Our mission is to ensure that the public receives safe, competent physiotherapy care from qualified physiotherapists.
Every physiotherapist who practises physiotherapy in Manitoba must be a registered member of the College of Physiotherapists of Manitoba (CPM).
CPM is a self-supported professional body that regulates the practice of physiotherapy in Manitoba. CPM receives its regulatory authority from The Physiotherapists Act of Manitoba (2001). CPM is responsible for:
- Setting standards of practice
- Registering only qualified physiotherapists who wishes to practise in Manitoba
- Ensuring that complaints of malpractice, misconduct or incompetence involving physiotherapists are thoroughly investigated and that appropriate action is taken
- Maintaining a Continuing Competence program that requires members to demonstrate that they have engaged in activities to maintain and enhance their ability to practice
CPM does not promote the interests and/or advancement of physiotherapists. However, registration with CPM ensures that all members have met certain requirements and are qualified to practise as physiotherapists.
