If a complaint is referred to a hearing, the Hearings Director will set a hearing date and provide you and the investigated person with notice of the date, time, and location of the hearing. Hearings are open to the public unless the Hearing Tribunal orders otherwise.
The purpose of the hearing is to ensure that the Hearing Tribunal has enough information to decide if the conduct of the investigated person does or does not constitute unprofessional conduct. As the complainant, you may be called as a witness, but you will not make submissions on your own behalf.
If the Hearing Tribunal finds that there has been unprofessional conduct, it can do one or more of the following:
(a) caution or reprimand the investigated person;
(b) impose conditions on the investigated person’s practice permit,
(c) require the investigated person to satisfy the Hearing Tribunal that she/he is not incapacitated,
(d) require counselling or a treatment program,
(e) require a course of study,
(f) suspend or cancel the investigated person’s practice permit,
(g) impose fines, or
(h) make any other appropriate order.
You and the investigated person will receive a copy of the decision.
