The College of Physiotherapists of Manitoba (CPM) recognizes that, occasionally due to unavoidable circumstances, you may need to ask us to defer. This may be for numerous reasons (as a result of illness, family circumstances, or maternity leave).
To request the deferral, write to us and ask for a deferral explaining your reasons for why you cannot participate. We will review your request to see whether it is fair to you, and to others chosen that year, to approve the deferral. If you defer, you will automatically be chosen to participate when your registration is next renewed or based on the timeline provided in the deferral approval letter.
Our deferral process will make sure, as far as possible, that although we are fair to those who cannot participate, we are still being fair to those who do participate. If you need to apply for a deferral more than once, your request will be reviewed by your peers on the Continuing Competence Committee who will deem if the deferral should be granted based on the information and rationale provided.
