The NSCP has two employees, a Registrar and an Executive Director  who operate out of a "Virtual" office that was opened in the summer of 2009.  What this means is that either employee can access NSCP data bases, and communication links from virtually any location in Nova Scotia. In turn NSCP Members or the general public, can access by phone or internet either Registrar or Executive Director regardless of the employee's location.They can also be reached by mail, but at a much slower pace.

Given there are two employees which one should I contact?

  • Registering as a NEW physiotherapist or renewing your registration
  • The Physiotherapy Act and associated Regulations
  • Practice related issues

Contact the Executive Director if your concern deals with:
