Governance


The SCPT governance model places Council’s primary focus on strategy and policy with a growing focus on generative governance. The Council’s primary role is leadership, setting the mission and overall strategy, fiduciary oversight and monitoring organizational performance.

The Executive Director & Registrar (EDR) is the senior executive and is responsible for implementing the policies of the Council and ensuring that the strategic objectives set by the Council are achieved. The EDR is responsible for the management of day-to-day operations of SCPT.

All SCPT policies have been adopted by the Council, in order to guide both Council and EDR behavior and decision making. All Council and EDR decisions must first take into consideration the requirements of the Physical Therapists Act 1998 and the SCPT Bylaws.

 
OUR VISION is to be a proactive leader in the field of healthcare regulation.

OUR MISSION is to serve the public by ensuring safe competent care from qualified physical therapists.
