Physiotherapy Foundation of Canada

Physiotherapy can help Canadians in so many ways - and we're always looking to improve how. The Physiotherapy Foundation of Canada (PFC) is Canada’s only registered charity dedicated to the funding of physiotherapy research.

Our annual fundraising campaign is back and bigger than ever! Check out our 2017 “Powered by Physio” design, available on your choice of a cotton Tee or a long-sleeved dry-fit shirt. Get yours today to promote your profession in style for May's National Physiotherapy Month (NPM):

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Site visit: how the printing team at Daquin lines up the different colours to be printed on your "powered by physio" t-shirt.

 

Sport this shirt wherever you go in May and let everyone know how proud you are to be a physiotherapist or physiotherapist assistant, and how "physio can help" by empowering your patients and clients to move, move more, and move better. All proceeds from sales go directly to the PFC and help to support physiotherapy and rehabilitation research across Canada, just like the more than $1.25 million PFC has already handed out in grants and scholarships to the country’s leading researchers.
 
PFC-funded research creates knowledge that improves the practice of physiotherapy, helping physiotherapists better assess, treat, and educate their patients, which ultimately allows Canadians to experience a better quality of life.
