Bridging programs are designed to provide educational opportunities for internationally educated physiotherapists to bridge their knowledge, skills and experience to meet the entry-to-practice requirements set by provincial regulatory colleges, prepare for the national Physiotherapy Competency Exams (PCE) and support integration into the Canadian workplace.
There are currently a number of Bridging Programs for internationally-educated physiotherapists operating in Canada. Many of these programs are also open to Canadian-educated candidates looking to brush up on particular exam-writing and clinical skills. For more information on curriculum, eligibility, enrollment and fees, please refer to their websites:
