College Bylaw Amendment: Sections 1-9 and 9-3

With the establishment of the BC Centre for Substance Use (BCCSU), most components of the College’s current Methadone Maintenance Program will transition to the centre, including authorizing exemptions to physicians who wish to prescribe methadone for opioid use disorder under section 56 of the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act. The BCCSU will assume full responsibility of the program on June 5, 2017. To enable this change, the College is seeking to repeal the existing sections of the Bylaws that direct the Methadone Maintenance Program.
