Our purpose is to protect the public by promoting safe nursing practice.

CNO aims to prevent harm by identifying potential sources and addressing them before they can negatively impact the public. We are committed to a whole-system approach to nursing regulation and working with you to make a greater collective impact on the patient care system. 

Strategic Plan 2021-2024

Our strategic plan will ensure that we continue to deliver on our purpose.



“When we began working on a new strategic plan, we chose an approach that would strengthen our position as a leader in patient safety in a rapidly changing health care environment. This led to an exciting journey that encouraged us to think more broadly about our role as a regulator and transform how we see the future.”

Anne Coghlan, Executive Director & CEO
