Interim Competency Process

On September 14, 2021, the Canadian Alliance of Physiotherapy Regulators (CAPR) announced that the attempt to run the virtual clinical component of the Physiotherapy Competency Exam (PCE), was unsuccessful.  Subsequently, CAPR decided to cancel the virtual examination and return focus to administering the face-to-face clinical component.  The timeline to deliver the clinical component is still to be determined.  The postponements and eventual cancellation of the clinical component of the National Physiotherapy Competency Exam have caused significant ambiguity for Nova Scotia Resident Physiotherapists on their next steps to fully entering the profession.  The NSCP has decided to create a process to full licensure for affected residents that wish to apply.
