Under the Health Professions Act, you are required, within 30 days, to report changes to your name, contact information, employment and registration with another college. You are also required to report any criminal charges, convictions and unprofessional conduct to the Registrar as soon as reasonably possible. 

Use My Profile in the Member Portal to report changes as they occur.

Your name(s)

You must practice in the name which appears on your practice permit. For example, if you use an abbreviated first name in practice you must tell Physiotherapy Alberta so we can issue your practice permit in that name.

Your registration record must contain all your names even if it is not the name in which you practice. This includes full legal name, previous name, maiden name, alias or adopted/married name. For example, married physiotherapists who adopt their spouse's last name but continue to use their maiden name in practice must still report the adopted name.

Contact information

Your registration record must contain your current home mailing address, an email address and home telephone number.

Practice location

Your registration record must include all the locations where you practiced during the current registration year (in Alberta and elsewhere). The reporting requirement is "where services are delivered". E.g., if you work at Physiotherapy Clinic X on a contract or consulting basis report the clinic not your consulting company. 

Registration with another college

You must report any jurisdiction where you are registered as a physiotherapist or other regulated professional. 

Criminal and Conduct Information

You must self-report to the Registrar the following information as soon as reasonably possible:

  • A decision of unprofessional conduct by another regulated body in any jurisdiction
  • Any findings of professional negligence
  • Any charge or convictions of an offense under the Criminal Code (Canada).
