Meet Kristin Taylor, our new Board of Examiners Chair

The Board of Examiners is a committee of ten seasoned physiotherapists from across the country that help CAPR make important Physiotherapy Competency Exam decisions. For example, this is the panel that reviews all safety or professional concerns identified by Examiners during the exam.

Our previous chairperson, Victor Brittain of Vancouver, recently resigned after several years of dedicated service. The CAPR Board of Directors has appointed Kristin Taylor as the new BOE chair.

Kristin works at the IWK Health Centre in Halifax, the largest pediatric hospital east of Montreal. She has worked there as a clinician and a professional practice leader. She now manages 11 ambulatory surgical clinics with a large multi-disciplinary team.

Kristin describes physiotherapists as professionally-trained problem solvers which has prepared her well for leadership and managing complex environments.

She has been on CAPR’s Board of Examiners since 2015. Her commitment to the BOE stems from her belief that the committee is doing important work to help regulators ensure that the right people—safe, ethical, competent—are eligible to practice physiotherapy.

CAPR is grateful to Kristin and all of the many volunteers who help CAPR achieve our mission which is to support the physiotherapy community in protecting the public.
