Discipline Committee

Hearing Tribunals and Complaint Review Committees (CRC) are established according to the regulations when a discipline matter requires a decision. Hearing Tribunals and Complaint Review Committees must consist of at least three members, and 25% or more of the members must be public members appointed by the Lieutenant Governor in Council. Registered Social Workers who have participated in a discipline training workshop with the ACSW and whose names are approved by Council are added to a roster from which members are selected on a case-by-case basis. Social Workers who are interested in taking the training should indicate their interest on the annual renewal form. Social Workers who have been a regulated member for at least five years are eligible to sit on the Discipline Committee. For information about the Discipline Process, go to Complaints and Discipline.
