About the International Congress 

CLEAR’s Sixth International Congress on Professional and Occupational Regulation will bring together the international community of regulators and those affected by their work. Focusing on three broad themes, this dynamic and interactive forum will provide attendees information about latest innovations and developments, an opportunity to share challenges and solutions, and offer valuable networking opportunities with international colleagues from both health and non-health sectors.

Featuring Keynotes from:

Lieutenant-General (ret) The Honourable Romeo Dallaire of the Romeo Dallaire Child Soldiers Initiative.


Bob Rae, Current Canadian Special Envoy to Myanmar, former Leader of the Liberal Party of Canada, and former Premier of Ontario


Congress Themes

Global Mobility and Entry to Practice will focus on the challenges and opportunities created by increasingly mobile workforces, and discuss the issues occupational regulators face when performing the "gatekeeper" role that is fundamental to professional regulation.

Governance and Accountability in Professional Regulation will ask: who regulates, how is this task carried out, and is there an optimal model? The role of the profession/occupation will be considered, as will the part government and other critical stakeholders play. The latest trends in roles, structures, and approaches to oversight will be reviewed and discussed.

Striving for Continuing Competence will review the role of the regulator in ensuring competence is demonstrated throughout a registrant's career. The variety of approaches taken by jurisdictions and professions will be discussed as well as research on assessment for learning and assessment for improving practice.

The themes of the Congress are pertinent to regulators regardless of which profession(s) or occupation(s) they regulate.
