Professional self-regulation is a privilege that is carried out in the public interest, and work of this nature must be done in a fair, transparent and accountable manner.
We advise regulators as well as those who work in regulated professions.
With respect to regulators, we assist in all aspects of their public interest mandate, including legislative interpretation and drafting, advice on admission practices and appeal processes, conducting investigations, regulatory prosecutions, training and advising hearing panels, and representation in court.
Our understanding of regulatory processes enables us to represent members of a profession regarding a complaint or charges. This can entail response to a complaint, advising on rights and obligations throughout an investigation and, when necessary, providing representation in disciplinary proceedings.
We also provide regulation “best practices” training to regulators, their members, and volunteers.
