Abstract
This article introduces a Canadian alternative to Professional Education in
Rehabilitation that reflects Canadian history, the contingencies of Canadian social policy and
professional accreditation. As an introduction to Canadian Experience, it contributes to a
discussion about the potential for educational programs at the diploma, bachelors, masters and
specialist levels. It highlights the particular experience at the University of Calgary while
introducing other educational initiatives. Curriculum, the educational milieu, recruitment and
course delivery are discussed within the various rungs of the career ladder. It is suggested that
educational continua gain from the synergy of practice, education and research.
