PFA was founded in 1958 and has hundreds of Certified Pedorthists practicing in Canada, United States and around the world.
The Canadian Chapter of PFA was founded in 2013. This self-regulated pedorthic association confirms the educational background of its members and ensures each member’s designation meets Canadian standards. Members are held accountable to: standards of practice, code of ethics, professional discipline committee and continuing educational requirements.
The field of pedorthics is not government regulated in Canada. The general public, insurance companies and medical professionals rely on associations like this to ensure professionals serving the industry meet the Canadian standards for training and ethical conduct. It is associations like this which also monitor members and enforce adherence to these Canadian standards.
PFA Canada ensures our certified pedorthists meet Canadian Standards. Members who meet and adhere to these standards become Canadian Certified Pedorthists and are granted a Canadian Pedorthic Licence (CPL).
