Nature of Action: A panel of the Discipline Committee was convened to hear a formal citation issued to Anuraj (Anu) Gill. The citation contained a charge that Mr. Gill failed to reply to communications from CMTBC in a timely or responsive manner, or at all, regarding his Standard First Aid/CPR-C certification and his non-responsiveness to requests from CMTBC for information about the same.
The hearing was held over two days (January 29 and April 30, 2019).
At the outset of the hearing, Mr. Gill remained a registrant of CMTBC. His registration was automatically cancelled under CMTBC’s Bylaws on February 1, 2019, due to his failure to renew his registration.
The panel issued an order and reasons dated May 13, 2019, in which the panel determined, pursuant to section 39(1)(b) and (c) of the Health Professions Act (the “Act”), that Mr. Gill failed to comply with a standard imposed under the Act (namely, he did not comply with section 28 of CMTBC’s Code of Ethics) and committed unprofessional conduct.
Reasons: The panel found that Mr. Gill failed to cooperate with CMTBC in responding to its communications in a responsive and timely manner. By failing to cooperate with CMTBC over the course of approximately one year, the panel found that Mr. Gill impeded CMTBC’s statutory obligation to regulate the profession.
