By-Laws

The By-Laws of the College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Manitoba (CLPNM) are established by the CLPNM Board within its authority under The Licensed Practical Nurses Act. The By-Laws set out rules on matters such as:

  • how the CLPNM is to be governed
  • how meetings of the membership and of the Board are to be conducted
  • procedures and criteria for election and appointment to the Board
  • the committees that support the Board in its governance function, and
  • the rights, privileges and obligations of each class of membership.

2021 By-Law Amendments

In April 2021, the CLPNM Board of Directors approved amendments to the by-laws, which will be presented for review and ratification by members of the profession at the upcoming annual general meeting on June 7, 2021. The purpose of the by-law changes is to make the Board’s authority to hold meetings by virtual means explicit, and to describe the notice requirements for virtual meetings.
