Speaker:  Vince Avery BScPT, Physiotherapist/Co-owner of South Cowichan Physiotherapy and Sports Rehabilitation


  • graduated from the University of Alberta in Edmonton in 1995.
  • relocated to Vancouver Island and began private practice Physiotherapy in 1995; opened South Cowichan Physiotherapy in 1998 in Shawnigan Lake.
  • worked as a travelling therapist with Rugby Canada for 10 years, cumulating with the Rugby World Cup in France in 2007.


I aim to breakdown what the world of a physiotherapist is like, including education, clientele/caseload makeup, and salaries. Exposure to what the pathway to become a physiotherapist looks like today, and potential job prospects will also be discussed.   I would like to keep the formal structure to a minimum, to allow frequent questions and discussion around topics most interesting to the students.
