About Us

We do all our work in support of the public interest.

The Canadian Alliance of Physiotherapy Regulators (CAPR) is a credentialling and assessment agency that provides Evaluation Services on behalf of our members – the Canadian provincial and territorial physiotherapy regulators (called Colleges).

On behalf of our members, we review the education and qualifications of applicants educated outside of Canada to determine whether or not they are substantially different from those of Canadian-educated physiotherapists.

For both Canadian- and internationally educated physiotherapists, we administer the Written Component of the Physiotherapy Competency Examination (PCE) to determine a candidate’s readiness for safe, effective and independent physiotherapy practice.
