The Canadian Alliance of Physiotherapy Regulators (CAPR) is the pan-Canadian federation of provincial and territorial physiotherapy regulators whose mission it is to support the physiotherapy community in protecting the public. CAPR assesses the education and qualifications of all internationally-educated physiotherapists; it administers the national Physiotherapy Competency Exam for all candidates, whether Canadian-educated or internationally-educated; and it supports Canadian physiotherapy regulators through knowledge brokering and policy services.

Other key responsibilities include identifying and providing guidance in improvements to the design and delivery of the PCE. This includes providing oversight to outsourced agencies that provide external psychometric contracted services regarding statistical analysis.
