If you are dissatisfied with the way your application is processed or with the action of any other actor in your admissions process, two appeals are possible:
Candidates who receive a decision from the executive committee that does not grant them equivalence or grants them partial equivalence may request a review of the decision, on condition that they make the request in writing to the secretary within 30 days of the date on which they receive the decision.
The review is conducted within 60 days of the date on which this request is received by a committee formed by the Board of Directors and composed of individuals who are not members of the executive committee or the admissions committee.
Prior to making a decision, the committee must inform review requesters of the date of the meeting at which their request will be reviewed and of their right to share their observations.
Review requesters may attend the meeting to share their observations if they inform the secretary at least 5 days prior to the scheduled date of the meeting. However, they may also send the committee their written observations at any time prior to the scheduled date of the meeting.
The decision of the committee is final and must be sent by registered mail to review requesters within 30 days of the date on which it was rendered.
There is no charge for processing a review request.
Le commissaire à l'admission aux professions receives and examines all complaints concerning admission to professions. It makes the recommendations it deems useful.
Persons who have submitted an application for recognition of equivalence or training to the Order as well as any other person who wishes to obtain a permit from the Order (or special authorization) may file a complaint with the commissioner if they are dissatisfied. the way their application is processed by the Order or the action of any other actor in their admissions process.
In addition, anyone can bring to the attention of the commissioner a problem observed in an admissions process. It is not necessary to file a complaint as such; these statements are treated confidentially. The Commissioner may conduct an investigation at the appropriate time, as part of the process audit.
You may file a complaint with the Commissaire if you are not satisfied with the way the Order is processing or has processed your application for diploma or training equivalence.
