Orthopaedic Division Lynn Chapman Mentorship Award 
This Award was initiated in 2016 to honour the late Lynn Chapman, an outstanding physiotherapist who passed away in 2015.  It was realized by her peers, and the Orthopaedic Division of Canadian Physiotherapy Association (CPA), that she was an outstanding leader, who did much for the profession locally and nationally.

The purpose of the Orthopaedic Division Lynn Chapman Mentorship Award is to recognize physiotherapists who, through their inspiration and support, are actively engaged in the mentorship of other physiotherapists and have made outstanding and special contributions to orthopaedic manual physiotherapy.

If you know and would like to nominate a Physiotherapist for this Award, please contact for nomination details and criteria and download the nomination form.
