Meet Ellen Snider

After wishing a happy retirement to Rebecca Bourdage in June, the College of Physiotherapists of New Brunswick has welcomed a new Registrar, Ellen Snider. Orig­inally a teacher by training, Ellen has a Bachelor’s degree in sci­ence and a Master’s degree in education.  Most recently Ellen was the Executive Director of the New Brunswick Association of Occupational Therapists. This association also acts as the regu­lator of OTs in New Brunswick, so for the last several years, El­len has learned a lot about regu­lation by working side by side with New Brunswick’s OT Regis­trar.

Ellen appreciates the support she has received from CAPR and told us “going to the Alliance website was one of my first steps. Being able to just phone or email has really helped in getting up to speed.”

Her priority right now is getting fully operational. That was made more complicated by a notice she received in September from the College’s landlord, giving them 3 months to find a new office and move out. Which she did! The CPTNB has successfully moved from downtown St. John to a new home in Rothesay, a nearby sub­urb. Everyone at CAPR wishes Ellen every success in settling into both her new role and into the College’s new offices.
