The registrant has undertaken not to utter a false document and has consented to: a letter of reprimand, to have the registrant’s registration with the college cancelled immediately, and to not reapply for registration with the College before March 1, 2021. The reasons for the undertaking, reprimand, cancellation of registration and the bar to reapplying for registration arise out of an incident of alleged uttering of a false document, specifically the faxing by the registrant to a mortgage broker of a purported verification of employment letter containing false and untrue statements concerning the registrant’s regular employment status and hours of work.

The Inquiry Committee confirmed a restriction on the registrant’s practice not to work with minors (under the age of 19) unless a responsible adult is present. This condition is based on incidents of physical violence that occurred in the mid 1990s. The Inquiry Committee recognized that there have been no other incidents since then but the Committee placed the condition to fully protect the public against any possible risk.
