Have Your Say in ACOT’s New Standards of Practice (SoP) and Code of Ethics (CoE)
The members of the Refresh Project Working Groups and Steering Committee have worked together with ACOT staff since May 2022 to prepare the draft set of fifteen SoP and the draft CoE. The content in the new SoP and CoE has been included based on consultation with registrants in March 2022, a fulsome review of other college’s SoP and CoE (provincially, nationally, internationally), consultation with legal counsel and other key partners, and follow-up consultation with registrants August-December 2022.
Prior to sending the draft SoP and CoE into government for review, you have one last opportunity to review and provide feedback on the full set of SoP and CoE. For ease, feedback surveys have been created for each standard and the Code of Ethics. Check out the Standards of Practice Consultation page of the ACOT website for information on timelines for adopting the new SoP and CoE once they are finalized and links to the feedback surveys.
The surveys will remain open until Monday February 13, 2023. You are welcome to complete as many or as few surveys as your time permits and can complete the surveys on your own or as a group (e.g., staff/team meeting, community of practice meet-up, etc.).
We look forward to hearing from you in the coming weeks.
