Want to Work in Canada As a Physiotherapist? British Colombia Wants You


There are many ways to qualify for the Canadian immigration express entry one of which is the provincial nominee program. So if a province in Canada needs your services or profession they will nominate you for their PNP.

I think an interesting province to look at is British Colombia (BC).

British Colombia has different categories of skilled immigration ; Skilled worker, International graduate, International post-graduate and Health professional.
I'm focusing on the Health professional category because that is a very favourable option for a physiotherapist who desires to work in Canada.

Skilled Immigration - Health care professional

Health care professionals, especially physiotherapists are in high demand in British Colombia so the probability of you getting a nomination is very high. Rather than be on queue following the regular Canadian immigration process, the BC PNP - Health Care professional route will be a surer and quicker route.

Here are the necessary steps to take:

1. Take your IELTS exam

2. Have your credentials assessed by the alliance

To determine whether or not your physiotherapy education is similar (not substantially different) to what is available in Canada, the Alliance uses five criteria. 

I. Verification of Identity through authentic and valid documentation.
II. Completion of a university level, entry-to-practice degree in physiotherapy
III. Successful Completion of a minimum of 1025 hours of supervised clinical practice
IV. Fluency in either English or French
V. Knowledge of the practice of physiotherapy within the Canadian healthcare system

3. Register and upload your CV or Resume on Health Match BC



Health Match BC is a free physician, nurse and allied health recruitment service funded by the Government of British Columbia. They recruit on behalf of public health employers in the Province of British Colombia. Health Match BC provides information that will ensure you have the qualifications necessary to practice in British Columbia, and also information regarding prospective health employers in BC. Health Match BC only assists physiotherapists seeking opportunities in a BC health authority managed facilities. 

Internationally educated physiotherapists (IEPTs) wanting to work in BC as a physiotherapist (PT) must first apply to the Canadian Alliance of Physiotherapy Regulators (the Alliance) for a credentialing assessment. Your educational credentials and qualifications will then be assessed to confirm your eligibility to take the Physiotherapy Competency Exam (PCE), which is administered by the Alliance.


Working Abroad: Getting a Job in Canada

Provincial Registration 

All physiotherapists in British Columbia must be registered with the College of Physical Therapists of BC (CPTBC) before they can work in BC. The CPTBC is responsible for regulating the practice of physiotherapy in the public interest. www.cptbc.org 

The CPTBC requires that you have been successfully assessed by the Alliance before you can register. 

There are two main CPTBC categories of registration:
I. Full registration – an IEP who has successfully completed the credentialing process with the Alliance and passed the PCE
II. Interim registration – an IEP who has successfully completed the credentialing process with the Alliance and is registered for the first available PCE. You must also have a confirmed supervisory employment arrangement with a fully registered physiotherapist in BC. 

4. Get an offer of indeterminate or full employment from a public health authority (Health Match BC may be able to help you with that).

Other requirements:
  • minimum two years of directly related full-time (or full-time equivalent) work experience in the skilled occupation that has been offered to you
  • a written offer of employment on official company letterhead from your employer 
  • The letter must be signed and dated by a person authorized to hire employees and also signed and dated by you confirming that you accept the job offer.
  • In addition, the offer of employment must include your job title and duties, your rate of pay, your standard hours of work that the position is indeterminate and full-time (at least an average of 30 hours a week, year-round), any discretionary benefits in addition to those required by law (such as pension and medical plans, disability insurance, sick pay, accommodation and meal allowances, and extra paid vacations).
  • If the position is covered by a collective agreement, a reference to the agreement.

In addition to Health Match BC helping you get a job as a physiotherapist in Canada (British Colombia to be precise), they will guide you through the whole BC provincial nominee program (BC PNP) process.

I wish you all the best.

Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle, Say No to Physical Inactivity

A major cause of obesity in addition to eating fatty foods in large portions is physical inactivity.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO) physical inactivity is the fourth leading factor considered when it comes to global mortality. This, in other words, sounds like "keep moving or you die!". Yes it is a warning signal, an alarm that has gone off to show how "lazy" human beings have become...thanks to rapid urbanization and globalization.

Oh the convenience of technology! Yes the convenience that may not be that "convenient" when you have to visit the Doctor more often than you plan to.

This really calls for a change of lifestyle; become a more active you, get a grip on yourself and exercise more control over decisions that you take like "the elevator or stairs?"

Risks that come with increased physical inactivity:

Increased blood pressure
Increased blood sugar levels
Obesity
Cardiovascular disease
Stroke
Depression

Children are also not left out of this sedentary lifestyle embraced. Parents pride themselves in boasting about how good their kids are in operating and manipulating their communication gadgets even before the age they start talking.

I once heard of a situation where some visitors to a home were kept outside for over a quarter of an hour because the children who could have answered the door had their eyes glued to the television set.

It's even more worrisome to see that a lot of schools in are loosing their play fields while others just don't even think about it. This goes against research that shows that the number one stress reliever for children is physical activity.

Children are kept seated in classrooms for hours in the name of learning or education, which is just simply pathetic.

I once had to state my observation of this retrogressive trend during one of the parent teacher forums in my children's school some time back.

As a member of the exco of the parent teacher forum and a health educator I had to point out the damage lack of play could do to the children's learning process....it's also important to state that my children had already been manifesting signs of stress, complaining about headaches and frequent stooling!

According to the WHO guidelines for physical activity

1. Children and youth aged 5–17 should accumulate at least 60 minutes of moderate- to vigorous-intensity physical activity daily.
2. Amounts of physical activity greater than 60 minutes provide additional health benefits.
3. Most of the daily physical activity should be aerobic. Vigorous-intensity activities should be incorporated, including those that strengthen muscle and bone, at least 3 times per week.

Here are some benefits of exercise to encourage you to get up and move! Activities like walking, cycling and doing house chores are extremely beneficial so dont overlook these activities that are the easiest to begin or take seriously.

1. Exercise helps improve the strength, tone, mass and function of your muscles.
2. Exercise helps enhance your bone's mass and mineral density and general bone health.
3. Exercise helps control the accumulation of body fat.
4. Exercise improves your  cardiorespiratory fitness levels.
5. Exercise supports general brain health and mental wellbeing.

WHO recommendations for physical activity:

1. Adults aged 18–64 should do at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic physical activity throughout the week or do at least 75 minutes of vigorous-intensity aerobic physical activity throughout the week or an equivalent combination of moderate- and vigorous-intensity activity.
2. Aerobic activity should be performed in bouts of at least 10 minutes duration.
3. For additional health benefits, adults should increase their moderate-intensity aerobic physical activity to 300 minutes per week, or engage in 150 minutes of vigorous-intensity aerobic physical activity per week, or an equivalent combination of moderate- and vigorous-intensity activity.
4. Muscle-strengthening activities should be done involving major muscle groups on 2 or more days a week

Sitting for long periods even at work should be strongly discouraged, always take up the challenge of getting up every two hours to engage in physical activity that will make you more productive.

If you know you've been on the inactive side of the divide start doing basic chores, or even walking short distances that you know you would have driven. Then gradually build up or increase your activities with the guidance of your physician or physical therapist.

Remember, getting active shouldn't just be something you do it should be your lifestyle.

Master of Clinical Exercise Physiology, Deakin University

If you're seriously considering pursuing a postgraduate degree in exercise physiology, you might want to to look at the Master of Clinical Exercise physiology offered by Deakin University in Victoria.

Deakin University seems to be a reputable university and so is the first to have this course accredited by exercise physiologists in Australia.

Deakin’s Master of Clinical Exercise Physiology is the first clinical exercise course in Victoria to get accredited by Exercise and Sports Science Australia (ESSA).
The course provides graduates with a simple pathway to accreditation as Accredited Exercise Physiologists (AEP) and access to Provider Numbers with Medicare Australia, WorkSafe Victoria, DVA, TAC, and other compensable funds and schemes.

Course duration  2 years
Course fees  $30,080

Requirements
To be considered for selection into the course, applicants must be eligible for FULL membership of ESSA (a necessary pre-requisite for AEP accreditation) and have completed 140 hours of exercise service delivery for apparently healthy clientele.

The pathways for admittance into the Master of Clinical Exercise Physiology (H743) are:

1. Graduates of the Bachelor of Exercise and Sports Science (H343) at Deakin University after 2010: this course is accredited at the Exercise Science level by ESSA and is designed to provide direct entry into the Master of Clinical Exercise Physiology (H743);

2. Applicants who have previously completed an ESSA accredited undergraduate degree in Exercise Science at another university: go to ESSA to see the list of accredited universities;

3. Graduates of undergraduate degrees other than those above who can demonstrate that they have covered all or most of the elements required for full membership of ESSA; most undergraduate degrees in Exercise and Sports Science will cover this criterion; go to ESSA to download the Graduate entry application form and guide from ESSA

4. Current or past full member of ESSA.
For all four categories, applicants must have also completed 140 hours of exercise service delivery for apparently healthy clientele as this is required for AEP accreditation and is not provided within the Master of Clinical Exercise Physiology (H743).

International students who have an IELTS score of 7 across all bands may apply for entry into the course providing they have met the prerequisites for entry.

Top Physiotherapy Postgraduate Courses in Australia


In my opinion, one of the best countries to study especially at the university level is Australia. Doing your Masters or postgraduate program in an Australian university may be a bit pricey but is extremely favourable for mature students who have a family. You get to take your family along on a student visa!!! If you have a family and are interested in pursuing an undergraduate or postgraduate program you should consider Australia.

You might be able to get this visa if you are enrolled as a student in a registered course for the award of:
a bachelor or associate degree
a graduate certificate or graduate diploma
a masters degree by coursework
a higher education diploma or advanced diploma.
Streamlined visa processing for this visa is designed for international students applying to study in Australia at a participating university or non-university higher education provider. You may be eligible for streamlined visa processing if your main course of study is an Advanced Diploma (Higher Education), Bachelor degree or a Masters by coursework.
Before you apply for this visa, you must have applied for and been accepted to study full-time at an educational institution in Austra​​lia. You must provide evidence of your Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE) at the time that you lodge your application. 

With this visa:
  • you can study in Australia

  • you can work up to 40 hours per fortnight while your course is in session and unlimited hours during scheduled course breaks.
  • your family members can work up to 40 hours per fortnight provided you have commenced your course of study in Australia. If you are doing a postgraduate course, such as a Masters degree, your family members can work unlimited hours once you commence this course.
  • your partner can study in Australia for up to three months.
  • Note: If your partner wants to study for more than three months they must apply for their own student visa. The application can be made in Australia.
