Weekly update

All clinical exams have been cancelled until further notice.  CAPR is not accepting new registrations.

Last week the Board of Directors took the difficult decision to cancel the virtual clinical component of the PCE.  While further investigation will be required to identify the cause of the technological challenges that arose for many candidates, the Board recognized that the lack of stability in the exam platform added to the unacceptable level of stress experienced by the candidates.  Proceeding without being able to offer stability was unacceptable.

If you had registered for the exam, you should have received an email notification of the cancellation.   If you did not, please check your email ‘junk’ folder.

All candidates who were registered for the exam will receive a full refund of the registration fee and any change request fee they may have paid.

Candidates will receive an email today (September 21) asking them to provide their banking information in order to receive their refund by Electronic Funds Transfer (direct deposit). The deadline for responses is September 27 in order to receive a refund by September 30. Candidates should check their inbox and their junk mail folders for this email. Candidates who do not receive the email should contact

All candidates should contact the jurisdiction in which they wish to be registered to identify what they must do to complete their registration requirements.

CAPR has no authority over registration decisions:  Each jurisdiction will respond to the cancellation of the clinical exam differently, in accordance with the rules and regulations in their province or territory.  All candidates should contact their own regulator to determine next steps.

Written exams will continue as previously scheduled.

We know that the delay in completing requirements to qualify for full registration as physiotherapists has been a tremendous burden to candidates and we deeply regret this.   We anticipate that the clinical component of the exam will resume in person in accordance with public health guidelines, but are unable to provide anticipated delivery dates given the ongoing uncertainty due to the pandemic.
