February Virtual Discussion Event: What is the Public Interest?

Join us in this virtual discussion as panelists explore:

  • Is the concept of public interest so ill-defined that it is not useful and possibly harmful?

  • Harry Cayton proposes object statements should be more direct and provide less 'wiggle room.' Would you agree?

  • Assuming that governments are not going to tighten object statements at this time, what are we to do?

  • One interesting development has been in Alberta, where the government has mandated that regulatory colleges divest themselves of association functions. Will this resolve the issue?


Date: February 2nd, 2022 Time: 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM ET Location: Zoom (link to be sent out prior to event)
