The College of Pedorthics of Canada is a national self regulatory body whose primary purpose is to protect the Canadian public who receive foot-related services from Canadian Certified Pedorthists.
We ensure that certified members are accountable to the highest standards of practice through our certification of members and facilities, the monitoring of continued competency and the enforcement of ethical conduct.
COVID-19 Recommendation for The College of Pedorthic of Canada Members
The College has been actively monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic. Throughout this challenging time, we will continue to provide you with trusted information from reputable sources.
For current and reliable information and advice please refer to the Public Health Agency of Canada, World Health Organization, and your province’s health agency.
At this time, we are recommending that members of The College of Pedorthics of Canada, including Certified Pedorthist (Canada) (C. Ped (C)), Certified Pedorthist Master Craftsman (C. Ped MC), Certified Orthopaedic Footwear Specialist (COFS), and Certified Pedorthic Technician (C. Ped Tech (C)) suspend all non-essential pedorthic services until further notice.
We believe that this recommendation is in the best interest of all Canadians and aligns with recommendations from all levels of government to practice social distancing.
This is a quickly evolving situation and we want to make sure we are providing you with the right information. As circumstances change and new guidance is received from government, we will keep you updated.
If you have any questions, do not hesitate to reach to the CPC. Our contact information is listed at the top left of this page.
Thank you for your continued support in building and protecting the profession of pedorthics in Canada.
