Maintain your Information

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.

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.
