Health Professions Act

The Health Professions Act (the “Act”) is the primary legislative authority under which CLPNBC carries out its mandate to govern the LPN profession in the interest of protecting public safety.

The Board is responsible for ensuring that CLPNBC meets the objects specified in the Act and in CLPNBC's Bylaws.

Section 16 (1) of the Act states it is the duty of a college at all times:

  • to serve and protect the public, and
  • to exercise its powers and discharge its responsibilities under all enactments in the public interest.
