Special Resolution to Dissolve Society

 Bill 46 introduced by the Government of Alberta in December 2020 requires all dual mandate health colleges and associations to separate. As part of the ACAO’s transition to the College of Opticians of Alberta (COA), the COA must dissolve its registration as a society under the Societies Act of Alberta.

At a special meeting on January 9, 2022, optician members voted on the following resolution:

Be it resolved that the Alberta Opticians Association (the society registered by the Alberta College and Association of Opticians) dissolve its registration under the Societies Act in accordance with the mandatory separation of College and Association required by Bill 46.

The resolution passed with 84% in favour and 16% abstaining.
