Office of the Manitoba Fairness Commissioner

Please click on image to ENLARGE:

As outlined in the Act and at times specified by the Fairness Commissioner, regulators must review their registration practices and provide the Office with a report and analysis of:

  • Registration practices
  • Timelines for decision-making
  • Registration fees
  • Registration of internationally educated applicants

The Registration Review process takes 3 months to complete. OMFC works with the regulator to gain a clear understanding of their registration process. The Office identifies any registration practices that are non-compliant or show a need for improvement. In response, the regulator writes an Action Plan that outlines the actions the regulator will take to refine its registration practices. The Office supports the regulator’s efforts to address these areas of concern.
