This exam, under the auspices of the Canadian Alliance of Physical Therapy Regulatory Boards is taken in June or November after graduation from the program and costs approximately $2,800. The physical therapy program is designed to enable students to pass the exam, however, completion of degree requirements does not guarantee successful completion of the PCE.
