The Standing Committee on Social Development, chaired by Mr. Shane Thompson, is reviewing two bills and will be in Hay River for a public hearing.
This Bill amends the Education Act to change the age of access to kindergarten programs from five years of age to four years of age. The Act is also amended to reduce the minimum hours of instruction required for grades 1 through 12.
This Bill amends the Health and Social Services Professions Act and imposes a requirement on registered members to comply with continuing competency recording requirements, and authorizes inspection of those records. It also authorizes the Minister to approve various items such as educational facilities, programs, and standards of practice.
