College of Physical Therapists of BC
The College of Physical Therapists of British Columbia (CPTBC) is a not-for-profit organization responsible for regulating the practice of physical therapists in the public interest. CPTBC is a regulatory organization that operates within the legislative framework provided by the Health Professions Act. The CPTBC sets standards for entry into the profession, registers physical therapists, sets and enforces a set of rules that registrants must follow and develops programs to promote the highest standards of physical therapy practice.
The CPTBC also investigates complaints and disciplines physical therapists who have been found guilty of professional misconduct or incompetence. If a complainant is not satisfied with the resolution, they can file an appeal with the Hospital Professions Review Board. Complaint procedures are outlined on the CPTBC website.
