Advisory Committee on Discrimination, Oppression, and Inequity

  •   May 6, 2021

Physiotherapy Alberta is currently seeking to recruit individuals to contribute to an Advisory Committee on Discrimination, Oppression, and Inequity.

Physiotherapy Alberta has committed to reviewing our current policies, procedures, and standards from an anti-discrimination and anti-oppression perspective. The Advisory Committee is being formed to draw upon the lived experiences and perspectives of members of historically marginalized communities, to identify priorities and inform Physiotherapy Alberta’s future actions. The Advisory Committee will provide a non-regulatory perspective on current College policies, procedures, and standards.

Through this work, we seek to render regulatory processes and practices non-discriminatory and equitable, to reflect diverse perspectives and culture in the resources we generate, and to advance the skills and attitudes of registrants as relate to cultural humility and equity.

The ideal committee membership will include members of the public and physiotherapists who self-identify as members of historically marginalized communities.

  • We have heard from several physiotherapists interested in the work of the committee and thank them for their interest.
  • We continue to seek members of the public to contribute to their voices and lived experience to this work.

If you know someone who you think would be interested in this work, please share this expression of interest with them and encourage them to become involved.

If you are interested in this opportunity, please complete an expression of interest.

Committee membership will be confirmed in the near future.
