Promise to Members

CPA’s goal is to provide exceptional service, valuable information and connections to the profession of physiotherapy across Canada and around the world.

The Canadian Physiotherapy Association’s (CPA) board of directors is comprised of eight members who represent physiotherapists and physiotherapist assistants. Two external directors are appointed by the board for their expertise in fields other than physiotherapy.

CPA members are entitled to be heard and to have access to sufficient information to make an informed decision about the value and success of their professional association.

To achieve this, CPA members have established a constitution in the form of bylaws, rules and regulations.

CPA members are responsible for the bylaws. Only members can ratify bylaw changes.

The CPA Board of Directors is responsible for rules and regulations. Members are entitled to know about modifications in a timely manner, and can question the Board on the appropriateness of any changes at the Annual General Meeting (AGM).

Questions for the board can be emailed to cpaboard@physiotherapy.ca
