CPATA Announces New Discipline Committee Appointments

CPATA’s Discipline Committee supports our organization’s public interest mandate by hearing Applications from the Investigations Committee when referred, in order to enforce compliance by licensees with required ethical and practice standards in a fair, efficient and effective manner.  

Earlier this year, CPATA sought expressions of interest to fill at least two positions: one licensee and one non-licensee. The successful candidates must have knowledge of and experience in professional regulation, collaborative decision making, Codes of Conduct for regulated professionals, excellent attention to detail, the ability to work in a digital environment, and will possess a strong work ethic. The ability to conduct work in both official languages is an asset.  

CPATA was very pleased to receive numerous expressions of interest from licensees and non-licensees, and appreciates the interest expressed in joining CPATA in this capacity. 

Following a rigorous Board-approved recruitment process, CPATA is pleased to announce that on September 22, 2023 the Board approved the immediate appointment of the following three highly-qualified individuals: 

Sam Lanctin, BScPharm, MBA, ICD.D, New Brunswick– Sam was Registrar for the New Brunswick College of Pharmacists in New Brunswick for 11 years until 2021, and possesses a deep understanding of professional regulation at all levels. French is his first language, and he brings a wealth of knowledge and experience having also worked in business (private and corporate) and professional regulation consultancy. 

Guy Joubert, BA, JD, Manitoba – Guy is a lawyer and Trademark Agent (inactive) and conducts his work in both official languages. He is a member of the Law Society of Manitoba, and was a partner with Aikins, MacAulay & Thorvaldson LLP practicing corporate, commercial and IP law for 22 years. He served as National President of the Canadian Bar Association, was a member of IPIC until 2016 and registered with CIPO from 1989 – 2021. 

Susan Boulter, BA, Manitoba – Susan is a retired senior executive with extensive public sector, board and volunteer experience. She served as COO of the Vital Statistics Agency Special Operating Agency, and Chair of the Funeral Board of Manitoba from 2007 – 2014.

In that capacity, Susan wrote the Code of Ethics and led changes to the Funeral Directors and Embalmers Act, as well as chairing all hearings and writing discipline decisions.
