The main focus is toward implementation of the RGS and developing criteria, guidelines, and processes to support collective agreement and responsibility.

The RGS Review process was initiated in 2016 and is now entering the ‘Adopt’ phase, with a focus on community engagement regarding the draft bylaw, referrals, and the formal bylaw adoption process.
