Discipline decisions are made in complaint cases that are accepted by the registrar and enter the process defined in the bylaws. Once a complaint has concluded, information regarding the resolution is posted to the ABCFP website within two weeks of a panel decision or receiving signatures from the parties involved.
A decision may involve disciplinary action, alternative dispute resolution or dismissal of the allegations. Disciplinary actions arise from a settlement process and consent order or will be based on the decision of a hearing panel. These publications include as much detail as possible so that our members can learn from them and to serve as a public record of actions taken.
These decisions are organized in two sections based on whether disciplinary action was taken or not. They are listed by the date that the decision was made.
A third section contains the case where act enforcement was taken. They are listed by the date that the decision was made.
We publish our discipline cases in accordance to the following:
As a public body, the ABCFP adheres to the requirements of BC’s Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act. The Act defines the type of information that can be collected and limits what information can be disclosed. Consequently, some information stemming from the investigation or resolution of a complaint may not be publicly disclosed. The exceptions to disclosure are listed in FOIPPA in sections 12 to 22.
Should you have any questions regarding our publishing discipline case digests, please contact our registrar and director of act compliance.
