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. 


Vote in the Election

Voting is your opportunity to help choose the people who oversee the regulation of the profession. Between March 11 and April 14, members in Districts 3 (South East Region) and District 4 (Central East Region) will be able to cast their vote to elect members to the College's Council.* 

Diversity is a key component of an effective Council, bringing together the breadth of perspectives needed to govern a profession as diverse as the children and families of Ontario. 

Council members help to build public trust and confidence in the profession. Through their work on committees, they oversee policy direction, and make decisions related to entry to practise requirements, ethical and professional standards, and professional misconduct, incompetence and incapacity. All of these decisions play a big part in shaping what RECEs do, every day, in their professional practice.

Have your say in who helps to govern the profession: check your inbox; read over the biographies for the candidates running in your district; and cast your vote!

*District 8 (South West Region) has two seats available on Council and two candidates were nominated.  Therefore, in accordance with the College’s by-laws, they have been elected to Council by acclamation and no election is required for District 8.

“Serving on Council as an elected member is a transformational experience. Consider running!  It helped me to explore deep and important topics of leadership within a regulatory frame which enables me to be an informed advocate and champion for the protection of the public interest. My experience has given me concrete tools and practices that will allow me to serve as an engaged leader and member of the ECE profession.”

 – Kristine Parsons RECE
