The College’s Council sets the direction for the regulation of the nursing profession in Ontario.

Council establishes the goals, objectives and policies of the College according to the governing legislation.

Decisions are made in the public interest with an understanding of the profession and the different settings in which nurses practise.

Council is composed of 14 to 18 public members, 14 RNs and 7 RPNs. Nurses from across the province are elected to Council by their fellow College members, while public members are appointed by the provincial government.
