Description (Service) To locate publicly-funded physiotherapy clinics click here and select the local LHIN area to see a list of their local clinics. 
Physiotherapy is publicly-funded for adults with a valid OHIP card who are in certain situations. Individuals need a referral from their doctor to access publicly-funded physiotherapy. Individuals who may be eligible include: 
  • long-term care residents 18 years or older 
  • patients discharged from an overnight inpatient hospital stay 
  • recipients of Ontario Works (OW) or Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) 
  • adults 65 years or older
Older adults 65 years or older who require in-home physiotherapy (at their own home or in a retirement home) need a referral from their local Home and Community Care office. Dial 310-2222 (no area code) or search here to find the local LHIN
For individuals not eligible for publicly-funded physiotherapy, the College of Physiotherapists of Ontario lists private clinics.
