Electoral Districts

​​​​​​The College is divided into eight electoral districts – or geographic regions – across the province. Each district, depending on its size, elects a specific number of members to Council every three years. While this ensures geographical representation from across the province, Council members make decisions in the public interest on behalf of the profession as a whole, rather than individual districts. ​​​​
