In this session participants explore how professional licensing in Ontario has changed since fair access laws came into effect in 2006. Regulatory bodies must have registration/licensing that is “transparent, objective, impartial and fair.” The regulators are making good progress, and the Commissioner describes what she has learned from their initial reports and compliance audits.

A representative of Ontario Regulators for Access, a consortium of over 25 regulatory bodies, speaks about how the regulatory bodies have been sharing best registration practices over the past eight years and, in particular, its wide-ranging project on managing cultural differences.

Presenters: Hon. Jean Augustine was appointed as the first fairness commissioner for the province of Ontario in March 2007. Ms. Augustine was born in Grenada and came to Canada in 1960. She attended the University of Toronto, where she earned bachelor of arts and master of education degrees. She was an elementary school principal with the Metropolitan Separate School Board in Toronto. From 1988 until 1993, she was chair of the Metro Toronto Housing Authority.
