Under the Health Professions Act, you are required, within 30 days, to report changes to your name, contact information, academic record, employment, restricted activities performed, 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)

  • Current Practice Name.  This is the name that appears on your practice permit and Public Register and therefore the name you use when practicing physiotherapy.
  • Other Names. 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.
