Health Human Resources Unit.RA41O.9.C2P6 610.69 C94-301-383-6HEALTHHUMAN RESOURCES UNITThe Health Human Resources Unit (HHRU) of the Centre for HealthServicesand PolicyResearch was established as a demonstration projectby the British ColumbiaMinistryofHealth in 1973. Since that time, the Unit has been carriedon an ongoing basis within theMinistry's annual operatingbudget. The Unit undertakes a series of research studies that arerelevant to health humanresources management and to public policy decisions.The HHRU'sresearch agendais determined throughextensive discussion of key current issuesand available resources withofficialsof the Ministry of Health. Various health care providergroupsparticipateindirectly, throughongoing formal and informalcommunication withMinistryof Health officials and with HHRUresearchers.Three types of research activity are variously includedon the Unit's researchagenda and drawon different skills and researchexpertiseof its faculty and staff. In conjunction with theprofessional licensing bodiesor associations, the HHRUdevelops and maintains a co-operativehealth human resources database. The Unit uses these data to produce regular status reportsthat provide a basis for future in-depthstudies and for health human resourcesplanning. TheUnit conducts in-depth studies that have a particularpolicy relevanceor assess the impact ofspecific policy measures, based on secondary analyses of data from the co-operative databaseor primary data collected throughlarge scale surveys. The HHRU also conducts specificprojectspertaining to the management of health human resourcesat local, regional andprovincial levels.Copies of studies and reportsproducedby the HHRU are available at no charge.(See final pages of this documentfor a listingof HHRUstudies and reports.)Health Human Resources UnitCentre for Health Services andPolicy Research#429-2194 Health Sciences MallVancouver, BCV6T 1Z3ph: (604) 822-4810fax: (604) 822-5690iiACKNOWLEDGEMENTSSpecial appreciation is extended to the regulatory bodies and membership groups, all ofwhom took the time to answer our written and verbal requests for information.PLACE OF GRADUATION 95 is based on data developed for ROLLCALL 95; two yearsof file maintenance and updating is topped off with table generation, consistency checks,dcflnition and other text verification, proof-reading and analysis.

In all eases, the total number oflicensed or registered professionals, as of the date of record, is given. Occupational Therapists and Dietitians andNutritionists are the only gronps presented in this volume for which registration is not mandatory, thoughregulation exists in the fonn of exclusive use of statutory titles.Data presented in this report should not be interpreted as indicative of immigration and/or migration patterns.PLACE OF GRADUATION provides information only abont where education was obtained, not conntry orprovince of origin. What PLACE OF GRADUATION does suggest is British Columbia's relative dependence,within these health professions, on people trained outside this province.The first tables of each chapter show province/country of graduation by geographic location within tileprovince. Location has been grouped into the broad categories ''Vanconver and District", "Capital" and "OtherB.C." to facilitate clear data presentation. Following is a list of health regions as they fall into the three categoriesused in this edition of PLACE OF GlI.ADUA110N.viiVancouver and District:South Fraser ValleySimon FraserVancouverBurnabyNorth ShoreRichmondCapital:Capital Regional DistrictOther B.C.:East KootenayWest Kootenay - BoundaryNorth OkanaganSouth Okanagan - SimilkameenUpper Fraser ValleyCoast GaribaldiCentral Vancouver IslandNorth Island / Mid CoastThompson ValleyCaribooNorth WestNorthern InteriorPeace River - LiardAppendix A contains a map of B.C. showing the I-lealtil Region boundaries. As well, a conversion table showingtile relationship between Health Regions and Loeal Health Areas is included. A table of population estimates forhealth regions can be found in Appendix B.PLACE OF GlI.ADUAIION includes tables showing the distribntion of personnel by place of graduation forindividual health regions, and also included arc tables showing mean years since graduation, and for some gronps,mean years since registration in B.C. and mean age of personnel by place of graduation and health region. Forthese tables, place of graduation has been aggregated into the categories B.C., Alberta, Saskatchewan/Manitoba,Ontario, Other Canada and Other Country. It should be noted that in these tables Other Canada refers to thenorthern territories and the provinces cast of Ontario, whereas in Figures I and 2 in each chapter Other Canadarefers to the northern territories and all provinces other than B.C.Some tables seen in previous editions of PLACE OF GlI.ADUA110N IUlYe been excluded, when the additionalinformation contained therein was relatively small. In all cases, however, the unpublished tables were produced,are discussed briefly, and are available upon request. In all tables, location in the province is based on employmentaddress wherever employment. address was available. Employment address was not available form some groups orfor all members of other groups; particular percentages of home vs. employment address are outlined in the"Definition:" section of each chapter.viiiPROVINCIAL SUMMARYFigures laud 2 provide a graphic overview of place of graduation for the thirteen health professions includedin PLACE OF GRADUATION. Figure I suggests that close to 50% of health professionals in B.C. were educatedin this province with the highest proportions of B.C. graduates to be found in Other B.C. It also suggests that non­Canadian graduates are more likely to locate in Vancouver and District than in other areas of the province. Figure2 compares new registrants (registrants from approximately the last two years) to all registrants, in terms of broadcategory of place of graduation. This figure shows that the new registrants and all registrants have similarproportions of graduates from B.C., Other Canada and Other Country.Tables 1 and 2 offer a more detailed look at the data presented in Figures 1 and 2. Table I indicates that of allhealth personnel included in PLACE OF GRADUATION, 83.39% were educated in Canada and 15.86% outsideCanada, compared to 86.53% and 12.85%, respectively, of the new registrants (Table 2). There is also a slightlylower proportion of B.C. graduates among all registrants compared to the new registrants (51.57% vs. 53.82%,respectively). These differences in distribution are similar, when location in the province is considered. InVancouver and District there is a slightly higher proportion of non-Canadian graduates among all registrantscompared to the new registrants (20.07% vs. 17.28%). TIle greatest contributor to this is the percentage ofEuropean graduates, and those from the U.K. specifically. Graduates from the U.K. are 7.23% of all registrants inVancouver and District, but only 3.02% of new registrants. Conversely, graduates from Asia comprise 3.78% ofall gradnates and 4.25% of new registrants. The proportion of Canadian graduates in Vancouver and District isslightly lower in Table I than in Table 2 (79.15% vs. 82.04%), mainly due to the graduates from B.C. (50.38% ofall registrants and 55.98% of new registrants in Vancouver and District). Canadian graduates in the Capitalregion also have a higher representation among the new registrants (90.32%) compared to all registrants (87.34%).Graduates in Capital from Nova Scotia (3.63% in Table 2 vs. 1.89% in Table 1), Ontario (16.53% vs, 12.98%) andAlberta (14.52% vs. 10.47%) show the greatest differences between new and all registrants. B.C. graduates,however, have a lower representation among the new registrants compared to all registrants (46.77% vs. 49.63%,respectively). Among the non-Canadian graduates in Capital (11.97% in Table I and 8.67% in Table 2), it is, asin Vancouver and District, the U.K. graduates who make up the difference (6.53% in Table 1 and 2.62% in Table2). In Other B.C., the proportions of Canadian and non-Canadian graduates show a similar pattern to that seen inthe other two regions when comparing all registrants with the new registrants (88.32% and 10.96% vs. 91.69%and 7.86%, respectively). B.C. graduates again have a slightly lower representation among the new registrantscompared to all registrants (52.52% vs. 53.90%, respectively), while the converse is true for graduates fromNewfoundland, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Saskatchewan and Alberta. U.K. graduates in Other B.C. are 4.69% of allregistrants and 1.68% of new registrants.Table 3 presents the information in Table 1 by health region and by place of graduation, with foreigngradnates aggregated into one category. As mentioned previously, the "Other Canada" category in this table, andall similarly aggregated tables in the chapters, refers to all provinces and territories other than British Columbia,Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario. The column heading "N" is the number of health professionals thatcomprise each gronp. B.C. graduates represent just over half of all registrants to these health professions. Withinthe individual health regions, however, there is a fairly large variation in percentage of B.C. graduates, rangingfrom about 40% in Peace River-Liard (39.57%) and East Kootenay (42.98%) to over 60% in Northern Interior(60.11%), West Kootenay-Boundary (60.47%) and Cariboo (61.47%). East Kootenay and Peace River-Liard alsoshow the highest representation of Alberta graduates (20.29% and 21.00%, respectively), which may be becausethese two health regions share long borders with Alberta. Non-Canadian graduates constitute more than 10% ofhealth professionals in all health regions, except for three bordering health regions in the south-central area of theprovince; North Okanagan (9.45%), South Okanagan-Similkamcen (8.75%) and Thompson Valley (8.07%). Incontrast, 22.42% of health personnel located in Vancouver are graduates of other countries.Table 4 uses the same format as Table 3, but presents only the new registrant population. When lookingacross the provincial totals, differences between Table 3 and Table 4 are relatively small. Within tne individualhealth regions, however, percentage distributions can be quite different. As was the case in Table 3, the proportionof B.C. graduates is lowest in the Peace River-Liard health region (30.56%), and highest in the Cariboo healthregion (67.35%) for the new registrants. Peace River-Liard also shows the highest representation of Albertagraduates among the new registrants (30.56%), equal to the proportion ofB.C. graduates in that region. Thepercentage of Other Country graduates in the health regious has a wider variation by health region among the newregistrants than that seen in the total group, as discussed above. Non-Canadian graduates make up only 4.82% ofthe new registrants in Coast Garibaldi (4 out of 83), but 23.08% of new registrants in Richmond (51 of 221).Table 5 provides an historical perspective, showing the percentage ofB.C. graduates from 1985 to 1995 ineach health personnel group. Massage therapists show the largest jump in proportion of B.C. graduates, from40.76% in 1989, the first year these data were available, to 60.83% in 1995. Also showing a general upward trendin percentage of B.C. graduates from 1985 to 1995are dentists (29.26% to 37.39%), physicians (21.51% to25.90%), registered nurses (47.81% to 51.06%), occupational therapists (29.11% in 1987 to 37.39%) and physicaltherapists (23.45% to 27.59%). Registered psychiatric nurses show the strongest downward pattern, from 68.31%B.C. graduates in 1987 to 61.32% in 1995. Certified dental assistants, dental hygienists and licensed practicalnurses show an up and down pattern, with a slight overall decrease when looking at 1985compared to 1995for allthree gronps (91.99% vs. 91.41%,44.68% vs. 44.38%, and 65.68% vs. 65.56% respectively). Figure 3 is acorollary to Table 5, presenting the percentage distributionby place of graduation for each of the groups in 1995.The figure has been arranged from lowest (physicians) to highest (certified dental assistants) proportion of B.C.graduates.Table 6 is a table created from information that can be found in the HERD's PRODUCTION and ROLLCALLseries. The production index (PI) is the ratio of the number of personnel who are eligible for employment in eachhealth human resources group to the number who graduated from B.C. institutions in the corresponding disciplinein each of the academic years stated (1991/92, 1993/94and 1995/96). The number of graduates in each disciplinefor each academic year (the denominator) is provided by the various degree-granting institutions through aquestionnaire designed and distributed by the HERD. The numerator for each group and year is determined asfollows: for groups where there are multiple registration or membershipcategories, only those categories wherethere is a potential for employment in the field are included. For example, registered nurses may be registeredwith the Registered Nurses Association of British Columbia (RNABC) as either "practising"or "non-practising".The PI would use only those in the "practising"category in the numerator, as those in the "non-practising"category by definition can not be employed in nursing. For groups where there is only one membership orregistration category, such as certified dental assistants, the total number is used. The same rules are appliedconsistently to all years of data. 111is table also points out an important distinction between the number of healthprofessionals who graduate from B.C. institutions in a given year and the number of B.C. graduates who registerwith the various bodies. These numbers are not the same, as not all those who graduate in B.C. register with B.C.associations (some leave to work in other provincesor countries), and not all new registrants in a given yeargraduated that same year.An increasing PI, as seen with certified dental assistants, dental hygienists, dentists, registered nurses,registered psychiatric nurses, occupational therapistsand physical therapists, indicates a decrease in the number ofgraduates relative to those already in the field. This may be caused by the decreasing number of graduates, or ahigh growth in numbers of personnel; of the groups noted it is the latter phenomenon that is causing the change inthe PI, WiU, the exception of registered nurses and registeredpsychiatric nurses, who have shown decreases in thenumbers graduated in B.C. from 1991/92 to 1995/96(720 to 587 and 86 to 66, respectively). Massage therapistsshow a large decrease in the PI from 1993/94(the first year data are available on B.C. graduates) to 1995/96 (12.1to 5.1). The decrease is due largely to the increase in the number of graduates from B.C. programs. 111e othergroups show erratic patterns, with pharmacists and physicians showing higher PIs in 1995/96 Ulan in 1991/92, andlicensed practical nurses, dietitians and psychologists lower. The relatively large PI for psychologists seen in1993/94 is due to a combination of both the low number of graduates from the various B.C. programs and anincrease in the number of personnel in that year.ixx Figure 1Place of Graduation by HHRD Health Regionfor Selected Health Personnel l in British Columbia1995...•--_•._-..•.--.._-- ..••....-_..•_ ...•.-.6050•e"0'"·C~•'"~ 20u"•c,10HHRU Health Region[]vancouver & Di',,"ic'·1IJCapital1m Other B.C..... -British Columbia Other CanadaPlace of GraduationOther CountryI Excludes health personnel whose place ofgraduation is unknown.'---- ----------- ._-----_..__ . __.._--Figure 2Type of Registrants by Place of Graduationfor Selected Health Personnel1 in British Columbia1995---.•...•__...•__._..•.•._-Place ofOraduatton[0 British COltllllbi;'][J Other Canada~!5~!~:::_~~.~::!.~~:LJNew Registrants1 Excludes health personnel whose place ofgraduation is unknown.Prepared by:Health Human Resources UnitThe University orBritish ColumbiaAll RegistrantsTable 1Selected Health Personnel1 in British Columbiaby Place of Graduation by HHRU Health RegionDecem her 1995Vancouverand District Capital Other D.C.

Those included in this report had British Columbiaaddresses at the date of record. Registration with the CDSBC does not necessarilyimply employment as a dental assistant. Data presented in the tables are based onhome address for the majority of certified dental assistants. Precise percentages ofhome vs. employment or other address are not known.November 1995.The College of Dental Surgeons of British Columbia (CDSBC).Figure 1 and Table I show the location of certified dentai assistants (CDAs) by place of graduation.Table 2 presents this same information for new registrants (registrants to the CDSBC between October1993 and November 1995), and Figure 2 compares new registrants by place of graduation with the totalregistration group. Figure 1 indicates that the vast majority of CDAs are trained in British Columbia.Figure 2 shows a fairly equal representation of graduates from B.C., but a slightly lower proportion ofOther Canada graduates and Other Country graduates among the new registrants compared to the totalgroup.Tables I and 2 show the CDAs by specific province or country of graduation; 91.41% of the totalregistration group graduated in B.C., 4.75% in the remainder of Canada, and 3.81% in other countries.The new registrants show a similar distribution, with B.e. graduates making up 92.22%, other Canadiangraduates 4.05% and graduates from other countries 3.57%. In both Table I and Table 2, graduates fromthe U.S. account for the majority of foreign graduates (3.06% and 2.92% respectively). Most non-B.e.Canadian graduates come from the prairie provinces, and most of those from Alberta, though Alberta'sadvantage decreases when looking only at the new registrants only (3.54% of the total group vs. 2.76% ofnew registrants). Looking across the three broad areas of the province, there are some differeuces indistribution by place of graduation. In Vancouver and District. non-B.e. Canadian graduates are 4.37%of the total group but 2.77% of the new registrants, with the largest difference in the proportion of Albertagraduates (3.35% vs. 1.59%). In contrast. non-B.C. Canadian graduates are 3.60% of the total group and2.77% of the new registrants in Capital. In Other B.C., non-B.e. Canadian graduates account for 5.35%in Table I and 5.68% in Table 2, with the largest difference coming from a higher proportion ofSaskatchewan graduates among the new registrants compared to the total group (1.32% vs. 0.83%).Table 3 expands the information provided in Tables I and 2, disaggregating location into healthregions; graduates from the Northwest Territories and provinces east of Ontario are aggregated into thecategory "Other Canada", and foreign graduates are aggregated into the category "Other Country" in thistable. Representation ofB.e.-graduated CDAs in the health regions ranges from highs of over 96% inCentral Vancouver Island (96.78%), and Caribou and Northern Interior (96.30% each) 10close to 85% inWest Kootenay-Boundary (85.32%). North West has the highest percentage of CDA graduates from othercountries (9.89%). While the number of CDAs in this health region is relatively small (91), thispercentage is well above the provincial average at3.81 %. There is one health region, Northern Interior,which show all CDAs as having graduated within Canada.1 The Dentists Act, ]979 mandates registration with theCDSBC andlicensurein order to practiseas a certifieddental assistant in B.C.Table 4 uses this same formal, this time presenting the average number of years since graduation forCDAs. The total on this table excludes fourteen CDAs for whom year of gradnation is unknown. OtherCanada graduates have the highest average years since graduation at 13.83, though province-wide totalsindicate that there are only six CDAs contribnting to this mean; Other Country gradnates show the lowestmean at 8.50 years, followed by B.C. gradnates at 9.33 years. The B.C. graduates show a small amount ofvariation within the individual health regions in mean years since graduation, where the range is from6.77 in North West to 10.89 in North IslandlMid Coast. There is less variation when looking at the"Total" column, where the range is from 7.42 years in North West to 10.91 years in North IslandlMidCoast.Tables showing mean years since first registration in B.C. and mean age for CDAs are not published asthey do not offer a great deal of additional information about this group. The tables have been produced,however, and are available on request.34Figure 180§ 70:sE 60S 50•enil 40••u• 30•0-100Place of Graduation by HHRU Health Regionfor Certified Dental Assistants in British Columbia lNovember 1995I-II-IRlJ Health Region[" Vancouver & District[] CapitalmJOther B.C.-~_.__.._._---British Columbia Other CanadaPlace of GraduationOther CountryFigure 2Type of Registrants by Place of Graduationfor Certified Dental Assistants in British Columbia lNovember 19951 Excludes CDA" whose place ofgraduation is unknown.L-~~~~~~~~~~__~~~~~ ~ .~__New Registrants1 Excludes CDA" whose place of graduation is unknown.Prepared by:Health Human Resources UnitUniversity of British ColumbiaAU RegistrantsTable 1Certified Dental Assistants' in British Columbiaby Place of Graduation by HHRU Health RegionNovember 1995Vancouverand District Cllpital Other H.C.

Those included in this report were registered with the CDHBC and hada British Columbia address at the date of record. (See ROLLCALL 95 for a detaileddefinition of this group.) The conditionally licensed category in the tables includes dentalpublic health hygienists and conditionally licensed hygienists who are qualified to practise asdental hygienists, except that they are not authorised to administer local anaesthesia(formerly dental hygienists onpermit). Registration with the CDHBC does not necessarilyimply employment in dental hygiene. Data presented in the tables are based on homeaddress for the majority of dental hygienists. Precise percentages of home vs. employment orother address are not known.April 1996.The College of Dental Hygienists of British Columbia (CDHBC) and the Health HumanResources Unit (HHRU) survey.Figure I illustrates the locatiou of dental hygienists in B.C. by place of graduation for all hygienists. Table Ishows the location of dental hygienists in B.C. by place of graduation for full and conditionally licensed dentalhygienists. Table 2 shows this same information for new registrants (registrants In the CDSBC and/or CDHBCbetween October 1993 and April 1996)2, and Figure 2 compares new registrants by place of graduation with thetotal (full and conditionally) registered group. Figure 1 shows that a fairly equal number of hygienists are trainedin British Colnmbia and Other Canada. Figure 2 suggests there are some differences between the total group andthe new registrants, with the new registrants having a smaller representation of B.C. graduates. The proportion ofB.C. graduates in the total group (Table 1) is 44.38%, but as suggested by Figure 2, a smaller proportion of thenew registrants are B.C. graduates (41.84%). For Other Canada graduates the opposite is true, the proportion ofnew registrants is slightly larger than for the total group (49.65% versus 44.37%). The province which appears tocoutribute most to this difference is Ontario (13.96% in Table 1 vs. 21.63% in Table 2). lu both the total groupand the new registrants, U.S. graduates account for the vast majority of foreign-trained dental hygienists; 9.42% ofthe total group and 7.09% of the uew registrants.The distribution of Canadian-trained and foreign-trained dental hygienists across the three broad areas of theprovince shows quite a bit of variance on both Table 1 and Table 2. Table 1 indicates that graduates of Albertaprograms are more likely to locate in Other B.C. than in Capital or Vancouver and District: 15.44% of dentalhygienists in Other B.C. are graduates of Alberta programs, compared to 9.51 % in Vancouver and District and9.32% in Capital. In contrast, graduates of Quebec programs account for 5.87% of dental hygienists in Vancouverand District, but only 3.11 % in Capital and 2.51 % in Other B.C. Graduates of B.C. programs are more likely tolocate in Capital (50.93%) than in Vancouver and District (44.48%) or Other B.C. (42.37%). U.S. graduatesaccount for more than one-tenth of dental hygienists in Vancouver and District (10.35%) and Other B.C.(10.05%), but only 3.11 % in Capital. The new registrant table (Table 2) indicates that B.C. graduates are morelikely In locate in Capital (68.75%) than in Other B.C. (46.40%) or Vancouver and District (30.40%). Graduatesfrom Quebec represent 5.32% of the new registrant group, but 11.20% of new registrants in Vancouver andDistrict. Comparisons between the two tables should be made with caution, as the numbers in the new registranttable are relatively small.1 In order to practise as a denial hygienistin B.C., it is necessary to beregisteredby the CDHBC and to hold a fnll orconditional license.2 The Collegeof Dental Hygienists of BritishColumbia(CDHBC) replacedthe Collegeof DentalSurgeonsof BritishColumbia(CDSBC) as the regulatory bodyfor dentalhygienists in March, 1995.A table showing all hygienists registered with the CDHBC was also produced. However, all the differencesbetween it and Table I were less than one percent so the table has not been included this year. A separate table foronly non-practising hygienists is also not included becanse of the small number of dental hygieuists in thisregistration category; in April 1996 the non-practising category included only 42 hygienists. These tables areavailable upon request.Table 3 expands the information provided in Table I, disaggregating location into health regions; graduatesfrom the provinces east of Ontario are aggregated into the category "Other Canada", and foreign graduates areaggregated into the category "Other Country". The small numbers in some of the health regions must be kept inmind. B.C. graduates comprise 44.27% of the total population of dental hygienists, but make up far higherproportions than this in the Northern Interior (81.67%) and Cariboo (61.90%) health regions. East Kootenayshows the smallest proportion of B.C. graduates, with only four of the twenty-five dental hygienists located therehaving trained in B.C. Graduates from other countries are 11.19% of the provincial total, but range inrepresentation in the health regions from 24.00% in East Kootenay to 4.17% in Thompson Valley.Table 4 uses this same format. this time showing mean years since graduation. Total figures show a highermean years since graduation for dental hygienists graduating in other countries than those graduating in Canada.Among Canadian graduates, the lowest mean years since graduation is for those trained in Other Canada (7.45),followed by graduates of B.C. institutions (8.56). The highest mean years since graduation is found for Albertagraduates (13.57), which suggests that dental hygienists in B.C. who are graduates of Alberta institutions tend tobe older or that migration of dental hygienists from Alberta to B.C. has declined in recent years. Looking at theNorth Shore health region, the mean years since graduation for all categories falls slightly above the averages forthe province overall. In contrast. in the Simon Fraser health region the comparable figure falls below theprovincial mean for all places of graduation.Table 5 presents mean years since first registration in B.C. for dental hygienists by health region and by placeof graduation. Alberta graduates show the highest mean, at 10.85 years, and Other Canada graduates the lowest at5.60 years. B.C. graduates registered, on average, 8.48 years ago, but the range in the individual health regions isfrom 2.79 years in Northern Interior to 13.79 years in Richmond. For the province as a whole, the range goes from3.87 years in North West to 12.44 years in Richmond.Table 6 presents mean age by health region and by place of graduation. Among Canadian graduates, Albertagraduates have the highest mean age, at 37.54 years, and Other Canada graduates the lowest at 32.46 years. B.C.graduates, with an average age of 35.02 years, again show a fairly wide difference among the health regions, from29.75 years in Peace River - Liard to 38.64 years in Coast Garibaldi. In the province as a whole, the North Westand Northern Interior health regions show the youngest average age for dental hygienists (31.83 and 31.95 yearsrespectively) and Richmond has the oldest average age (39.08 years).1112Figure IPlace of Graduation by HHRU Health Regionfor Dental Hygienists' in British ColumbiaApril 199660=] 40s••"30•~II=0 20~0c,100I-IHRU Health Regionill Vancouver & Districto Capital1m Other n.c.British Columbia Other Canada Other Country_•...._._.--------Place of GraduationI Includes Fully Licensed, Conditionally Licensed and Non-Practising hygienists.Excludes hygienists whose place of graduation is unknown......Fig~~~..Type of Registrants by Place of Graduationfor Dental Hygienists (Full & Conditional License).'in British ColumbiaApril 1996504540=e 35"'='i! 30~ 250en~•~~1050NewRegistrants All RegistrantsI Excludes Non-Practising hygienists.

Data presented in the tables are based onemploymentaddress for the majority of dentists. Precise percentagesof home vs.employmentor other address are not known.November 1995.The College of DentalSurgeons of BritishColumbia (CDSBC).Figure 1 and Table 1present employmentlocation for licenseddentists by place of graduation. Table2 presents this same information for new registrants (registrants to the CDSBC between October 1993 andNovember 1995),and Figure 2 comparesnew registrants by place of graduation with the total registrationgroup. Figure 1 suggests there are fewer licensed dentists who have graduated in B.C. than from otherprovinces in Canada. It also shows variation of location within the province by place of graduation. withthose in the Capital more likely to be graduates of Other Canada than of either B.C. or other countries.Figure 2 shows a fairly similar distribution of B.C. graduates in the new registrant and total registrantgroups, bnt the new registrants have a smaller proportion of Other Canada graduates than the total group.In Tables 1 and 2, B.C. graduates are 37.39% of the total group and 40.51% of the new registrants. whileOther Canada graduates are 46.13% and 40.00% respectively. Much greater differences can be seen whenlooking at these distribntionsacross the three broad areas of the province. In Vanconver and District,Other Canada graduates are 41.77% of the total group but only 28.57% of the new registrants. Graduatesfrom Nova Scotia, Quebec. Manitoba. Saskatchewanand Alberta all show lower representation in the newregistrants compared to the total group. In Other B.C.. Other Canada graduates represent 47.85% of thetotal group but 55.40% of the new registrants, with Nova Scotia. Manitoba, Saskatchewanand Alberta allshowing greater representation in the new registrants than in tile total group. In Capital, there are only atotal of 7 Canadian-graduatednew registrants. so any comparisonsmust be made with caution.Foreign graduates represent a smallerportion of all licensed dentists when compared to the newregistrants (16.48% and 19.49%respectively). The respective contributions of different countries in thesetwo tables, however, show even greater differences; U.S. graduates represent7.08% of tile total group butonly 3.59% of tilenew registrants, and graduates from Hong Kong are 0.45% of the total group but 2.56%of new registrants. As with B.C. and Other Canada graduates, foreign graduates show major differenceswhen looking at distributionsacross areas of the province. Vancouverand District is the location fortwenty-nine of thirty-eightof the new registrants. compared to 210 out of 368 non-Canadian graduates inthe total group. Comparisons between the total group and new registrants for Capital and Other B.C. aredifficult to make because of the small numbers involved.Table 3 presents the informationin Table 1 for all dentists by health region and by place ofgraduation; graduates from the provinceseast of Ontario are aggregated into tile category "Other Canada".1 The Dentists Act, 1979 mandates registration with the CDSBCand licensure in order to practise as a dentistinB.C.and foreign graduates are aggregated into the category "Other Country". B.C. graduates are 36.56% ofthe total population of dentists, but the range in individual bealth regions is from 14.29% in Peace River­Liard to 53.70% in South Fraser Valley. The range in proportion of Alberta graduates is similarly wide,from 5.71% in Coast Garibaldi to 33.33% in Peace River-Liard.Table 4 uses this same format, this time presenting mean years since graduation. B.C. graduatesshow the lowest mean, at 11.73 years, followed by Saskatchewan and Manitoba graduates at 16.36 years.Graduates from other countries record the highest mean years since graduation (21.78), though Albertagraduates are very comparable (21.72 years). Provincial-wide totals show that the Cariboo health regionhas the lowest mean years since graduation at 14.18 years, and Coast Garibaldi the highest at 19.46 years.Looking at Cariboo across all places of graduation, the average years since graduation is lower than theprovinctal average for graduates from all the Canadian provinces, but higher for graduates from othercountries.Table 5 considers mean years since first registration with the CDSBC, and again B.C. graduates showthe lowest mean at 11.63 years. Foreign graduates do not, however, have the highest mean, as they did inTable 4; it is Alberta graduates who have the highest mean years since first registration, registering withthe CDSBC an average of 20.00 years ago. Non-Canadian graduates show the largest difference betweenaverages in Tables 4 and 5 (21.78 vs. 15.89 years respectively), which suggests these graduates may becoming to B.C. with a fair amount of work experience, though years of experience can not be assumeddirectly from years since graduation.Table 6 displays mean age for dentists, again by health region and by place of graduation. B.C.graduates show a mean age of 39.09 years, well over three years less than the mean for Saskatchewan andManitoba graduates of 42.76 years, the next youngest group on average. Graduates from all other areashave much higher average ages, ranging from 46.49 years for Ontario graduates to 48.01 years for Albertagraduates. The overall mean age for dentists is 43.92 years, with a range in the health regions from 39.86in Cariboo to 46.13 in Capital Regional District. Graduates from different areas are not consistently olderor younger than the provincial average in the Capital Regional District. In Cariboo however, Canadiangraduates show a younger mean age than the provincial average, while Other Country graduates show anolder mean age than the provincial average.2122______________ }':i~u_l'_e_1 ,Place of Graduation by HHRU Health Regionfor Licensed Dentists1 in British ColumbiaNovember 19957060c~~ 40~0" 30es'E0~ 200'"100British Columbia Other CanadaPlace of GraduationOther CountryHURl} Health Regiono Vancouver & DistrictnCapitalIlaOthcr B.C.1 ExcludesTemporary and Non-practising dentists.Figure 2Type of Registrants by Place of Graduationfor Licensed Dentists1 in British ColumbiaNovember 199545cc"'c'"s 30••'"25•"s 20Iiu• 15•'" 1050Place of GraduationCl British Columbiao Other CanadaffilOther CountryNew Registrants1 Excludes Temporary and Non-practising dentists.All Registrants--------------_._--_.-Prepared by:Health Human Resources UnitUulversity of British ColumbiaTable 1Licensed Dentists1 in British Columbiaby Place of Graduation by HHRU Health RegionNovember 1995Vancouverand District Capital Other H.C.

Registration with theCPBC does not necessarily imply employment in the field. The data in the tablesare presented based on employment address when pharmacists report employmentin pharmacy. Employment address was available for 87% of pharmacists employedin pharmacy; home address was used for pharmacists not employed in pharmacy.September 1995.The College of Pharmacists of British Columbia (CPBC).Figure 1 and Table 1 present location of pharmacists by place of graduation. Table 2 presents thissame information for new registrants (registrants to the CPBC between September 1993 and September1995), and Figure 2 compares new registrants by place of graduatiou with the total registration group.Figure I indicates that the majority of pharmacists in B.C. graduated in this province. Figure 2 suggeststhat the new registrants have a smaller proportion of B.C. graduates and larger proportions of graduatesfrom Other Canada and other countries than the total group. Looking at Tables 1 and 2, the percentage ofB.C. graduates is shown as 76.73% in the whole group, but only 61.94% in the new registrants. Theproportion of Other Canada graduates is only 16.79% of the whole group, but increases to 26.99% of thenew registrants. The largest differences seen in the proportions of Other Canada graduates between thetwo tables occur with Saskatchewan and Alberta graduates, who are 6.62% and 5.53% respectively of theoverall group and 11.42% and 10.03% respectively of the new registrants. The differences in theproportions of foreign graduates between Tables 1 and 2 (6.07% on Table 1 and 9.69% on Table 2) areexplained mostly by higher proportions of European graduates (2.67% vs, 3.81%), South Africangraduates (0.62% vs. 2.42%) and Australian graduates (0.29% vs, 1.38%) among the new registrants.Tables 1 and 2 show larger differences when comparing distributions across the three broadly definedlocations in the province. However, the small numbers in some of the cells in Table 2 should beconsidered when drawing conclusions from these differences. The percentage of B.C. graduates inVancouver and District on Table 1 is 79.38%, compared to 66.46% on Table 2, while in Other B.C., thepercentage ofB.C. graduates is 56.88% in Table 1 and 39.45% in Table 2. In Vancouver and District, theproportion of Other Canada graduates in the new registrants is slightly higher than in the overall group(16.47% vs. 12.41%), while in Capital and Other B.C., the differences in the proportions of Other Canadagraduates between the new registrants and the overall group are much greater (50.00% vs. 26.97% inCapital, and 39.45% vs. 21.38% in Other B.C.). In particular, the proportions of Alberta graduates aremuch higher in the new registrant table than in the overall gronp for both Capital and Other B.C. Thedistribntion across the regions in Table 1 is fairly even with regard to the proportions of Canadiangraduates, but varies in proportional representation from the different provinces. B.C. graduates have ahigh concentration in Vancouver and District, where they are 79.38% of pharmacists, a slightly lowerconcentration in Other B.C. (74.60%), and are only 68.05% of pharmacists in Capital. In contrast,graduates from Saskatchewan are 3.36% of pharmacists in Vancouver and District, 10.58% in Other B.C.and 12.03% in Capital.Table 3 displays the information from Table 1 for pharmacists by health region and by place ofgraduation, with graduates from the provinces east of Ontario are aggregated into the single category1 TIle Pharmacists, Pharmacy Operations & Drug Scheduling Act, 1993 mandates registration with theCPBCinorder to practise as a pharmacist in B.C."Other Canada", and foreign graduates aggregated into the single category "Other Country". Theprovincial average for proportion of B.C. graduates in the health regions is 76.73%, but the range in theindividual health regions goes from 61.11% in East Kootenay to 84.85% in Cariboo. East Kootenay has ahigh percentage of Alberta graduates (19.44% vs. provincial averageof 5.53%) and graduates fromManitoba and Saskatchewan (11.11 % vs. provincial average of 8.89%). This same sort of distribution canbe seen in the South Okanagan-Similkameen health region. The Burnabyhealth region shows the highestpercentage of Other Country graduatesat 12.21%, compared to a provincial average of 6.07%.Table 4 uses this same format, presentingmean years since graduation. Other Canada graduatesshow the lowest mean years siuce graduationat 13.78, while Saskatchewanand Manitoba graduates havethe highest at 20.86 years. Capital Health shows a higher than provincial average years since graduationin all columns where this is calculated. East Kootenay has the highest mean years since graduation in theTotal column at 18.64,compared to NOrOl West at 11.20 years (the lowest). Pharmacists in North West,in fact, have a mean years since graduation that is much lower than the provincial average for all places ofgraduation where this is calculated.Table 5 presents mean years since first registration in B.C., again by health region and by place ofgraduation. On this table, it is again the graduates from Other Canada (8.52 years) who show the lowestaverage. B.C. graduates have been registered with the CPBC for an average of 14.35 years, whileSaskatchewan and Manitoba graduateshave been registered the longest, at 14.74years. The discrepancybetween mean years since graduationand mean years since first registration suggests graduates from otherareas come to B.C. only after some amount of work experience, though the quantity of experience can notbe ascertained; some time between graduationand registration in B.C. may be spent unemployedoremployed in other fields.Table 6 looks at pharmacists' mean age by health region and by place of gradnation. There is almostan eight year variation in mean age for pharmacists based on place of graduation, with graduates fromOther Canada showing the lowest mean age at 36.81 years, and Saskatchewanand Manitoba graduatesshowing the oldest mean age at 44.30 years. B.C. graduates have a mean age of 38.71 years.

(See ROLLCALL 95 for a detailed definition of this group.) DirectoryActive includes physicians who are on the "full", "special" or "temporary" registers(temporary includes those who are in postgraduate training or who have atemporary licence to practise). Postgraduate physicians are Directory Active, eitheron the full or temporary registers, and who, according to CPSBC records, areinvolved in postgraduate work. Non-postgraduate physicians are Directory Activephysicians who, according to CPSBC records, are not involved in postgraduatework. Non-postgraduate physicians are, in some tables, further divided intogeneralists and specialists; generalists are General Practice and Family Practicephysicians, and specialists encompass all other specialty categories. Data presentedin tile tables are based on employment address for the majority of physicians.Precise percentages of horne vs. employment or other addrcss are not known.October 1995.The College of Physicians and Snrgeons of British Columbia (CPSBC).41Figure I is a graphic presentation of statistics from Tables I and 2 combined, showing presentemployment location for Directory Active physicians by place of graduation. Table 3 presents the place ofgraduation for new registrants (registrants to the CPSBC between September 1993 and October 1995)with non-postgraduate status, and Figure 2 compares non-postgraduate new registrants by place ofgraduation with the total non-postgraduate registration group. Figure I shows a predominance ofgraduates from other Canadian provinces registered with the CPSBC. Figure 2 shows that B.C. graduatesaccount for a smaller percentage of new registrants than total registrants. There also seems to be aslightly higher level of foreign graduates in the new registrants eompared with the total group.Tables I and 2 divide tile Directory Active physician total into non-postgraduate (Table I) andpostgraduate (Table 2). The proportion of B.C. gradnates is slightly lower for non-postgraduatephysicians Ulan for postgraduate physicians (25.55% vs. 29.69%), while the proportion of Other Canadagradnates is somewhat higher for non-postgraduate physicians than for postgraduate physicians (45.31 %vs.40.22%). There are larger differences when looking at place of graduation by location in the province.In Capital, 53.98% of non-postgraduate physicians are graduates of non-B.C. Canadian medical schools,compared to 36.67% of the postgraduate physicians. In Other B.C. these percentages are 46.24% for tilenon-postgraduate physicians and 59.09% for the postgraduates, while in Vancouver and District theproportions of non-B.c. Canadian graduates in Tables I and 2 are somewhat closer at 43.12% of the non­postgraduate physicians and 39.42% of tile postgraduates. Iu Capital, it is the graduates from B.C. whoaccount for the major differences between Tables I and 2; they make up 19.15% of tile non-postgraduatephysician population but 60.00% of the postgraduate. Ontario also posts a high difference, with 20.65%of non-postgraduates in Capital, and only 10.00% of postgraduate physicians. In Other B.C., graduatesfrom B.C. (23.51 % non-postgraduate vs. 40.91 % postgraduate) and Ontario (14.46% non-postgraduate vs.36.36% postgraduate) account for the major differences between Tables I and 2.The Medical Practitioners Act, 1979 mandates registration with the CPSBC in order to practise as a physician inH.C.42The range in percentage of foreign graduates among non-postgraduate physicians is from 26.87% inCapital to 30.25% in Other B.C., while the range among postgraduate physicians is from 0.00% in OtherB.C. to 32.63% in Vancouver and District. As with Canadian graduates, the non-Canadian portions ofthe non-postgraduate and postgraduate physician tables are most similar in Vancouver and District.Within the foreign graduates group in Vancouver and District, however, there are some differences worthnoting. European graduates represent 15.54% of the non-postgraduate physician population, but 10.73%of the postgraduate. In contrast, Asian graduates comprise 5.85% of the non-postgraduate group but14.35% of the postgraduates.Table 3 shows new registrants to the CPSBC with non-postgraduate status. Since it only outlinesnon-postgraduates, it will be compared with Table I, the total group of non-postgraduate physicians. Thetotal proportion of Canadian graduates is slightly higher in Table I compared to Table 3 (70.86% vs.69.00%). Looking at changes of greater than 1%, 13 .C. graduates represent a far smaller proportion ofnon-postgraduate new registrants than they do in the total group (13.98% vs. 25.55%). Manitobagraduates are also slightly less well-represented among the new registrants (3.34% vs. 4.78%). Incontrast, graduates from Newfoundland, Ontario, Saskatchewan and Alberta all show higher percentagesamong the new registrants compared to the total group (3.04% vs. 1.08%, 19.76% vs. 15.75%,6.38% vs.4.12% and 16.41% vs. 12.45% respectively). Among the non-Canadian graduates, there are two largedifferences that should be noted; European graduates account for 9.73% of the non-postgraduate newregistrants (5.17% from the U.K.), but are 16.48% of the total non-postgraduate group (11.92% from theU.K.). Graduates from Africa show an opposite trend, representing 12.77% of the non-postgraduate newregistrants (10.94% from South Africa), but are only 5.04% of the total non-postgraduate group (4.43%from South Africa). Non-postgraduate new registrants from South Africa, in fact, are in fonrth placebehind graduates from Ontario (19.76%), Alberta (16.41 %) and B.C. (13.98%) in terms of percentagecontribution to the new registrant group.Table 3 also shows some differences when looking at place of graduation by location in the province.B.C. gradnates have their highest representation in Vancouver and District (18.24%) and lowest inCapital (7.14%). Although the proportions of all Other Canada graduates are fairly consistent across tileprovince (55.41 % in Vancouver and District, 57.15% in Other B.C. and 54.25% in Capital), theproportions of graduates from the individual provinces show a wider variation. Alberta and Ontariogradnates show the highest percentages in Capital (21.43% and 25.00%), compared with Alberta's lowestin Vancouver and District (13.51 %) and Ontario's lowest in Other B.C. (16.99%). For foreign graduates,provincial variations also exist. Graduates from Africa, for example, make up 20.92% of the non­postgraduate new registrants in Other B.C., compared with only 10.71% in Capital and 4.73% inVanconver and District.The last nine tables in this chapter show subsets of the Directory Active physician group by healthregion and place of graduation; in all these tables,graduates from theprovinceseast of Ontario areaggregated into tile category "Other Canada", and foreign graduates are aggregated into the category"Other Country". These subsets are used in order to present more specific and usefnl information aboutthe distribution of physicians in B.C. by place of graduation. Tables 4 to 6 present postgraduatephysicians by healthregion, by mean years since graduation, andby mean age. Tables 7 to 9 repeat thesesame tables for non-postgraduate generalists, and Tables 10 to 12 show non-postgraduate specialists.Data abont date of first registration in B.C. were not available for all physicians, so tables depicting yearssince first registration were not produced. There is a great deal of information in these tables, and manyways to look at it; tile focus of this discussion will be a brief description of the postgraduate group and ashort comparison of the non-postgraduate generalists and specialists. It should be noted that tileaggregation of like tables (postgraduate plus non-postgraduate generalists plus non-postgraduatespecialists) gives tile total Directory Active physician population; tables presenting the Directory Activegroup as a whole were produced, and areavailable uponrequest.Table 4 shows that the vast majority of postgraduate physicians are located in Vancouver (623 out of714). B.C. graduates make np 27.13% of the postgraduate physicians located in Vancouver, compared toa provincial total of 29.69%. Graduates from other countries account for 34.19% of tile postgraduatephysicians in Vancouver. but only 30.39% overall. Capital Health has tile largest number of postgraduatephysicians outside of Vancouver (30), of which 60.00% arc B.C. graduates and only 3.33% graduatedoutside Canada.Table 5 shows mean years since graduation for postgraduate physicians. B.C graduates have thelowest mean years since graduation at 2.40 and graduates from other countries tile highest at 9.31. Theprovincial totals by health region show Vancouver with tile highest mean years since graduation (5.22).Table 6 presents mean age of postgraduate physicians, and shows that graduates from Saskatchewan& Manitoba have tile lowest mean age (28.70 years) and graduates from other countries have tile highest(34.17 years). As might be expected after examining Table 5, provincial totals by health region showpostgraduate physicians in Vancouver with tile highest mean age (31.43 years).Table 7 and Table 10 show tile same information for non-postgraduate status generalists and non­postgraduate specialists, respectively. Provincial totals by place of graduation show a far higherproportion of B.C. graduates among the generalists compared to the specialists (31.75% vs. 17.51%,respectively), while tile specialists show a farhigher proportion of foreign graduates compared to tilegeneralists (35.08% vs. 24.55%). In both tables, there are wide ranges of representation of each place ofgraduation within the individual health regions; in Table 7, the percentage of B.C. graduates ranges from13.48% in East Kootenay to 41.43% in tile North Shore, while in Table 10 this range is from 0.00% inPeace River-Liard to 24.76% in Richmond. The proportion of generalist graduates from other countriesranges from 15.97% in North Okanagan to 58.82% in Peace River-Liard, while tile proportion ofspecialists who graduated outside Canada goes from 19.87% in South Okanagan-Similkameen to 71.43%in Peace River-Liard. There are also differences between the two tables in proportion of graduates fromother provinces, but tile magnitude of tile differences is smaller.Tables 8 and 11 show mean years since graduation for non-postgraduate generalists and specialists.In both tables, it is B.C. graduates who have the lowest mean; 14.52 years in Table 8 and 20.45 years inTable 11. Graduates from other countries show tile highest mean years since graduation in both tables, at23.75 in Table 8 and 27.78 in Table II. The mean years since graduation for generalists is, in fact, lowerthan for specialists for all places of graduation and all health region totals. The provincial totals by healthregion suggest a range in means for generalists that is somewhat smaller than that seen by place ofgraduation; Peace River-Liard has tile lowest mean in Table 8 at 14.49 years, and Upper Fraser Valley tilehighest at 20.36. In Table II, Northern Interior has the lowest mean at 21.35 years, and Coast Garibaldithe highest at 29.95 years.Tables 9 and 12 show mean age for non-postgraduate generalist and specialist physicians. As mightbe expected after examining Tables 8 and 11, tile mean age of generalists is lower than that of specialistsfor all places of graduation and all health region totals. The smallest difference in mean age by place ofgraduation is seen for graduates of other countries; generalists of this type have an average age of 49.03years, and specialists are, on average, 52.54 years.

(See ROLLCALL 95 for a detaileddefinition of this group.) Registrationdoes not necessarily imply employment in thefield. The data in the tables are presentedbased on employmentaddress whenLPNs report employment in nursing and employmentaddress is available. In 1995,employmentaddresswas available for 84% of LPNs employed in nursing. Homeaddress is used for the remainder, as well as for LPNs not employed in nursing.September 1995.The British ColumbiaCouncil of Licensed PracticalNurses (BCCLPN).The number of LPNs with unknownplace of graduationshould be kept in mind when using all ofthese tables: 168 (2.97%) of the total group are unknownin termsof place of graduation, as is one(0.22%) of 111e new registrants. Figure I and Table I preseut employmentlocation for LPNs by place ofgraduation. Table 2 presents tilis same information for new registrants (registrants to 111e BCCLPNbetween September 1993and September 1995),and Figure 2 comparesnew registrants by place ofgraduation with the total registrants. The figures show that tilemajority of LPNs are graduates of B.C.programs, though in tile new registrant group there are fewer LPNs coming from B.C. compared to thetotal registration group, and more coming from 0111er provinces in Canada.Tables I and 2 show specific provinceor country of graduation for LPNs. Table I indicates 5.78% ofregistered members of the BCCLPNare graduates of foreign programs,with the United Kingdom beingthe largest single contributor (2.70%). The new registrants (Table 2), compared to the total group, show asmaller proportion of B.C. graduates (58.19%vs. 65.56%), as was suggestedby Figure 2. Correspondingto this is a higher proportion of new registrants from other Canadianprovinces, specifically Ontario(7.37% of the total group vs. 14.44% of the new registrants), and Alberta (7.72% of the total group vs.10.34% of the new registrants).There is a far greater representationof foreign LPN graduates in Vancouver and District (11.35%)than in either tile Capital (3.23%) or Other B.C. (2.40%). Graduatesfrom Hong Kong, specifically, workexclusively in Vancouver and District (26), and are absent in tile rest of province. Similarly, graduatesfrom the United Kingdom are concentrated in Vancouver and District (5.32%), compared to 1.53% inCapital and 1.10% in Other B.C. Graduates from tile Philippinesare also concentrated in Vancouver andDistrict (2.01%), compared to 0.51% in Capital and 0.27% in Other B.C. Amongthe Canadiangraduates, those trained in Nova Scotia make up 2.72% of LPNs in the Capital, compared to just over 1%elsewhere, while Quebec graduatesacccunt for 1.20%of Vancouverand DistrictLPNs, 0.85% in theCapital and 0.40% in Other B.C. Alberta graduates have their strongest representation in 0111er B.C.(9.28%), but make up only 7.30% of LPNs in Capital and 5.60%of LPNs in Vancouver and District.Table 3 disaggregatesLPN numbers by health region and presents them based on broader place ofgradnation categories; graduates from tile northern territoriesand provinceseast of Ontario areaggregated into the category "Other Canada", and gradnates from other countries are aggregated into thecategory "Other Country". The range in proportion of B.C. graduates in different health regions is from ahigh of 81.91% in Central Vancouver Island to a low of 48.15% in PeaceRiver-Liard. The Peace River­Liard health region has the highest percentageof Alberta graduates at 25.93%, perhaps in part because1 TheHealth Professions Act, 1990mandates registration with theBCCLPN in order to practise as anLPNinB.C.this region shares a long border with Alberta in the northeast section of B.C. Graduates of other counttieshave far higher representation in Vancouver (15.38%), Burnaby (11.48%), Richmond (10.94%) andSimon Fraser (10.64%) than they do in the other health regions.Table 4 uses the same format as Table 3, this time presenting informationon the average number ofyears since graduation. The "Total" figures across tilebottom indicatea large difference in B.C. vs,non­B.C. gradnates in termsof years since graduation, with the B.C. graduates having a significantly lowermean than graduates from other places; B.C.-trainedLPNs graduated on average 15.85 years ago, andOntario graduates showed the next lowest mean at 20.18 years since graduation. Those trained in othercountties graduated, on average, 24.29 years ago. Among the B.C. graduates there is a wide variation inmean years since graduation, from a high in PeaceRiver-Liardof 21.04 to lows in Burnaby andRichmond of 11.82 and 11.64, respectively. The Cariboo health region, in general, with the exception ofgradnates listed in "Other Canada", shows higher means for each place of graduation than tile provincialaverage. This may indicate a low turnoverof LPNs in this region, a longer career life for LPNs there, orperhaps it may be that a few LPNs with long tenuresare weighting the average upwards.Table 5 presents informationon tile average numberof years since first registration with theBCCLPN. This table is again presented by health region and place of graduation, and indicates smallerdifferences in the total figures than seen in Table 4. Ontario graduates show the lowest mean years sincefirst registration, at 10.69, while B.C. graduates post the highest at 14.69. Looking at this table inconjunction with Table 4 suggests that LPNs who graduateelsewheremove to B.C., on average, only afterworking some time as an LPN outside B.C. The differencebetween mean years since graduationandmean years for first registration is above 8.5 years for all place of graduationcategories except B.C.graduates, who show a difference of only 1.16years. How this translates in terms of actual workexperience is unclear, as it is feasible that not all time from graduationelsewhere to registration in B.C. isspent working as an LPN.A final look at the differences for LPNs in termsof place of graduationis Table 6, which showsaverage age of LPNs by health region and place of graduation. As might be expected after examiningTables 4 and 5, LPNs graduating in B.C. have a youngermean age than graduates from other areas.Looking at the provincial totals, it appears that Burnabyhas a LPN population that is relatively youngcompared to the rest of the province (40.77 years), while PeaceRiver-Liardhas the "oldest" LPN group(45.01 years), though neither is too far away from the provincialmean of 43.38 years.6162r-r- . ~Figul'e 1Place of Graduation by HHRU Health Regionfor Licensed Practical Nurses in British Columbia'September 1995HHRt] Health RegionID V';;;;;'.';<;~;:-& District.1ClCapital1m Other 13.c._ ••_•• ' .•••M •• '"~""·••_~British Columbia Other CanadaPlace of GraduationOther CountryI Excludes L,PNs whose place of graduation is unknown.Figul'e~. ._ ..Type of Registrauts by Place of Graduationfor Licensed Practical Nurses in British Columbia'September 1995706010oNew RegistrantsJ Excludes LPNs whose place ofgraduation is unknown.Prepared by:Health Human Resources UnitUnlverstty of British ColumbiaAURegistrantsPlace of GraduationD British Columbia I[J Other Canada~::~C:?~.~~:~!~_LJTable 1Licensed Practical Nurses in British Columbiaby Place of Graduation by HHRD Health RegionSeptember 1995Vancouverand District Capital Other n.c.

Those includedin this report had British Columbia addresses at the date of record. (See ROLLCAU 95 for adetailed definition of this gronp.) RNs must retain a practising membership in the RNABCin order to work as registered nurses, but a practising membership does not necessarily implyemployment in the field. Data in the tables are presented based on employment addresswhen the membership status is practising, when employment in nursing is reported, andwhen employment address is available. In 1995, employment address was available for 88%of practising RNs employed in nursing, Home address is nsed for the remainder, as well asfor practising RNs who are not employed in nursing, and for RNs with non-practisingmembership statns.June 1995.The Registered Nurses Association of British Columbia (RNABC).Figure 1 and Table 1 present employment location for RNs by place of graduation. Table 2 presents this sameinformation for new registrants (registrants to the RNABC between June 1993 and June 1995), and Figure 2compares new registrants by place of graduation with the total registration group. Figure 1 shows that a majorityof RNs graduated in B.e., and that those who graduated outside Canada are more likely to locate in Vancouver andDistrict than in Capital or Other B.C. Figure 2 shows that the new registrants and the total RNABC membershiphave about the same proportional representation of B.C, Other Canada and Other Country graduates. Tables 1 and2 show fairly equal percentages of B.C., Other Canada and foreign graduates; B.e. graduates are 51.06% of thetotal group and 53.41% of the new registrants, Other Canada graduates are 33.54% of the total group and 33.10%of the new registrants, and foreign graduates are 15.36% of the total group and 13.49% of the new registrants.Distribution of graduates from the various provinces is also fairly equal in the total column, although Albertagraduates show a somewhat higher proportional representation among the new registrants (11.39% vs. 8.71%).There are differences when looking at place of graduation by location in the province. Vancouver and Districthas the lowest percentage ofB.e. graduates (49.71 %) in the total group (compared to 52.20% in Other B.e. and53.35% in Capital), but the highest percentage ofB.e. graduates in the new registrant group, 56.05% compared to51.84% in Other B.C. and 43.69% in Capital. Ontario graduates in the total group are more likely to locate inCapital (12.16%), than in Other B.e. (10.45%), or Vancouver and District (9.91%). The same is true for newregistrants from Ontario (15.32% in Capital, 8.96% in Other B.C., 8.38% in Vancouver and District). Albertagraduates on the other hand, are more likely to locate in Other B.C. (11.94% of the total group and 17.28% of thenew registrants) and in Capital (9.74% of the total group and 14.41% of the new registrants), than in Vancouverand District (6.22% of the total group and 6.92% of the new registrants).Non-Canadian graduates also show greater variation when looking across areas of the province than seen inthe provincial totals. Vancouver and District has the largest percentage of foreign-trained RNs in both the totaland new registrant groups (20.89% and 19.39%). The majority of this difference appears to be due to the largeproportion of Asian graduates in Vancouver and District (9.41% of the total group and 10.57% of the newregistrants) compared to Capital (1.33% of the total group and 0.90% of the new registrants) or Other B.C. (1.19%of the total group and 0.86% of the new registrants). European-trained RNs are also more likely to locate inVancouver and District (8.28% of the total group and 5.54% of the new registrants) compared to Capital (5.91% ofthe total group and 2.70% of the new registrants) or Other B.e. (5.06% of the total group and 2.81% of the newregistrants).1 TIle Nurses (Registered) Act, 1979 mandates registration with the RNABC in order to practise as a nurse in D.C.Table 3 presents RNs with non-practising registration status. The total proportions of B.C., Other Canada andforeign graduates in this table compared to Table I are fairly similar (48.06% vs. 51.06%, 33.75% vs. 33.54% and18.04% vs. 15.36% respectively). The distributions across the province vary slightly more. In Capital for instance,Ontario graduates represent 14.20% of the non-practising group but 12.16% of the total group, while graduatesfrom B.C. show an opposite trend (48.58% in Table 3 vs. 53.35% in Table 1). Other Canada graduates in OtherB.C. are 35.58% of the RNs with non-practising status, compared to 38.54% of the total group, with the largestvariations in Ontario (11.34% vs. 10.45%) and Manitoba (3.72% vs. 4.61%). B.C. graduates in Other B.C. are50.54% of the RNs with non-practising status, compared to 52.20% of the total group. There are also somerelatively large differences in the non-Canadian component of Other B.C., where U.S. graduates are 3.18% of thenon-practising group but 1.62% of the total group, and U.K. graduates are 6.81 % of non-practising and4.22% ofthe total group. Separate tables on practising members of the RNABC, and practising RNs who reportedemployment in the field were also produced this year, but they are not included as the distributions were all withinone percentage point of those seen in Table I.Table 4 takes the information presented in Table 1 and presents it by health region, aggregating the graduatesfrom the provinces east of Ontario into the single category "Other Canada" and also aggregating the graduatesfrom other countries into the single category "Other Country". The proportion of B.C. graduates in the totalmembership of the RNABC is 51.06%, but the range in the individual health regions is from less than 33.52% inPeace River-Liard to 65.25% in Thompson Valley. Alberta graduates have their highest representation in EastKootenay (25.25%) and Peace River-Liard (24.23%), but make up only 5.18% of RNs in Simon Fraser. Ontariograduates are 10.38% of the total RN population, and the largest proportion of Canadian but non-B .C. trained RNs.Ontario graduates are far more evenly distributed across health regions than are graduates from Alberta, makingup a low of 7.09% ofRNs in Northern Interior and a high of 14.24% in North West. Gradnates from othercountries are most likely to be found in Richmond (25.31% of the total), Burnaby (22.64%) and Vancouver(22.37%), and least likely to be found in Thompson Valley (4.90%).Table 5 uses this same format, this time presenting mean years since graduation by health region and by placeof graduation. B.C.-trained RNs graduated, on average, 15.73 years ago, compared to foreign gradnates where themean is 24.94 years. RNs in the North Shore health region show a mean years since graduation of 21.39, thehighest of any health region. RNs in North Shore, in fact, show mean years since graduation higher than theprovincial average for all places of graduation. This may suggest RNs in North Shore are slightly older and/orhave more experience than their counterparts in other areas of the province, though experience can not be directlyassumed from years since graduation.Table 6 looks at mean years since first registration with the RNABC by health region and by place ofgraduation. B.C. graduates show the highest mean years siuce first registration, at 15.42 years. The lowest meanis found among Alberta graduates, where it is 13.54 years. 111is is a relatively tight distribution, as is the variationseen for the means across the health regions. The range across the health regions is from 12.41 years in PeaceRiver-Liard to 17.21 years in North Shore. Only Alberta graduates in the Peace River-Liard region have a meanyears since first registration with the RNABC that is less than 10 (8.98 years).Table 7 illustrates mean age ofRNs, again by health region and by place of graduation. B.C. graduates havethe yonngest mean age - 40.47 years - as might be expected after examining Table 5. Foreign graduates have thehighest mean age at 47.36 years. The provincial mean indicates that the overall age of RNs in B.C. is 42.68 years,with a range in the health regions from 39.87 years in Peace River-Liard to 44.76 years in Central VanconverIsland and 44.53 years in North Shore. Similar to what was seen in Table 5, RNs in North Shore have a highermean age than the provincial average for all places of graduation.71726050•0"40•.c~is 30•en~• 20u•u..10.J!:i~IJEI' 1.-------~ '-~-"---~-~~---IPlace of Graduation by HHRU Health Regionfor Registered Nnrses! in British ColnmbiaJune 1995}-IHRU Health Region1ZI Vancouver & DistrictCJCapital1m Other B.C.British Columbia Other CanadaPlace of GraduationOther Country1 Includes Practising and Non-Practising RNs.

Table 2 presents employment locationfor new registrants (registrants to the RPNABC between October 1993 and December 1995) withpractising status, and Figure 2 compares practising new registrants by place of graduation with the totalpractising registration group (Table 3). Figure 1 indicates that the majority of RPNs in B.C. graduate inthis province. Figure 2 indicates the proportions of both B.C. graduates and of Other Canada graduatesamong the new registrants are larger than in the total practising group, while the proportion of foreigngraduates is smaller.Tables I and 2 show that B.C. graduates are 61.32% of the total membership in the RPNABC and66.67% of the new registrants, while Other Canada graduates are 16.34% of the total membership and25.13% of the new registrants. Other Canada graduates come only from Manitoba, Saskatchewan andAlberta, as there are no training programs for psychiatric nurses in the rest of Canada. Graduates fromSaskatchewan and Alberta, as well as B.C., show higher representation among the new registrantscompared to the total group (9.29% vs, 6.75%, 12.57% vs. 4.03% and 66.67% vs, 61.32%, respectively).Non-Canadian graduates account for 14.29% of the total group, but only 5.46% of the new registrants.11Ie biggest difference in the non-Canadian component is in graduates from Enrope, and specifically theUnited Kingdom. Graduates from the U.K. are 12.98% of the total group, but only 2.73% of the newregistrants.The proportions of B.C., Other Canada and non-Canadian graduates in the three broad areas of theprovince (Vancouver and District, Capital and Other B.C.) also differ when comparing Tables 1 and 2. InVancouver and District, B.C. graduates are 65.00% of the total group but 80.45% of the new registrantswhile non-Canadian graduates are 17.15% and 5.26%, respectively. As with the overall numbers,Saskatchewan, Alberta and B.C. have higher representation among the new registrants than the totalgroup in Vancouver and District. 11Iebiggest difference among the foreign graduates is in those whograduated in the U.K. (15.72% in Table 1 vs. 1.50% in Table 2). In Other B.C., there is a much smallerproportion of B.C. graduates among tne new registrants compared to all registrants (30.43% vs. 53.87%,respectively), but much larger proportions of Saskatchewan and Alberta graduates among the new1 The Nurses (RegisteredPsychiatric) Act, 1979 mandates registration with the RPNABC in order to practise as anRPN inB.C.registrants than the total gronp (23.91% vs. 12.07%, respectively, from Saskatchewan and 36.96% vs.9.44%, respectively, from Alberta.), Comparisons between the new registrants and the total gronp inCapital shonld be made with cantion, as the number of new registrants is relatively small.Table 3 shows the distribution of practising members of the RPNABC by place of graduation, andTable 4 shows the distribution of non-practising members. Differences between Table I (the total group)and Tables 3 and 4 exist and should be uoted; the discussion here, however, will focus on the differencesbetween Table 3 and Table 4. TIle small number of foreign graduates with non-practising membership(21) limits the possibilities of discussion, though it can be noted that these twenty-one represent 5.75% ofthe non-practising membership; in contrast, non-Canadian graduates are 15.63% of the practisingmembership. All but one non-Canadian graduate in Table 4 came from the U.K., as did 328 of the 362(90.61 %) foreign-graduated RPNs in Table 3. The proportion of practising B.C. graduates is smaller thanthe proportion of non-practising B.C. graduates in all three broad areas of the province (63.86% vs.74.16% in Vancouver and District, 44.09% vs. 64.00% in Capital and 50.87% vs. 65.65% in Other B.C.).This is in contrast to the proportions of Other Canada graduates, which are higher among the practisingmembers compared to the non-practising members (10.81% vs. 6.70% in Vancouver and District, 34.65%vs. 16.00% in Capital and 33.40% vs. 17.56% in Other B.C.).Table 5 presents location for RPNs by health region and by place of gradnation, with foreigngraduates aggregated into one category. The Simon Fraser health region is the location of 1,075 RPNs outof 2,681 total, as this health region is the location of several large RPN employers, including B.C.'s onlypsychiatric hospital. This health region also holds a far larger proportion of Other Country graduates(63.45%) than it does Canadian graduates (36.94%). In fact, foreign graduates are fairly sparse in the restof the province, and there are four health regions without any foreign-trained RPNs: East Kootenay, WestKootenay-Boundary, North Okanagan, and Coast Gatibaldi.Table 6 uses the same format as Table 5, this time presenting mean years since graduation. Albertagradnates have the lowest mean at 16.47 years, followed closely by B.C. graduates at 17.90 years. OtherCountry graduates show a mean years since graduation that is mnch larger (25.78 years), with theThompson Valley health region having the single highest for non-Canadian graduates at 29.88 years. Theoverall provincial average for years since graduation is 19.31, with a range from 13.83 years in CoastGaribaldi to 24.63 in West Kootenay-Boundary.Data provided by the RPNABC did not include date of initial registration, so a table showing meanyears since first registration could not be produced. Table 7 presents mean age for RPNs by health regionand by place of graduation. As might be expected after examining Table 6, B.C., Alberta andSaskatchewan & Manitoba graduates all have a lower mean age than graduates from other countries.B.C. graduates, however, have a slightly lower mean age than Alberta graduates, even though the Alberta­trained RPNs have, on average, a lower mean years since gradnation. This may reflect differences in theeducation programs in these two provinces, or the age at which people choose to enter the programs. (Itshould also be kept in mind that the "N" used for these two tables is different, because of vatiation in thecompleteness of the data.)85867060" 50.S;;'"'C 40§"" 30!!"""-20"c,'00Figure IPlace of Graduation by HHRU Health Regionfor Registered Psychiatric Nurses' in British ColumbiaDecember 1995HI-IRD Health RegionmVancouver & Districto Capital1m Other n.c..British Columbia Other CanadaPlace of GraduationOther CountryI Includes Practising and Non-Practising RPNs, Excludes RPNs whose place of graduation is unknown.Figure 2 . _Type of Registrants by Place of Graduationfor Practising Registered Psychiatric' Nurses in British ColumbiaDecember 19957060"500'""'"'C 40~:',30~"~" 20'"'00New RegistrantsPlace otOraduatton[J British coi~~;JiaCJ Other Canada1m Other C....:~~~~.__All RegistrantsI Excludes Non-Practising RPNs.

Those included in this report hadBritish Columbia addresses at the date of record. (See ROLLCALL95 for a detaileddefinition of this group.) Membership in the BCDNA does not necessarily implyemployment in the field. Data in tile tables are presented based on employmentaddress when the membership status is practising, when employment indietetics/nutrition is reported, and when employment address is available. In 1995,employment address was available for 94% of practising RDNs employed indietetics/nutrition. Home address is used for tile remainder, as well as for RDNswith practising status who are not employed in dietetics/nutrition, and for RDNswith non-practising status.December 1995.The British Columbia Dietitians' and Nutritionists' Association (BCDNA).The registered dietitians and nutritionists group is one of only two included in PLACE OFGRADUATION which is not a mandatory registration group. As a result, the information presented hereis representative only of those people trained as dietitians and nutritionists who choose to becomemembers of the BCDNA. Many employers may insist on membership with the BCDNA as a prerequisitefor employment, and the BCDNA is thought to have a fairly comprehensive membership, but there is noway to guarantee, as with groups where registration is mandatory, that tile entire workforce is representedin these tables.Figure I and Table I show the place of graduation for all registered dietitians and nutritionists.Figure 2 and Table 2 show this same information for new registrants (registrants to the BCDNA betweenDecember 1993 and December 1995) with practising memberships. Figure 1 indicates a large proportionof dietitians and nutritionists graduate from schools in other parts of Canada, and shows a significantdifference in employment location for graduates of different areas. Figure 2 shows similar distributions ofB.C graduates and foreign graduates in both the practising new registrants and the total group, bnt asomewhat smaller proportion of Other Canada graduates in the new registrants than seen in the totalgroup. Tables I and 2 show that B.C. graduates are 47.17% of the total registration group and 46.84% ofthe practising new registrants. The percentage of Other Canada graduates, however, is slightly higher inthe total group (44.92%) Ulan in the new registrants (41.77%). This is probably attributable to the largerproportions of graduates from the provinces of Quebec, Ontario, Manitoba and Alberta in the total groupcompared to the smaller proportions of graduates from those provinces in the new registrants.Table I illustrates the differences in location suggested by Figure I. B.C. graduates range frommaking up only 30.77% of the dietitian and nutritionist population in Capital to 45.85% of thatpopulation in Other B.C. and 50.97% in Vancouver and District. The paucity of B.C. graduates inCapital is made up for by Alberta (18.68%), Nova Scotia (13.19%) and Quebec (8.79%) graduates. Thesenumbers are all far higher than tile group totals for these provinces (10.80%, 5.40%, and 5.53%,respectively). The foreign component of the dietitian and nutritionist group is relatively small (6.85%),with a large portion coming from the U.S. (3.16%). Capital registers the highest proportion of foreignMembership in the BCDNA is voluntary, but registered members bave exclusive usc of the titles RegisteredDietitian, Registered Nutritionist, Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist and R.D.N.graduates (7.69%), and a disproportionatenumber of graduates from the Philippines (4.40% in Capitalcompared to 1.58%overall).Separate tables on practising membersof the BCDNA, practising memberswho reportedemploymentin dietetics/nutritionand non-practising BCDNAmembers were also produced this year but are notincluded. TIle first two tables are not included this year as the distributions were all within one or twopercentage points of those seen in Table I (all BCDNAmembers)with Ole exception of Nova Scotiagraduates located in Capital. Nova Scotiagraduatesare 13.19%of all BCDNA members located inCapital, but only 8.43% of the practising members in Capital and 7.41% of Ole practising members whoreported employment in dietetics/nutrition in Capital. The table on non-practising BCDNA members isalso not included because the small number of dietitians and nutritionists in the non-practisingregistrationcategory (only 90) makes extensivecomparisonsdifficult. The most noteworthydifferencesbetween the non-practising membershipand the total membership are that Other Canada graduates are44.92% of the total membership, but only 41.11% of Ole non-practisingmembership, while the foreigngraduates makeup 6.85% of the total membershipand 8.89% of the non-practisingmembership. Thesethree tables are available upon request.Table 3 presents the location of dietitians and nutritionists by health region and by place ofgraduation, with graduates from Ole provinceseast of Ontario aggregated into the category "OtherCanada", and foreign graduates aggregated into the category "Other Country". TI,e proportion of B.C.graduates in the total membership of the BCDNA is 47.17%, but Ole range in the individual healthregions is from 0.00% in Peace River-Liard to 71.43% in Cariboo. These two health regions, however,are two of three regions in the province WiOI fewer than ten dietitians and nutritionists total, so adifference of only one or two individuals largely influences the proportions in these regions. There are sixhealth regions where the population of dietitiansand nutritionists is made up entirely of Canadiangraduates: Upper Fraser Valley, Coast Garibaldi, Central Vancouver Island, Cariboo, North West andNorthern Interior.Table 4 uses the same format as Table 3, this time presenting mean years since graduation. Theprovince-wide totals show that B.C. graduateshave tne lowest mean years since graduation at 13.42,while those trained in other countries graduated,on average, 21.92 years ago. SaskatchewanandManitoba graduates have the second highest mean years since graduatiou, at 17.10. Provincial totals byhealth region indicate a fairly wide variation in mean years since graduation; looking only at healthregions with at least ten dietitians and nutritionists, the range is from 12.53 in South Okanagan­Similkameen to 18.64 in Central Vancouver Island.Table 5 looks at mean years since first registration with the BCDNA by health region and by place ofgraduation. Other Country graduates show the highest mean years since first registration at 10.58 years,and the lowest mean is found among Saskatchewan & Manitobagraduates (7.42 years). This is a muchtighter distribution than that seen in Ole mean years since graduation (Table 6). The range across thehealth regions, looking only at health regions with at least ten dietitians and nutritionists, is from 6.72years in North Okanagan to 11.96 years in North Shore. Only three regions have a mean years since firstregistration with Ole BCDNA that is greater than 10: North Shore (11.96 years), Capital Health (10.87years) and Northern Interior (10.43 years).A table showing mean age by health region and by place of graduation for dietitians and nutritionists isnot published as it does not offer additional information; this tables was produced,however, and isavailable upon request.9798____F=-igul'e 1Place of Graduation by HHRU Health Regionfor Dietitians and Nutritionists (BCDNA Members)'in British ColumbiaDecember 199570•]'C~0en 30~0t 200<100HURU Health Region~LI Va"I1COllVer & DistrictOCapital1m Other B.C."-----'British Columbia Other CanadaPlace of GraduationOther CountryI Includes Practising and Non-Practising member:'>.

Those inclnded in thisreport had British Columbia addresses at the date of record. (See ROLLCALL 95for a detailed definition of this group.) Members with practising status may offerpsychological services, but registration with the College does not necessarily implyemployment in the field. Members with non-practising status may not offerpsychological services to the general pnblic, but may be employed by suchinstitntions as School Boards or Universities. Data in the tables are presented basedon employment address when psychologists report employment in psychology andemployment address is available. In 1995, employment address was available for98% of psychologists employed in psychology. Home address is used for theremainder, as well as for psychologists not employed in psychology. Place ofgradnation for psychologists refers to the place where the highest degree wasobtained (i.e. if Master's and PhD degrees are completed at different universities,the University granting the PhD is nsed to record place of gradnation).December 1995.The College of Psychologists of British Colnmbia (CPBC).Figure I and Table I present location of psychologists by place of graduation. Table 2 presents thissame information for new registrants (registrants to the CPBC between December 1993 and December1995), and Figure 2 compares new registrants by place of gradnation with the total registrants. Figure Isuggests that graduates from different areas have a fairly even distribution across the province. Figure 2suggests some small differences in the proportional representation of graduates of different areas betweenthe new registrants and the total group, with the proportion of Other Canada and Other Country graduateshigher and that of B.C. graduates lower in the new registrant group.Tables I and 2 show that the proportion of B.C. graduates is much smaller in the new registrants thanin the total group (28.24% vs. 37.65%, respectively). Conversely, the percentage of Other Canadagraduates is much larger among the new registrants than in the overall group (40.00% vs. 33.21 %).Gradnates from Newfoundland, Ontario, Saskatchewan and Alberta all contribute to this difference asthey show higher proportions of graduates in the new registrants than in the total group (1.18% vs.0.36%, 17.65% vs. 14.75%,5.88% vs. 2.52% and 10.59% vs. 9.23%, respectively). Foreign graduatesfrom both the U.S. and Asia also appear in higher proportions in the new registrants' gronp compared tothe total group (24.71 % vs. 22.90% and 4.71 % vs. 0.48% respectively).Tables I and 2 show considerable variation when looking at the provincial distribution of graduates.Both Vancouver and District and Other B.C. have much smaller proportions of B.C. graduates in the newregistrants than in the total group (29.09% vs. 39.47% and 17.65% vs. 32.70%, respectively), while theCapital region shows similar proportions of B.C. graduates in both groups (38.46% of new registrants and36.36% of the total group). Other Canada graduates are located in Other B.C. in a much higherproportion in the new registrants than in the total group (52.94% vs, 37.11 %). Other Canada graduatesalso occur in higher proportions in the new registrants than in the total group in the other two locations inthe province but to a lesser degree (36.36% vs. 31.58% in Vancouver and District and 38.46% vs. 34.97%in Capital). Differences in the provincial distribution of graduates from the individual provinces and from1 The Psychologists Act, 1979 mandates registration with the College of Psychologists of British Columbia in orderto practise as a psychologist in B.C.foreign countries also exist, but the total number of new registrants (85) limits the ability to draw definiteconclusions.A table looking at psychologists who reported employment in psychology was produced, bnt is notprinted here as the distributions were quite similar to those seen in Table I. Most of the differencesbetween the total group and those who reported employment in psychology were less than I %, which isnot nnexpected given the relatively small size of this group (834 total). This table is available uponrequest.Table 3 presents location of psychologists by health region and by plaee of graduation, with graduatesfrom the provinces east of Ontario aggregated into the category "Other Canada", and foreign graduatesaggregated into the category "Other Country". R.C. graduates make up 37.37% of psychologists in theVancouver health region, almost identical to the provincial average for B.C. graduates (37.65%). Incontrast, B.C. graduates are 53.85% of psychologists in Bnrnaby, a neighbouring health region.Compared to Burnaby, Vancouver has a higher proportion of psychologists coming from Alberta,Saskatchewan & Manitoba, Ontario and Other Country, and a slightly lower percentage coming fromOther Canada. The small numbers in many of the cells in Table 3 make more extensive comparisonsdifficult. The same is true for the remainder of the tables (Tables 4 through 6).Table 4 nses the same format, this time presenting mean years since graduation. Looking just at theprovincial totals, R.C. graduates have the lowest mean years since graduation at 14.29, and Other Countrygraduates the highest at 19.74 years. The overall provincial average for years since graduation is 16.58years. TIle range in the individual health regions, looking only at health regions with at least tenpsychologists, from 13.20 years in Simon Fraser to 19.73 years in West Kootenay-Boundary. It should bekept in mind that mean years since graduation refers to graduation with the highest degree achieved.Table 5 looks at mean years since first registration in B.C. by health region and by place ofgraduation. Saskatchewan & Manitoba graduates show the lowest mean years since first registration, at9.65 years, and Other Canada graduates the highest at 13.03 years. Looking only at health regions with atleast ten psychologists, the range in the individual health regions is from 9.67 years in Richmond to 16.36years in West Kootenay-Boundary.Table 6 illustrates mean age of psychologists, again by health region and by place of graduation.Ontario and Saskatchewan & Manitoba graduates show the lowest mean ages, at 47.31 years and 47.65years respectively.

In 1995,employmentaddresswas availablefor 92% of full registrantMTsemployedin massagetherapy.

MTs with inactiveregistrant status are notincluded in the figuresor tables this year.2December1995.The Collegeof Massage Therapists of BritishColumbia(CMTBC).The numberof MTs with unknown place of graduation should be kept in mind when using all ofthese tables; 2.24% of the total group, 1.50% of the new registrants and 1.05% of thoseemployedinmassage therapyare unknown in termsof place of graduation. Figure I and Table I show the place ofgraduationfor "full registrant" MTs. Table 2 shows this same mformation for new registrants(registrantsto the APMPBC and/or the CMTBCbetween December 1993 and December1995)3 and Figure 2comparesnew registrantsby place of graduation with the total registration group. Figures I and 2 bothdemonstrate the relative lack of graduatesfrom outsideCanada. Figure 1 indicatesB.C. graduatesaremost likely to locate in Vancouverand District,whilegraduates from Other Canada are more likely tolocate in Capital. Figure 2 indicates that a growingpercentage of new registrants received their trainingin B.C.Table I indicatesB.C. graduatesare 60.83%of the totalgroupof MTs, and 34.26%are Ontariograduates, with a minimal number from other provinces in Canada. There are only nineteen MTregistrants to the CMTBC who are graduatesof foreign schools,representing2.03% of the total group.The new registrant table (Table 2), showsCanadiangraduates comingonly from B.C. and Ontario. B.C.graduates represent 73.00%of the new registranttotal and Ontariograduates23.50%. TIlenumber ofnew registrants (200) is also relativelyhigh given the numberof registrants in the total group (937).The distributionof MTs across the provinceshows that while 60.83% of the totalgroup are B.C.graduates, this proportion is 70.58% in Vancouver and District, probably at least in part due to thepresenceof one of the two trainingfacilities for MTs in B.C. in Vancouver. Among the new registrants,this percentageis even higher at 78.17%. In contrast, in Capital in Table I, only 41.80% are B.C.graduates, while48.36% in this area graduatedin Ontarioand 4.92% graduated in other countries. Newregistrants located in Capitalalso show a relativelylow representation of B.C. graduates(54.55%), thoughit should be noted there are only II new registrantslocatedin Capital.I The Health Professions Act, 1990 mandates registration with the CMTBC in order to practise as a MT in B.C.2 In previous years, inactive registrants were notrequired toregister eachyear, so thecountof theirnumbers is notnecessarily accurate.3 In December, 1994, the College of Massage Therapists of BC (CMfBC) replaced the Association ofPhysiotherapists and Massage Practitioners of Be (APMPBC) as the regulatory body for massage therapists.A separate table on fnll registrant MTs who reported employment in massage therapy was alsoproduced this year. This table is not included as it provided no additional information since thedistributions were all within one or two percentage points of those seen in Table 1. This table is availableupon request.Table 3 expands the information provided in Table I, disaggregating location into health regions;graduates from the provinces east of Ontario are aggregated into the category "Other Canada", and foreigngraduates are aggregated into the category "Other Country". Peace River, with five MTs, is the onlyhealth region composed entirely of B.C. graduates. The average proportion ofB.C. graduates in theindividual health regions is 60.83%. Looking only at health regions with more than ten MTs total, therange in proportion of B.C. graduates is from 33.33% in East Kootenay to 85.19% in Burnaby. Ontariograduates have the strongest representation in East Kootenay, with 66.67% of the MTs in that healthregion. In contrast, Ontario graduates are only 7.41% ofMTs in Burnaby.Table 4 uses the same format as Table 3, this time looking at mean years since graduation. Thistables shows a clear difference among MTs with different places of graduation; B.C.-trained MTsgraduated, on average, 4.19 years ago, while those trained in Ontario have a mean years since graduationof 9.70 years, and graduates from other counlries show a mean of 22.81 years. These discrepancies maybe due in part to the recent growth in the MT registration group, and also in part to the recent expansionof B.C. massage therapy training programs (see the ROLLCALL series for more information on both thesenumbers). The range in the mean in the individual health regions is from 3.74 years in Richmond to 9.14years in West Kootenay-Boundary. Tables on mean years since first registration and mean age were alsoproduced but are not presented here as they do not offer a great deal of additional information; the tablesare, however, available upon request.117118J?i~l.I:e."l _Place of Graduation by HHRU Health Regionfor Massage Therapists (Full Registrants)' in British ColnmbiaDecember 1995In-IUD Health RegionII] Vancouver & Districto Capital1m Other B.C.--------British Columbia Other Canada Other CountryPlace of GraduationI Excludes Inactive registrants and massage therapists whose place ofgraduation is unknown.Figure 2Type of Registrants by Place of Graduationfor Massage Therapists (Full Registrants)! in British ColumbiaDecember 1995807060c,§c""'C~ Place of Graduation40"o British Columbiaenc [J Other Canada5 30" _I!~~!~~!:~~~!x._•"0< 20New Registrants All RegistrantsI Excludes Inactive registrants and massage therapists whose place of graduation is unknown.----------------'Prepared by:Health Human Resources UnitUniversity of British ColumbiaTable 1Massage Therapists (Full Registrants)' in British Columbiaby Place of Graduation by HHRU Health RegionDecember 1995Vancouverand District Capital Other B.C.

Those included in this report had BritishColumbia addressesat the date of record. (See ROLLCALL95 for a detaileddefinition of this group.) OTs who register as provisional generally have met theeducationaland competencyrequirementsof membership, but have not completedthe national certificationexam. Registration with the BCSOT does not necessarilyimply employment in the field. Data in the tables are presented based onemploymentaddress when the membershipstatus is registered or provisional, whenemployment in occupationaltherapy is reported,and when employmentaddress isavailable. In 1995,employmentaddress was available for 93% of registered orprovisional OTs employedin occupational therapy, Home address is used for theremainder, as well as for OTs with registered or provisionalstatus who are notemployed in occupationaltherapy, and for OTs with non-practising membershipstatus.December 1995.The British ColumbiaSocietyof OccupationalTherapists (BCSOT).The number of occupational therapists (OTs) with unknownplace of graduationshould be kept inmind when using all of these tables; 1.21% of the total group are unknownin terms of place ofgraduation, and 3.03% of new registrants.The occupational therapist group is one of only two included in PLACE OF GRADUATION which is not amandatory registration group. As a result, the information presentedhere is representativeonly of thosepeople trained as OTs who choose to become membersof the BCSOT. Many employersmay insist onmembership with the BCSOT as a prerequisitefor employment, and the BCSOT is thought to have afairly comprehensive membership, but there is no way to guarantee, as with groups where registration ismandatory, that the entire workforce is represented in these tables.Figure I and Table I show the place of graduationfor allOTs registered with the BCSOT. Table 2shows this same information for new registrants (registrants to the BCSOT between December 1993 andDecember 1995) with registered or provisional status, and Figure 2 comparesnew registrants withregistered or provisional status by place of graduation with the total registrationgroup. Figure I suggestssome differences in the distribution of OTs in the province by place of graduation;graduates from B.e.are more likely to locate in Vancouver and District, while those graduating in other parts of Canada aremore likely to locate in Other B.C. or Capital. Figure 2 shows lower proportionsofB.e. and OtherCountry gradnates and a higher proportion of Other Canada graduates in the new registrant groupcompared to all registrants.Tables I and 2 help to describe these differences. The proportionof B.e. graduates among allregistrants is 37.39%, compared with 27.27% among the new registrants (registeredand provisionalmembers). Graduates from the other provinces show higher representationin the new registrants than inthe total membership. For example, Ontario graduates are 18.18%of the new registrants but only 13.99%of the total group, and Alberta graduatesare 11.36%of the new registrantscompared to 9.29% of the totalMembership in theBeSOT is voluntary, butregistered members haveexclusive useof the titlesRegisteredOccupational Therapist (B.C.) and Registered 01' (B.c.)group. Non-Canadian graduates are a slightly smaller percentage of the new registrants (23.48%) thanthey are in the total membership (26.30%). In 1995, there were no graduates from the U.S. among thenew registrants, although they account for the second largest proportionof foreign graduates in the totalgroup (3.62%). Graduates from Hong Kong account for the highest proportionof the foreign-trainednewregistrants at 7.58%, compared to only 2.41% in the overall BCSOT membership. United Kingdomgraduates account for the highest proportion of the foreign graduates in the total group (13.63%), but areonly 6.82% of the new registrants.Table I also shows some differences,as suggested in Figure I, regarding the location of OTs in theprovince. Capital is less likely to have B.C. graduates than either Other B.C. or Vancouver and District;B.C. graduates are 34.48% of OTs in Capital, but 36.05% of those in Other B.C. and 38.51% inVancouver and District. Capital is far more likely to have Ontario graduates (24.14%) than either OtherB.C. (12.88%) or Vancouver and District (12.77%). In contrast, Other B.C. is more likely to have Albertagraduates (16.74%) than either Capital (6.90%) or Vancouver and District (6.29%). The proportion ofnon-Canadian graduates ranges from 22.32% in Other B.C. to 22.99% in Capital and 28.68% inVancouver and District. Capital registers no OTs who are graduatesof schools in Asia, while thesegraduates make up 5.89% and 1.72% of OTs in Vancouver and District and Other B.C., respectively.Separate tables on registered and provisional members of the BCSOT, registeredand provisionalmembers of the BCSOT who reported employmentin occupational therapy, and non-practising BCSOTmembers were also produced this year. TIlefirst two tables are not inclnded this year as the distributionswere abnost all within one or two percentagepoints of those seen in Table 1. The table on non-practisingBCSOT members is also not included because,although it showed some differencesin compositionfromTable I, the small number of OTs in the non-practisingregistrationcategory (only 54) makes extensivecomparisons difficult. These three tablesare available upon request.Table 3 expands the informationprovided in Table I, disaggregating location into health regions;graduates from the provinces east of Ontario are aggregated into the category "Other Canada", and foreigngraduates are aggregated into the category "Other Country". B.C. graduatesare 37.39% of the totalBCSOT membership, but the proportion of B.C. graduates in individualhealth regions ranges from 0.00%in Peace River-Liard to 51.43% in Burnaby. TIlepercentagedistributionmay in some cases be misleadingfor OTs, as the total group number (829) is relatively small, and a fair number (276) are located inVancouver. There are five health regions that have fewer than ten OTs and another five with between tenand twenty. There are two health regions with 100%of OTs as graduating from Canadian schools; EastKootenay and Cariboo, with seven and five OTs, respectively.Table 4 uses the same format as Table 3, this time presenting mean years since graduation for OTs.B.C. graduates show the lowest mean, at 11.17 years, though Albertagraduates are not too much higher at11.43 years. Other Country graduateshave the highest mean years since graduation at 20.73. Looking atthe provineial totals, the overall mean years since graduation is 14.59. The individual health regions allfall fairly close to that mean, with the notable exception of Cariboo, where the mean is 6.80 years (thoughonly five OTs eontribute to this mean). North Island/MidCoast posts the highest mean years sincegraduation at 20.00 years.

Thoseincluded in this report had British Columbia addresses at the date of record. (SeeROLLCALL 95 for a detailed definition of this group.) Registration with theCPTBC does not necessarily imply employment in Utefield. Data in the tables arepresented based on employment address when the membership status is full orlimited, when employment in physical therapy is reported, and when employmentaddress is available, In 1995, employment address was available for 96% of full orlimited PTs employed in physical therapy. Home address is used for the remainder,as well as for registrant PTs who are not employed in physical therapy, and for PTswith inactive registration status.December 1995.The College of Physical Therapists of British Columbia (CPTBC).131The number of PTs with unknown place of graduation must be kept in mind when using all of thesetables; 1.47% of the total group are unknown in terms of place of grad nation, as are 5.13% of the newregistrants. Figure I and Table I show the place of graduation for all PTs. Table 2 shows this sameinformation for new registrants (registrants to the APMPBC and/or the CPTBC between December 1993and December 1995)2 with full or limited status, and Figure 2 compares new registrants by place ofgraduation with the total registration group. Figure I indicates that the majority of physical therapistsgraduate from programs outside B.C. and that those PTs who graduated in Other Canada are most likelyto be located in Capital, while foreign graduates are most likely to be located in Vancouver and District.Figure 2 shows a smaller proportion of B.C. and foreign graduates among the new registrants compared tothe total group, and a much larger proportion of Other Canada graduates among the new registrants.As Figure 2 indicated, Tables I and 3 show Uteproportion of B.C. graduates is lower in Utenewregistrants than in the total group (24.91 % vs, 27.59%), while Other Canada graduates account for alarger proportion of the new registrants than of the total group (45.05% vs. 33.78%). Within OtherCanada, the proportion of Manitoba graduates is lower in the new registrants than in the total group(1.83% vs. 4.45%), and the proportions of Ontario, Saskatchewan and Alberta graduates are higheramong the new registrants (16.85% vs. 11.96%,4.40% vs, 2.80% and 14.65% vs. 7.97%, respectively).Looking at location in the province, B.C. graduates only account for 19.48% of the total group and20.51 % of the new registrants in Capital, while in Other B.C. the proportion of B.C. graduates rises to28.99% of the total group and 25.84% of the new registrants. Alberta graduates, in comparison, rangefrom 5.45% in Vancouver and District to 14.61% in Capital in Table I (the total group) and from 7.59%in Vancouver and District to 33.33% in Capital in Table 3 (the new registrants).Foreign graduates account for a much larger portion of the total group than of the new registrants(37.17% vs. 24.91 %). Graduates from the U.K. and Hong Kong show Utelargest differences; graduatesfrom the U.K. acconnt for 20.85% of the total group, but only 6.23% of the new registrants. Graduatesfrom Hong Kong show an opposite trend, representing 1.24% of the total group but 3.66% of the newregistrants. Examining distributions of foreign graduates across the province shows that in both the totalgroup and the new registrants, Vancouver and District has the highest proportion of foreign-trained PTs1 The Health Professions Act, 1990 mandates registration with theCPTBCin order topractiseas a PT in B.C.2 In December, 1994,the College of Physical Therapists ofBC (CP113C) replaced the Association ofPhysiotherapists and Massage Practitioners ofBC (APMPBC) as the regnlatory body for PTs in B.C ..132(40.40% and 31.72% respectively). All of the Hong Kong graduates in both Tables 1 and 3 are located inVancouver and District. Capital and Other B.C. show some differences in foreign graduate composition,but also have very low numbers of foreign-graduated new registrants (four and eighteen respectively).Tables looking at only the full and limited registrant PTs and the full and limited registrant PTs whoreported employment in physical therapy were also produced this year but are not included. The first ofthese two tables is not included this year as the distributions were all within one or two percentage pointsof those seen in Table 1 (all registrants). The proportions in the table on full and limited registrant PTswho reported employment in physical therapy are also very similar to those in Table 1. The mostnoteworthy differences are that in Capital, the proportions of both B.C. and Alberta graduates are slightlylower in the table on full and limited registrant PTs who reported employment in physical therapy thanamong tile total gronp (17.73% vs. 19.48% and 13.30% vs. 14.61 %, respectively), and the provincialproportion of Other Country graduates is slightly higher among tile full and limited registrant PTs whoreported employment in physical therapy Ulan among the total group (38.80% vs. 37.17%). These tablesare available upon request.The limited registrant category offered by the CPTBC is used mostly by non-Canadian graduates untilapplication for registration is complete. A separate table is not included here because of the small numberofPTs in this registration category; in December 1995 the limited register held only 30 PTs. Of tile thirty,eleven were graduates of Canadian schools (nine from Ontario and two from B.C.). A table showing theinactive members of the CPTBC is also not included, as there are only 115 PTs with this registrationcategory. All tables mentioned but not published are available upon request.Table 3 disaggregates the information provided in Table 1 by health region, with graduates from theprovinces east of Ontario aggregated into the category "Other Canada", and foreign graduates aggregatedinto tile category "Other Country". The percentage of B.C. graduates in each health region ranges from14.53% in North Shore and 14.71% in East Kootenay up to 43.48% in Northern Interior. The percentageof Alberta graduates is only 7.97% of the total group, but reaches 20.59% in East Kootenay, which sharesa large border with Alberta. The proportions of foreign graduate PTs range from 26.47% in EastKootenay to 55.56% in NorUI Shore.Table 4 uses the same format as Table 3, this time presenting mean years since graduation. The totalrow shows that B.C. graduates, at 12.69 years, have the lowest mean years since graduation. Non­Canadian graduates have the highest mean, at 20.74 years. The range in the mean for B.C graduates intile individual health regions is from 8.33 years in West Kootenay-Boundary to 17.50 years in PeaceRiver-Liard (though this mean is based on only 4 physical therapists). Looking at the graduates of othercountries, Peace River-Liard presents with a mean years since graduation of 14.56 years compared to20.74 overall, the lowest mean in this column.Table 5 shows the mean years since first registration in B.C. for PTs. TIle relatively large number ofPTs with missing or invalid year of registration in B.C. (432 PTs) must be kept in mind when examiningthis table. The difference between the mean years since first registration in B.C. and the mean years sincegraduation (Table 4) may reflect time taken off between graduation and registration with the CPTBC, orwork experience obtained in another province or country. Whatever the reason, the numbers in the totalrow are all lower than the corresponding numbers in Table 4 by several years. Alberta graduates show thesmallest mean years since first registration in B.C. at 8.04, and Other Country graduates the largest at12.34, a range of only 4.3 years. Within the B.C. graduates, tile lowest mean years since first registrationis in Upper Fraser Valley at 4.36 and in West-Kootenay-Boundary at 4.77 years, well below the provincialaverage for B.C. graduates (10.15 years).Table 6 presents the mean age of PTs by place of graduation and by health region. As might beexpected from Table 4, B.C. graduates have the youngest mean age (37.71 years) and Other Countrygraduates the oldest (43.28 years). It is interesting to note the difference in mean years since graduation(Table 4) for B.C. and Other Country graduates is over eight years, while the difference in mean age isjust over five and a half years, suggesting that PTs graduating in other countries are slightly younger thanCanadian graduates when they finish their schooling.133134Figure 1'- _Place of Graduation by HHRU Health Regionfor Physical Therapists! in British ColumbiaDecember 19955045HI-IRU Health Region'0vancOl.>VOC & ));"'·;"1[JCapitalII Other B.C.._..__.•._--_...~-BritiRh Columbia Other Canada Other CountryPlace of GraduationI Includes Full, Limited and Inactive registrants.
