"There are some professions that are regulated in Canada, ie, you need to be licensed
to practice by provincial authorities to practice. Engineers, engineering technicians
and technologists and physicans are among these. You have to get your qualifications
assessed for immigration purposes by the relevant accredition body before your
immigration request could be processed."

So, are physiotherapist, on this list and if they are does it mean that they have to
get licensed before they apply for immigration? Also, if they have to get licensed
before they apply for immigration how is the licensing done outside of Canada?

TIA

Hi:

The National Occupational Code states that the employment requirements for
physiotherapists are:

A university degree in physiotherapy and a period of supervised practical training
are required.

Registration with provincial and territorial regulatory boards is required to
practise physiotherapy.

In Quebec, membership in the professional corporation for physiotherapists is
mandatory.

Hi,

Physiotherapy is highly regulated like other medical specialities in Canada and you
have to get evaluated outside of Canada before applying for immigration as a P.T.

The organization in Canada for evaluating foreign P.T.'s is the Canadian Alliance of
Physiotherapy Regulators and their website is

http://www.alliancept.org/

You have to download the docs and forms in pdf format and then apply for evaluation.

Hope this helps,

peace®

PT are in high demand in Canada for Immigration purposes and from what I = can tell
looking at the papers it seems there is plenty of work in = reality too.

They do require evidence that they would be able to become licensed in = Canada so
the evaluation from the association is useful.
