Saskatchewan has many regulated health care professions. A regulated profession is one that is governed by an organization of people in the profession. The provincial government gives the organization legal authority to govern that occupation. These regulatory bodies are established by law to protect public safety by setting standards of practice and licensing or certifying qualified professionals.
