Does Ontario's Community Physiotherapy Clinic Program cover physiotherapy?

Community Physiotherapy Clinic Programs cover physiotherapy for seniors, youth and some other patients at government-funded physiotherapy clinics to help patients recover from illness, surgery or injury.

To be eligible, you must have a doctor’s referral and:

  • be receiving benefits under the Ontario Disability Support Program or Ontario Works (in this case an Ontario health card is not required and there are no age requirements) 

You must also:

  • have a valid Ontario health card
  • be 19 years old or younger
  • be 65 years old or older 
  • any age if admitted to a hospital for an overnight stay within the last 12 months
