Keeping our public meetings public

To allow the public to continue to watch our processes in action during COVID-19, CNO is now livestreaming both our discipline hearings and Council meetings.

Before COVID-19, all hearings and Council meetings were held at the CNO office in Toronto, and the public could attend. When our office closed on March 16 in the interest of public health and safety, in-person attendance became impossible. But our commitment to ensuring the public has access to the meetings has not changed.

We’ve started holding discipline hearings by videoconference and livestreaming them on YouTube. (Discipline hearings remain open to the public, unless there is a publication ban.) To learn more about watching a hearing, read our Discipline Hearings page. To attend a hearing, please contact the Hearings Administration Group.

In June, we successfully livestreamed our Council meeting for the first time. To learn how to watch our quarterly Council meetings — the next one is on September 17 — watch for the link on our Council Meetings page. You can also follow our live Council meetings on Twitter.
