MPT student news and events

The Rehab Job Fair is on the horizon! Our annual job fair is the ideal opportunity for private clinics and public health authorities to showcase their business and culture to MPT and MOT students. It is a joint PT/OT event where potential employers can network with the students. This year the event is being sponsored in-part by CPTBC and PABC. We thank them for their continued support!

This year the event will be June 6, 2018 4-8pm in the AMS Nest Great Hall.

Know of a clinic/health authority that is keen to hire new grads? Fantastic!
Please contact for more information.

Another event connecting students with the physiotherapy community will be held the preceding evening at the Coppertank Grill from 5:30-7:30. It will be a fun and fast-paced mixer where you will have the opportunity to impart your pearls of wisdom to us, the next generation, whilst enjoying a beverage in a casual atmosphere. More information can be found at:

We look forward to connecting with our physio community at these events!

The PT student society (PTSS) invites you to celebrate Physiotherapy Month and raise money for the Physiotherapy Foundation of Canada by participating in the Physio Fun Run 2018 on Saturday, May 26!
