A word from the president



Welcome to the website of Ordre professionnel de la physiothérapie du Québec.


Physiotherapy is a discipline that has much to offer to the Quebec healthcare system thanks to the dedication and professionalism of the practitioners in the field.



M. Pelletier has been president of OPPQ
since May 30, 2014.

Our role as a professional order is to guide our members and ensure they provide you with top quality care and services. Our main mission is to protect the public. You can therefore call on the Order if you feel that the conduct of a physiotherapist or physical rehabilitation therapist you have consulted is inappropriate or you question the quality of the services you are being provided with.

We are also responsible for taking part in the development of the professions. For example, in working toward allocating new responsibilities that may be assigned to physiotherapy professionals, OPPQ promotes the competencies of its members while at the same time taking part in the discussion about healthcare optimization in Quebec.

As president, I pledge to make a meaningful contribution to our Order’s mission, which is to ensure the quality and safety of care provided to the Quebec public. I firmly believe that the ongoing efforts of our members to keep pace with scientific developments and professional practices will meet the expectations and needs of those who seek their care.

If you would like to discover what physiotherapy can do for you or wish to learn more about our professionals, I invite you to visit the rest of our website.

Physiotherapist, M.Sc.
