In Saskatchewan there are three primary physical therapy organizations:
The School of Physical Therapy, College of Medicine, University of Saskatchewan - the university educational program that trains physical therapists;
The Saskatchewan College of Physical Therapists - the regulatory body which licenses graduate physical therapists and ensures they meet required standards of practice; and
The Saskatchewan Physiotherapy Association - the professional association which works on behalf of member therapists to promote the profession.
These three organizations have established a "Tri-Organizational Executive Committee" which meets on at least an annual basis to share information, discuss upcoming trends within the profession and collaborate on projects or events when possible.
For more information on the roles of each of these organizations and for their contact information, visit the individual pages on this website and link to the organizations' own websites.
There is currently no university educational program for occupational therapists in Saskatchewan, although significant work is being done to rectify that situation.
For occupational therapists, the regulatory body and professional association are one organization:
the Saskatchewan Society of Occupational Therapists (SSOT).
For information on SSOT visit their website at www.ssot.sk.ca or contact their office at
