Please note that by-laws may be repealed or amended at a general meeting by a majority vote of the membership.

In accordance with Section 55 of The Dental Hygienists Act, “The college may, by resolution passed at a general meeting, adopt a code of ethics governing the conduct of members.” Council is proposing to the membership that the CDHM adopts the CDHA’s Code of Ethics with the by-laws being revised accordingly.

If you require a copy of this proposed by-law change, please contact the CDHM office. As above, voting on the by-law change may take place in person at the AGM, by mail or by proxy. If you are not attending the AGM and wish to submit a by-law change voting card, please contact the CDHM via email at CDHM (at) cdhm.info or calling (204) 219-2678.
