Meet Chris Boodram

While physiotherapists in all 10 provinces are regulated by a Col­lege with a Registrar, physiother­apists in the Yukon are regulated directly by the Government. Chris Boodram is the Regulatory Affairs Officer responsible for physio­therapists, licenced practical nurses, registered psychiatric nurses, dentists, dental hygien­ists and, interestingly, charitable gaming – bingo!  In addition, Chris is currently working to de­velop a regulatory framework for midwifery.

Chris, who is a member of CAPR’s pan-Canadian Registrars Committee, appreciates the sup­port that CAPR offers in the are­as of entry-to-practice competen­cy and credential assessments and in providing a forum for the 11 Canadian regulators to dis­cuss matters of mutual concern and share expertise. He de­scribes CAPR as ‘an extremely well-run organization’. Thanks Chris!

A social worker by training, Chris spent many years engaged in federal public health policy before heading to the Yukon with his partner. Originally a city boy, since moving to the Yukon he has fallen in love with the Canadi­an wilderness, taken up hiking and camping and has learned a tremendous amount about bear safety.

CAPR is grateful to Chris and the many other stakeholders and committee members who help CAPR achieve our mission which is to support the physiotherapy community in protecting the public.
