Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion

Why is Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Important? 

An equitable, diverse, and inclusive environment allows all physiotherapists, patients, and communities to reach their full potential.

PABC will continue to provide access to resources and information to support equity, diversity and inclusion within the physiotherapy community as it becomes available. These pages will be updated continuously.
