In the article, Mr. Taylor aptly describes the common responsibilities, and hence, the costs incurred, by all regulatory colleges in carrying out the task required to meet the statutory obligations to regulate a profession.
The article is written from the Ontario perspective. Some of the terminology is specific to regulation according to Ontario statute. Generally speaking, similar principles apply across jurisdictions.
