NSPA Committees

The NSPA has two active standing committees that support the work of the Board on a project basis: the Member Services Committee and the Public Relations Committee. Committees generally meet 4-8 times per year and offer a great way for members to get involved with the work of the Association without a significant time commitment. If you are interested in becoming a committee volunteer, please contact info@physiotherapyns.ca.


Mandate: The Member Services Committee aims to achieve exactly what it describes, providing services to NSPA members. This committee is comprised of the previous Professional Development (PD) Committee, and the Awards Committee, and encompasses many other initiatives. Four main pillars define Member Services: 

1) Professional Development 
2) Awards & recognition 
3) Social planning 
4) Member engagement 

Initiatives and activities fall within one of the above pillars, and sub-groups will be working hard to bring exceptional member services to members.

Public Relations Committee

Mandate: The Public Relations Committee is responsible for identifying, developing, co-ordinating, and promoting opportunities that foster positive public awareness and understanding of the physiotherapy profession. Committee activities include creating targeted advertising, website development, and social media messaging.

Physiotherapists can be found all across Nova Scotia.
