CPBC matters in progress prior to the amalgamation date of June 28, 2024, will continue under the jurisdiction of the new amalgamated college: CHCPBC

On June 28, 2024, the College of Psychologists of BC (CPBC) will amalgamate with six other health profession regulatory colleges to form the College of Health and Care Professionals of BC (CHCPBC). The multi-profession college will regulate audiologists, dietitians, hearing instrument practitioners, occupational therapists, opticians, optometrists, physical therapists, psychologists, and speech-language pathologists.

As such, effective June 28, 2024, CPBC will cease operations as a stand-alone college regulating psychologists, and the CHCPBC will regulate psychologists under the Health Professions Act (HPA).

Important: For all CPBC matters in progress, as of June 28, 2024, falling under the HPA and/or the CPBC Bylaws, including, but not limited to, applications, complaints, discipline and continuing competency program requirements, please note the following:

The HPA, in a section on amalgamation, provides that:
1. CHCPBC may continue to exercise a power or perform a duty that began to be exercised or performed by CPBC before the amalgamation date (section 25.04(1)(a)); and
2. A CHCPBC committee may continue to exercise any power or perform any duty, that a CPBC committee having the same mandate began to exercise or perform before the amalgamation date (section 25.06(1)(a))

Consequently, all matters in progress prior to June 28, 2024, will continue under the jurisdiction of CHCPBC and the CHCPBC Registration Committee, Quality Assurance Committee, Inquiry Committee, Discipline Committee, and other relevant CHCPBC committees, effective June 28, 2024.
