Helping Foreign Physiotherapists Succeed in Canada

Program Helps Internationally Educated Physiotherapists Bring Valuable Skills to Our Health System As a physiotherapist who has had the opportunity to work in my field overseas, in Australia and New Zealand, and as a volunteer in South East Asia, South Asia and the Pacific, I appreciate the benefits of allowing foreign trained PT’s to practice their craft here in Canada.
