How to Use this Chart

The data in this chart is updated continuously and results should not be considered static. For quality assurance purposes, academic physiotherapy programs are slated for re-assessment by CAPR every 5 years. The data on this chart will give you some information about the likelihood of your success in having your physiotherapy qualifications recognized in Canada. Please be aware that every applicant is different, and this chart does not predict an applicant’s success or failure. If you do not see your education program in the list, it means we have not assessed this program in the previous 5 years.
