the regulated professions for the purpose of determining compliance and to make recommendations to improve practice.

In the 2016-17 Registration Review OMFC worked with regulators to update information on their registration processes.  The Office reviewed progress made by each regulator since the previous review with focused analysis on the areas of timely registration, recognition of professional work experience and supervised practice opportunities.  OMFC identified opportunities for progress and recommended regulator follow-up.  In response, regulators prepared Action Plans with commitments to move forward and improve practices. Action Plans will be reviewed with regulators on an annual basis with updates posted on this website.
