Council Elections 2019

District 4 (Western), District 6 (All of Ontario) and District 7 (Central Western)

In 2019 the College of Opticians of Ontario will be holding elections in three districts: District 4 (Southern), District 6 (all of Ontario) and District 7 (Central Western).

Serving on Council is a rewarding way to contribute to public protection and the governing of the self-regulated profession of opticianry. Elected members of Council set the standards, policies and strategies to ensure that the public continues to receive ethical and safe eye care from competent opticians. Elected Council members represent the public in the Council's decision-making.

If you are a Registered Optician in good standing with the College and are interested in using your knowledge and skills in the interest of public protection you should consider entering a nomination. Eligibility requirements include residing in one of the districts where the election is being held. For more information contacts us at elections@coptont.org.
