President’s Report

June 1st, 2017

Dear Colleagues,

As I near the end of the first year of my term as PEICA President, I am excited about the work that is happening in the area of regulation and I am full of optimism for the future of the counselling profession on PEI.

As Kim Bailey noted at our 2016 AGM, the main focus of our PEICA executive continues to be professional regulation. We are excited to announce that in March 2017 we were officially put on the list to be regulated under the Regulated Health Professions Act. There are a number of professions ahead of us but it is expected that government will begin work on our file in March 2019. I would like to thank Peter Mutch, Counselling Therapists Chapter Chair and our regulation committee members for their hard work and continued dedication to this important pursuit.

I would like to acknowledge Vice President, Bethany Toombs for her continued energy and effort in supporting the work of our association. I look forward to continuing to work with her as we move into the second year of our term. I wish to extend a heartfelt thank you to the hard work and dedication of Greg Anderson, Treasurer and Cindy Wood, Secretary for everything they have contributed to PEICA over the past two years. I wish to acknowledge the hard work of Barb MacKinnon and the Tri-PD planning committee and congratulate them on another successful Tri-PD conference. Thank you to Kylah Hennessey, who continues to work on the PEICA website and send out regular updates to the membership. Finally, thank you to Marion Clorey for the wonderful work she does for PEICA at both a local and national level and thank you for being my mentor as I navigate my way as PEICA president. Best wishes as you begin your second term as PEI Provincial Director with CCPA.

For those of you who are retiring this year, on behalf of PEICA, we wish you a happy retirement filled with health and happiness.

In closing, a huge thank you to our membership for your continued and much needed support. Together, we stand as a strong voice for our profession.

Best Regards,
Jane Munn
PEICA President
