Changes in Leadership at the CTCMPAO

Dear Members:

There have been some changes in leadership at the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists of Ontario (CTCMPAO).

Effective February 26, 2016, Allan Mak, the former Director, Administration and Professional Practices, became the College’s Interim Registrar and Chief Executive Officer. Mr. Mak has worked at the College since April 1, 2012 including as Acting CEO from June to December 2013. He has a strong vision and excellent institutional knowledge, and we are confident in his ability to effectively lead the College and regulate the profession in the public interest.

Mr. Mak assumes the role from Cristina De Caprio, who had been the College’s Registrar and CEO since December 2013.

During her tenure, Ms. De Caprio delivered the CTCMPAO Transparency report to the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care which outlined current CTCMPAO practices that reflect transparency and a commitment to further increase transparency. Ms. De Caprio also oversaw the creation of a Standard of Practice on the prohibition of a sexual relationship with a Patient and was a leading force in several successful College legal challenges.

The College would like to thank Ms. De Caprio for her contribution to the profession.

Do not hesitate to contact info@ctcmpao.on.ca with any questions.
