General Bylaw and College Rules

The General By-Law No.1, which addresses the operational affairs of the College, was revised by the CVRP Corporate Counsel prior to the 2014 AGM.  The revisions were completed to bring the By-Law No.1 into alignment with the Canada Not-For-Profit Corporations Act to allow the College to continue under the Canada Not-For-Profit Corporations Act.  This document was passed by the Board of Directors on  October 29, 2014 and ratified at the AGM on December 3, 2014.


In late 2015, there was a further revision of the Bylaws  to encompass the change of the registration credentials from CVA, CVS, CVP and MCVP to all registrants registered as  Certified Vocational Rehabilitation Professionals (CVRP), with the classification distinctions of Intern, Provisional, Fellow and Diplomate. The sub-specialty registration credential of Canadian Certified Vocational Evaluator, with the classification distinctions of Fellow and Diplomate, was also added in the November 2015 revisions.  The  revised and member ratified General By-Law N o. 1 was posted on this page following the College AGM of December 2nd, 2015.


Applying due diligence, the Board of Directors conducted a review of the General By-Law No.1 in the fall of 2017.  Some minor definition and wording changes were recommended to reflect wording in accordance to the Federal Not-For-Profit statute and the Objects listed in the College Articles of Incorporation.  These changes were ratified by vote at the November 1st, 2017 AGM.  A copy of the General By-Law No. 1 can be found here.
