      • All applications must be received in the CAPR office by the application deadline indicated in the table above.
      • Applications received after the application deadline WILL NOT be accepted.
      • You are responsible for making sure that the application form is completed correctly.
        • Errors in the completion of the official application may result in a returned application.
      • CAPR does not accept photocopied, faxed or emailed applications.
      • You may not register for more than one administration of each component at a time.
      • You must wait for your results to be released prior to re-applying for the same component.
      • You are encouraged to mail your application(s) via a trackable mailing service, for example, Registered Mail or Courier. This will allow you to track your personal package.

Fee Payment Information

Payment must be in Canadian funds for the full amount and must be submitted with the application.  Payment can be by certified cheque, money order or credit card. DEBIT CREDIT CARDS, CASH, AND PERSONAL CHEQUES ARE NOT ACCEPTED.

All payments must be made payable to “Canadian Alliance of Physiotherapy Regulators.”

Payment by Credit Card

You can pay your fees by credit card. CAPR accepts the following major credit cards only – VISA and MasterCard. Please visit www.alliancept.org for information on paying by credit card. Complete the credit card section of the application form to authorize credit card payment.

Use of Bank Drafts

While we do accept bank drafts as a method of payment, it is important to remember that we will only accept bank drafts that are negotiable without charge in Canada. If your bank draft cannot be drawn on a Canadian bank, we will not be able to accept your application. To avoid delays, please ensure your payment meets CAPR’s requirements, and that any bank drafts submitted can be drawn from a Canadian bank.

The bank must issue drafts with Magnetic Ink Character Recognition Code.

Payment from Outside Canada

If you choose to pay by credit card (debit credit cards are not accepted) and are applying from outside of Canada, CAPR strongly recommends that you contact your credit card company to notify them of the pending charge. Companies are becoming more rigorous about their anti-fraud measures and some will reject a transaction from a foreign company if they are not aware of it ahead of time. As many credit card companies do not communicate the reason for rejecting transactions to us, this will result in you being charged an additional $75.00 fee for rejected payments.

Please note that CAPR is not able to guarantee a specific payment processing date or a payment processing date range. If your credit card company requires that information to authorize the transaction, we recommend that you choose one of the other acceptable methods of payment for your application.

International candidates who send their documents with a bank draft, the draft needs to be drawn on a Canadian Bank and must be security encrypted; otherwise the draft will be sent for manual collections which will take around 25 business days or more and will incur bank charges.

Invalid or Rejected Credit Cards

If your credit card is invalid or rejected, we will consider your registration incomplete. We will send you an email to explain your payment options. As many credit card companies do not communicate the reason for rejecting transactions to us, this will result in you being charged an additional $75.00 fee for rejected payments.

You will not be eligible to register for the exam unless we receive payment by the date outlined on the notice we send to you.

Official Receipts

Official receipts for fees will be mailed to candidates with their exam results.
