Who Are We?

The Federation of Dental Hygiene Regulators of Canada (FDHRC) is a federation of organizations which have a statutory responsibility to regulate the profession of dental hygiene within their respective provinces.


The group works together:

  • to provide national leadership on issues concerning the protection of the public interest with respect to the profession of dental hygiene;
  • to provide a forum for networking and information exchange among Canadian dental hygiene regulatory authorities;
  • to develop quality benchmarks for dental hygiene accreditation standards and processes;
  • to ensure that valid, reliable examination mechanisms for assessing dental hygiene competencies are available to Canadian dental hygiene regulatory authorities;
  • to promote and monitor labour mobility and workforce planning for dental hygiene.
