Upcoming Election


"I ran for Council because I wanted to influence public confidence. I wanted to actively participate in improving the profession in a meaningful way and contribute to the transformation of the profession." – Council member​

One of the benefits of being registered professionals is that RECEs have a say in the governance of their profession. Members in good standing can nominate candidates for Council — or run for Council themselves —​ and vote in the election. 

The next election of Council members will take place in District 5 –​ Toronto Region and District 7 – Hamilton/Niagara Region. Nominations open on December 7, 2018 and voting opens on March 18, 2019.​​​​

Run for Council 

"I would tell anyone thinking of running for Council that it is incredibly rewarding and builds self-confidence and confidence in the profession as a whole. The work feels big, impactful and meaningful." – Council member​

Serving on Council is an exceptional opportunity to build public trust and confidence in the profession. Council members can share their professional experience, gain new leadership skills and c​onnect with RECEs across the province. Through their work on committees​, they oversee policy direction, and make decisions related to entry to practice requirements, ethical and professional standards, and professional misconduct, incompetence and incapacity.
