Provincial Legislation

Framework for Health Professions Regulation

Provincial legislation includes the Health Professions Act (HPA) and the associated Health Professions Act General Regulation, and the Physical Therapists Regulation.

The HPA is umbrella legislation that provides a common framework for all health professions regulated under the statute. The HPA outlines how Colleges are designated, describes the duties of the College, and sets out responsibilities for statutory functions such as inquiry, registration or quality assurance.

The Physical Therapists Regulation outlines reserved titles and describes the overall scope of the profession.
