Inquiries, Complaints and Reports Committee

The ICRC is the statutory committee that investigates complaints and reports about College members. The Committee reviews the concerns and decides on an outcome that is consistent with its authority defined in the Regulated Health Professions Act.
The College typically holds 10 to 12 ICRC meetings each year. These are full day, in-person meetings held at the College offices in Toronto. Committee members are compensated for their time preparing for and attending meetings and reimbursed for expenses.


The Discipline Committee

The Discipline Committee is the statutory committee that holds public hearings during which it considers serious allegations about physiotherapists’ practice. Cases are referred to the Discipline Committee by the ICRC.

The College typically holds five to eight hearings each year. The length of each hearing may vary from one day to multiple days. Committee members are compensated for their time preparing for and attending hearings and reimbursed for expenses.

Interested applicants are invited to review previous decisions issued by the Discipline Committee here.
