ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The Ontario Internationally Educated Physical Therapy Bridging (OIEPB) Program provides courses for internationally educated physiotherapists to help transition their career to Canada. Our courses are designed to give you the advantage you need to succeed.
This program is supported by the Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration and Honourable Minister Laura Albanese conveyed her support of the program in a recent letter to our Alumni as they launched the OIEPB Alumni Association. Here is an excerpt:
“Our Ministry is proud of our partnership with you to deliver a bridge training program that prepares physiotherapists educated outside of Canada to be career-ready and contribute to a strong Ontario.
I would like to thank all of the OIEPB Alumni for your contributions not only to the Ontario labour market, but also to your communities. Know that your hard work and dedication to helping others has had a positive impact in the lives of many in our province.”
