Athletic Therapy is a degree program offered at several degree granting institutions in Canada. Athletic Therapists are trained in clinical assessment and rehabilitation of orthopaedic injuries, exercise physiology, electrical modalities and on field emergency assessment. After graduation and upon successful completion of a national written and oral-practical exam, the candidate becomes certified and qualified to practice. Each member must maintain this certification by accumulating maintenance points through professional development and
ongoing learning.

The Canadian Athletic Therapy Association is the governing body for Athletic Therapists. The profession of Athletic Therapy is approximately 40 years old. It is not currently a regulated health profession in Canada, as there are not enough Athletic Therapists in Canada for the government to deem regulation necessary.
