RA4!0.9.C2P6 610.69 C94-301-383-6 HEALTH HUMAN RESOURCES UNIT The Health Human Resources Unit (HHRU) was established as a demonstration project by the British Columbia Ministry of Health in 1973. Since that time, the Unit has continued to be funded on an ongoing basis (subject to annual review) as patt of the Centre for Health Services and Policy Research. 111e Unit undertakes a series of research studies that are relevant to health human resources management and to public policy decisions. 11ie HHRU's research agenda is determined through discussions of key cu!1'ent issues and available resources with the senior staff of the Ministry of Health. Va1ious health care provider groups patticipate indirectly, tl1rough on-going formal and informal communications with Ministiy of Healtl1 officials and witl1 HHRU researchers. Anninee Kazanjian is tl1e Associate Director and P1inci pal Investigator for tile Unit. 111ree types of research are included in tl1e Unit's research agenda. In conjunction witl1 professional licensing bodies or associations, the HHRU maintains tl1e Cooperative Health Human Resources Database. 111e Unit uses tliese data to produce regular status repo1ts that provide a basis for in-depth studies and for healtl1 human resources planning. The Unit unde1takes more detailed analyses bearing on pa1ticular healtl1 human resources policy issues and assesses tile impact of specific policy measures, using secondary analyses of data from tlie Cooperative Database, data from the ad1ninistrative databases maintained under tl1e HIDU, or primaiy data collected through surveys. 111e HHRU also conducts specific projects pe1taining to tl1e management of health human resources at local, regional and provincial levels. Copies of studies and reports produced by the HHRU are available at no charge.

The groups included in this report are the licensed or registered professions in the province for which updated data are available and place of graduation of members is known. In all cases, the total number of!icensed or registered professionals, as of tl1e date of record, is given. Dietitians and Nutritionists are now the only group presented in this volume for which registration is not mandatory, tl10ugh regulation exists in the form of exclusive use of statutory titles. Data presented in this repo1t should not be interpreted as indicative of immigration and/or migration patterns. PLACE OF GRADUATION provides information only about where education was obtained, not country or province 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 tl1e province. Location has been grouped into the broad categories "Vancouver and District", "Capital" and "Other B.C." to facilitate clear data presentation. Following is a list of British Columbia Health Authorities as they fall into tl1e tl1ree categories used in this edition of PI.ACE OF GRADUATION. Vancouver and District: South Fraser RHB Simon Fraser RHB Vancouver/Richmond RHB N01th Shore RHB Capital: Capital RHB Other B.C.: Nortl1 Okanagan RHB Okanagan Similkameen RHB Fraser Valley RHB Central Vancouver Island RHB Thompson RHB Nortl1ern Interior RHB East Kootenay CHSS Kootenay Boundary CHSS Coast Garibaldi CHSS Upper Island I Central Coast CHSS Cariboo CHSS North West CHSS Peace Liard CHSS Health Authorities (HAs) in British Columbia are now responsible for healtl1 human resources planning in their respective regions, tlms tllis edition of PLACE OF GRADUATION presents data by Health Authority (HA) ratl1er tlrnn by Health Region (HR) as previous editions of PLACE OF GRADUATION have done. The Healtl1 Autl1orities used in PLACE OF GRADUATION 99 include tl1e eleven Regional Health Boards and the seven Commmlity Health Services Societies. 111e boundaries of these Healtl1 Authorities are similar to tl1ose of tl1e Healtl1 Regions witl1 only two differences: tl1e healtl1 regions of Vancouver and Richmond are combined into tl1e Vancouver/Richmond Regional Health Board; and the healtl1 regions of Simon Fraser and Burnaby are combined into tl1e Simon Fraser Regional Health Board. A map of tl1e province's Healtl1 Authorities and a table showing the conversion between Local Health Areas, the Healtl1 Regions formerly used in PLACE OF GRADUATION and tl1e Healtl1 Autl1orities used in the edition is found in Appendix A. A table of population estimates for tl1e Health Authority can be found in Appendix B. PLACE OF GRADUATION includes tables showing the distribution of personnel by place of graduation for individual Health Authorities, and also included are tables showing mean years since graduation, and for some groups, mean years since registration in B.C. and mean age of persormel by place of graduation and health region. For these 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 the northern territories and the provinces east of Ontario, whereas in Figures 1 and 2 in each chapter Other Canada refers to the northern territories and all provinces other than B.C. Some tables seen in previous editions of PLACE OF GRADUATION have been excluded, when the additional information 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 employment address wherever employment address was available. Employment address was not available from some groups or for all members of other groups; particular percentages of home versus employment address are outlined in the "Definition:" section of each chapter. PROVINCIAL SUMMARY Figures 1 and 2 provide a graphic overview of place of graduation for the thirteen health professions included in PLACE OF GRADUATION. Figure 1 suggests that the majority of health professionals in B.C. was educated in this province, with the highest proportions of B.C. graduates to be found in Other B.C. It also suggests that non-Canadian graduates are more likely to locate in Vancouver and District than in other areas of the province. Figure 2 compares new registrants (registrants from approximately the last two years) to all registrants, in terms of broad category of place of graduation. This figure shows that the new registrants and all registrants have similar proportions of graduates from B.C., Other Canada and Other Country. Tables I and 2 offer a more detailed look at the data presented in Figures I and 2. Table 1 indicates that of all health personnel included in PLACE OF GRADUATION, 83.80% were educated in Canada and 15.26% outside Canada, compared to 84.25'!'0 and 14.82%, respectively, of the new registrants (Table 2). Among the Canadian graduates, there is a slightly higher proportion of B.C. graduates in t11e new registrant group compared to tl1e total group (58.31 % versus 53.49%, respectively). Slight geographic variations in the relative distribution of B.C. graduates exist, more emphasized for the total group than for new registrants. The proportion of B.C. graduates varies from 51.18% in Capital to 55.64% in Other B.C. for the total group, and from 56.01 % in Capital to 58.75% in Vancouver and District for t11e new registrants. The non-B.C. Canadian graduates also show geographic variations, with t11e new registrants showing the greater variation tltis time. The proportion of non-B.C. Canadian graduates varies from 26.77% in Vancouver and District to 37.25% in Capital for the total group, and from 20.82% in Vancouver and District to 36.91 % in Capital for the new registrants. Graduates from Ontario are more likely to be found in Capital than in either Vancouver and District or Ot11er B.C. in both the total registration group and the new registrants (13.36% in Capital versus 9.41 % in Vancouver and District and 9.40% in Other B.C. for the total group, and 12.45% in Capital versus 8.44% in Vancouver and District and 9.45% in Other B.C. for the new registrants). Alberta graduates are much more likely to be found in eit11er Capital or Otl1er B.C. than in Vancouver and District (10.57% in Other B.C. versus 10.14% in Capital and 5.95% in Vancouver and District for the total group, and 8.79% in Other B.C. versus 10.52% in Capital and 4.22% in Vancouver and District for the new registrants). Overall, the vii viii relative distribution of non-B.C. Canadian graduates tend to be slightly lower among the new registrants than among the total group. Graduates from the U.S., the U.K., the Philippines and South Africa account for most of the foreign graduates (2.13% of all graduates and 2.42% of new registrants are from the U.S., 5.15% of all graduates and 1.54% of new registrants are from the U.K., 2.05% of all graduates and 3.64% of new registrants are from the Philippines and 0.84% of all graduates and 1.40% of new registrants are from South Africa). The non-Canadian graduates are far more likely to be found in Vancouver and District than in eitl1er Capital or Other B.C. in both the total registration group and the new registrants (19.75% in Vancouver and District versus 10.72% in Capital and 10.07% in Other B.C. for the total group, and 19.42% in Vancouver and District versus 6.44% in Capital and 9.57% in Otl1er B.C. for the new registrants). Table 3 presents the information in Table 1 by Health Authority and by place of graduation, with foreign graduates aggregated into one category. As mentioned previously, the "Other Canada" category in this table, and all similarly aggregated tables in t11e chapters, refers to all provinces and territories other tlian British Columbia, Albe1ta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario (which are shown separately in t11e tables). The column heading "N" is the number of health professionals that comprise each group. B.C. graduates represent just over half of all registrants to these health professions (53.49%). However, t11ere is a fairly large variation, by Health Authority, in percentage of B.C. graduates, ranging from 39.62% in Peace Liard to 65.62% in Cariboo. Peace Liard and East Kootenay show the highest representation of Alberta graduates (19.29% and 18.59%, respectively), which may be because t11ese two Health Authorities share long borders with Albe1ta. Non-Canadian graduates constitute more than 10% of health professionals in all Health Authorities except four located in t11e south-central and south-east areas of the province; North Okanagan (8.34% ), Okanagan Similkameen (7.99%), Thompson (7.44%) and East Kootenay (9.68%). In contrast, 21.65% of health personnel located in Vancouver/Richmond are graduates of other countries. Table 4 uses the same format as Table 3, but presents only the new registrant population. When looking across the provincial totals, most differences between Table 3 and Table 4 are relatively small (less than two percentage points), with tl1e exception ofB.C. graduates (53.49% of all registrants compared to 58.31 % of new registrants) showing relative gains in t11e current year. Among Health Authorities, percentage distributions can be quite different. As was tl1e case in Table 3, the propo1tion of B.C. graduates is lowest in Peace Liard (33.33%), but highest in Thompson (70.43%) for t11e new registrants. Kootenay Boundary shows t11e highest representation of Albe1ta graduates among the new registrants at 14. 71 %, well above the provincial total of 6.3 8%. T11e percentage of Other Country graduates in the Health Authorities has a wider variation by Health Authority among the new registrants than tliat seen in the total group (Table 3). Non-Canadian graduates make up only 4.18% of tl1e new registrants in Okanagan Similkameen (13 out of 311), but 25.64% of new registrants in the North Shore (60 of 234). Table 5 provides an historical perspective, showing the percentage of B.C. graduates from 1989 to 1999 in each health personnel group. Most groups show an increase in the propo1tion of B.C. graduates, with massage therapists showing by far the largest jump, from 40.76% in 1989 to 71.63% in 1999. Also showing a general upward trend in percentage of B.C. graduates from 1989 to 1999 in ascending order are physical tl1erapists (25.63% to 26.05% ), physicians (24.11 % to 27.07% ), dentists (33.39% to 37.43%), registered nurses (49.43% to 53.79%), dental hygienists (42.67% to 49.00%) and occupational therapists (31.32% to 39.03% ). Pharmacists are the only group showing an overall downward trend in t11e propo1tion of B.C. graduates from 79.74% in 1989 to 75.27% in 1999. Registered psychiatric nurses began the decade with a downward pattern, from 66.15% B.C. graduates in 1989 to 61.08% in 1993, but have since shown an upward trend to 64.25% in 1999. Certified dental assistants, licensed practical nurses and dietitians & nutritionists show relatively constant proportions of B.C. graduates from 1989 (1991 for dietitians & nutritionists) to 1999 (91.96% to 91.43%, 67.99% to 67.35% and 47.73% to 47.65'fo, respectively). Figure 3 is a companion to Table 5, presenting the percentage distribution by place of graduation for each of the groups in 1999. 111e figure has been arranged from lowest (physical therapists) to highest (certified dental assistants) propo1tion of B.C. graduates. Physicians had in recent years (1993, 1995 and 1997) shown the lowest proportion of B.C. graduates. ix x GO 50 .§ 40 = ~ ~ 30 • " s~ 20 -• "' IO 0 Figure 1 Place of Graduation by HHRU Health Region for Selected Health Personnel1 in British Columbia 1999 British Coluinbia OtJ1er Canada Other Country Place of c;raduation 1 Excludes health personnel whose place of graduation is unknow1i.

I (See ROLLCALL 99 for a detailed definition of this group.) Those included in this report had British Columbia addresses at the date of record. Registration with the CDS BC does not necessarily imply employment as a dental assistant. Data presented in the tables are based on home address for the majority of certified dental assistants. Precise percentages of home versns employment or other address are not known. June 2000. College of Dental Surgeons of British Columbia (CDSBC). Figure 1 and Table 1 show the location of certified dental assistants (CDAs) by place of graduation. Table 2 presents this same information for new registrants (registrants to the CDS BC between Deceniber 1997 and June 2000), and Figure 2 compares new registrants by place of graduation with the total registration group. Figure 1 indicates that the vast majority of CD As are trained in British Columbia. Figure 2 shows a fairly equal representation of graduates from B.C., Other Canada and Other Country among the new registrants compared to the total gronp. Tables 1and2 show the CDAs by specific province or country of graduation; 91.43% of the total registration group graduated in B.C., 4.60% in the remainder of Canada, and 3.95% in other countries. The new registrants show a similar distribution, with B.C. graduates making up 92.08%, other Canadian graduates 4.31 % and graduates from other countries 3.61 %. In both Table 1 and Table 2, graduates from the U.S. account for the majority of foreign graduates (3.19% and 2.22% respectively). Most 11011-B.C. Canadian graduates come from the prairie provinces, and most of those from Alberta, although Alberta's advantage decreases when looking only at the new registrants (3.36% of the total group versns 1.94% of new registrants). Looking across the three broad areas of the province, there are some differences in distribution by place of graduation. The largest proportion of B.C. graduates in the total group occurs in Capital (95.33%, compared to 92.10% in Other B.C. and 89.92% in Vancouver and District), while the largest proportion of B.C. graduates in the new registrants occurs in Other B.C. (94.89%, compared to 93.06% in Capital and 88.89% in Vancouver and District). In Vancouver and District, non-Canadian graduates are 6.12 % of the total gronp and 7 .30% of the new registrants. In contrast, non-Canadian graduates are only 0.22% of the total group and 0.00% of the new registrants in Capital, and 2.60% of the total group and 0.90% of the new registrants in Other B.C. Table 3 expands the information provided in Tables 1 and 2, disaggregating location into Health Authorities; graduates from the Northwest Territories and provinces east of Ontario are aggregated into the category "Other Canada", and foreign graduates are aggregated into the category "Other Country" in this table. Representation of B.C.-gradnated CD As in the Health Authorities ranges from highs of over 98% in Cariboo (98. 75%) to lows of 85% in North Okanagan (85.71 % ). 11re Cariboo region has no 1 The Dentists Act, R.S.B.

CDAs who graduated from other countries. In comparison, Fraser Valley has the highest percentage of CDA graduates from other countries (9.38%), well above the provincial average at 3.95%. Table 4 uses the same format as in Table 3, bnt this time presenting the average number of years since graduation for CDAs. Other Canada graduates have the highest average years since graduation at 15.57 years, though province-wide totals indicate that there are only seven CD As contributing to this mean; Other Country graduates show the lowest mean at 10.17 years, followed by B.C. graduates at 10.90 years. TI1e B.C. graduates show a small amount of variation within the individual Health Authorities in mean years since graduation, where the range is from 8.66 years in East Kootenay to 12.80 years in Upper Island/Central Coast. There is slightly less variation when looking at the "Total" column, where the range is from 9.27 years in Fraser Valley to 12.73 years in Upper Island/Central Coast.

(See ROLLCALL 99 for a detailed definition of this group.) Limited registrants (formerly Conditionally licensed) hygienists are qualified to practise as dental hygienists, except that they are not authorised to administer local anaesthesia. Residential Care registrants meet all requirements for Full registration plus additional qualifications. Residential Care registration allows hygienists working in approved residential or long term care facilities to practice without a prior dentist examination of clients. Registration with the CD HBC does not necessarily imply employment in dental hygiene. Data presented in the tables are based on home address for the majority of dental hygienists. Precise percentages of home versus employment or other address are not known. Date of Record: December 1999. Source of Data: College of Dental Hygienists of British Columbia (CDHBC). Discussion: Figure 1 illustrates the location of dental hygienists in B.C. by place of graduation for all hygienists. Table 1 shows the location of dental hygienists in B.C. by place of graduation for Full, Limited and Residential Care registrants of the CD HBC. Table 2 shows this same information for new registrants (registrants to the CD HBC between December 1997 and December 1999), and Figure 2 compares new registrants by place of graduation with the total (Full, Limited and Residential Care) registered group. Figure 1 shows that the majority of hygienists is trained in either British Columbia or Other Canada. Figure 2 shows that among the new registrants, a much larger propo1tion of hygienists are B.C. graduates than are Other Canada graduates (58.71 % versus 35.32%). Among the total registered group, however, the propo1tions of B.C. graduates and Other Canada graduates are closer ( 48.98% versus 42.14%). The propo1tion of Other Country graduates in both the new registrant group and the total registered group is less than 10% (5.97% and 8.88%, respectively), and U.S. graduates account for the vast majority of foreign-trained dental hygienists; 131 of 152 foreign-trained hygienists in the total group and 9 of 12 foreign-trained hygienists in the new registrant group. The distribution of Canadian-trained and foreign-trained dental hygienists across the three broad areas of tl1e province shows qnite a bit of variance in botl1 Table 1 and Table 2. Table 1 indicates that graduates of Albe1ta programs are more likely to locate in Otl1er B.C. than in Capital or Vancouver and District: 13.31 % of dental hygienists in Other B.C. are graduates of Alberta programs, compared to I The llealth Professions Act, R.S'.B. C. 1996, C'hapter J 83 tnandates registration with the College of Dental Hygienists of British Colu1nbia (CDHBC) in order to practise as a dental hygienist in B.C. 2 TI1e CJ)HBC has 1nade several cluu1ges to their registration categories since PLACE OF GRAD[JATION 97: the CDHBC has dropped the use of the tenn 'licence' in their registration categories; the registration category of Conditional has been replaced by the category of Liinited; the registration category of H.esidential Care is new in 1999 for dental hygienists; <u1d the Co1rununity Health (fo1merly dental public health hygienists) registration category has been elitninated <lll<l "rolled" into the Full registration category. 7.67% in Vancouver and District and 7.41 % in Capital. In contrast, graduates of Quebec programs account for 6.59% of dental hygienists in Vancouver and District, but only 2.31 % in Capital and 2.57% in Other B.C. Graduates of B.C. programs are more likely to locate in Capital (56.94%) than in Vancouver and District (46.52%) or Other B.C. (49.47%). U.S. graduates account for 8.62% of dental hygienists in Other B.C. and 7.91 % in Vancouver and District, but only 3.70% in Capital. 111e new registrant table (Table 2) indicates that B.C. graduates are far more likely to locate in Capital (81.48%) than in Other B.C. (66.20%) or Vancouver and District (47.57%). Graduates from Quebec represent 5.47% of the new registrant group, but 9.71 % of new registrants in Vancouver and District. Comparisons between tl1e two tables should be made with caution, as the numbers in the new registrant table are relatively small. A table showing all hygienists registered with the CD HBC was also produced. However, the differences between it and Table 1 were all Jess than one percent so the table has not been included. A separate table for only Non-Practising hygienists is also not included because of the small number of dental hygienists in this registration category; in December 1999 the non-practising category included only 32 hygienists. These tables are available upon request. Table 3 expands the information provided in Table 1, disaggregating location into Health Authorities; graduates from tl1e provinces east of Ontario are aggregated into the category "Otl1er Canada", and foreign graduates are aggregated into the category "Otl1er Country". 111e small numbers in some of the Health Autl1orities must be kept in mind when making comparisons. B.C. graduates comprise 49.00% of the total population of dental hygienists, but make up far higher propo1tions than tl"us in the Northern Interior (82.86%) and Cariboo (82.14%) Health Authorities. East Kootenay shows the smallest propo1tion of B.C. graduates, witl1 only seven of the twenty-nine dental hygienists located there having trained in B.C. Graduates from otl1er countries are 9.01 % of the provincial total, but range in representation in the Health Authorities from 20.69% in East Kootenay to 0.00% in Cariboo. Table 4 uses tl1is same format, this time showing mean years since graduation. Total figures show a higher mean years since graduation for dental hygienists graduating in other countries tlian those graduating in Canada. Among Canadian graduates, the lowest mean years since graduation is for those trained in B.C. (9.57 years) followed by those trained in Other Canada (9.72 years). The highest mean years since graduation is found for Albe1ta graduates (16.67 years), which suggests fuat dental hygienists in B.C. who are graduates of Albe1ta institutions tend to be older or that migration of dental hygienists from Alberta to B.C. has declined in recent years. In the Simon Fraser region, tl1e mean years since graduation fall below the provincial means for all Canadian places of graduation. In contrast, in the North Shore region, the mean years since graduation from institutions in B.C., Alberta, Saskatchewan & Manitoba and Ontario are well above tl1e provincial averages. Data for dental hygienists on mean years since first registration in B.C. were not available this year, so no table was produced showing mean years since first registration in B.C. by Health Authority and by place of graduation. Table 5 presents mean age by Health Autl10rity and by place of graduation. Among Canadian graduates, Albe1ta graduates have the highest mean age, at 40.62 years, and Other Canada graduates the lowest at 34.96 years. B.C. graduates, with an average age of 36.29 years, again show a fairly wide difference among the Health Authorities, from 31.25 years in Peace Liard to 40.87 years in Coast Garibaldi. In the province as a whole, the North West and Peace Liard Healtl1 Regions show the youngest average age for dental hygienists (33.09 and 33.56 years, respectively) and Coast Garibaldi has the oldest average age (41.59 years). 11 12 60 50 = .2 40 ] ·c :\<i A 30 • " •~ 20 • • "' 10 0 Figure 1 Place of Graduation by HHRU Health Region for Dental Hygienists1 in British Columbia December 1999 B1itish Colun1bia Oll1er Canada Place of Graduation ------·-----Other Country 1 Includes hygienists with Pull, Liniited, Residential Care and Non-Practising registrations.

Those included in this report had British Columbia addresses at the date of record, (See ROLLC'ALL 99 for a detailed definition of this group.) Licensed dentists are those who may legally practice in B.C. Temporary status dentists may not perform dental services for a fee (temporary status may be held for up to one year for the purpose of lecturing or other educational activities in the province). Non-practising status encompasses dentists who are fully registered with the CDS BC but do not have a license to practice in this province. Data presented in the tables are based on employment address for the majority of dentists. Precise percentages of home versus employment or other address are not known. Date of Record: June 2000. Source of Data: College of Dental Surgeons of British Columbia (CDS BC). Discussion: Figure 1 and Table 1 present employment location for licensed dentists by place of graduation. Table 2 presents th.is same information for new registrants (registrants to the CDSBC between January 1998 and June 2000), and Figure 2 compares new registrant licensed dentists by place of graduation with the total licensed group. Figure 1 suggests there are fewer licensed dentists who have graduated in B.C. than from other provinces in Canada. It also shows variation of location within the province by place of graduation, with those in the Capital more likely to be graduates of Other Canada than of B.C. or other countries. Figure 2 shows smaller propmtions of both B.C. graduates and Other Canada graduates among the new registrant group compared to the total registrant group, but a much larger proportion of foreign graduates among the new registrant group. In Tables 1 and 2, B.C. graduates acconnt for 38.50% of the total licensed group, but only 29.67% of the new registrants, while Other Canada graduates account for 40.69% and 24.00% respectively. Fmther differences can be seen when looking at these distributions across the three broad areas of the province. In Vancouver and District, B.C. graduates make up 41.14% of the total licensed group, compared to 36.50% in Other B.C. and only 26.58% in Capital. In comparison, the proportion of B.C. graduates in the new registrant group is only 26.46% in Vancouver and District, 36.21 % in Other B.C. and 47.37% in Capital. Graduates from Albe1ta slightly out number graduates from B.C. in the Capital region for the total licensed group (60 versus 59), while the reverse is true in Vancouver and District and Other B.C. Graduates from Ontario also comprise a large propo1tion of the licensed dentists in Capital (13.96%) compared to Vancouver and District (7.49%) and Other B.C. (6.98% ). Foreign graduates represent over twice the proportion of new registrants than all licensed dentists ( 46.33% and 20.81 % respectively). Of the foreign graduates, U.S. graduates represent 6.89% of the total licensed group and 9.33% of the new registrants, while graduates from Iran are only 1.10% of the total licensed group but 8.33% of new registrants and graduates from the Philippines are only 1.53% of the total licensed group but 6.33% of new registrants. As with B.C. and Other Canada graduates, foreign graduates show major differences when looking at distributions across areas of the province. 1 111e /)enlists Acr, R.S.B. C. 1996, C'hapter 94 1nandates registration and Iicensure with the College of Dental Surgeons of British Colu1nbia (CDSBC) in order to practise as a dentist in B.C. Vancouver and District is the location for 125 out of the 139 non-Canadian graduate new registrants, compared to 374 out of 532 non-Canadian graduates in the total licensed group. In comparison, all new registrants in the Capital region are Canadian graduates. Graduates from Iran and the Philippines tend to locate in Vancouver and District (26 out of 28 and 37 out of 39, respectively, in the total licensed group, and 24 out of 25 and 19 out of 19, respectively, in the new registrant group). Graduates of the United Kingdom account for a majority of the foreign trained licensed dentists in the Capital region (13 out of 23). Tables showing licensed and temporary dentists registered with the CDS BC and showing all dentists registered with the CDS BC were also produced. The differences between these tables and Table 1 were small, so the tables have not been included. T11ese tables are available upon request. Table 3 presents the information in Table 1 for all dentists by Health Authority and by place of graduation; graduates from the provinces east of Ontario are aggregated into the category "Other Canada", and foreign graduates are aggregated into the category "Other Country". B.C. graduates make up 37.43% of the total population of dentists, but the range in individual health regions is from 22.22% in Okanagan Similkameen to 50.87% in South Fraser. The range in proportion of Alberta graduates is similarly wide, from 2.78% in Coast Garibaldi to 29.31 % in North Okanagan. Table 4 uses this same format, this time presenting mean years since graduation. B.C. graduates show the lowest mean, at 13.52 years, followed by Saskatchewan and Manitoba graduates at 17.32 years. Graduates from Alberta record the highest mean years since graduation (22.53). Provincial-wide totals show that the Peace Liard Health Region has the lowest mean years since graduation at 15.15 years, and Coast Garibaldi the highest at 22.31 years. Table 5 reports mean years since first registration with the CDS BC. Non-Canadian graduates show the lowest mean at 12.40 years, followed by B.C. graduates at 13.44 years, while Alberta graduates show the highest mean at 20.64 years. Non-Canadian graduates show the largest difference between averages in Tables 4 and 5 (18.97 versus 12.40 years respectively), which suggests these graduates may be coming to B.C. with a fair amount of work experience, tlrough years of experience can not be assumed directly from years since graduation. Table 6 displays mean age for dentists, again by Healtl1 Autl1ority and by place of graduation.

(See ROLLCALL 99 for a detailed definition of this group.) Registration with the CPBC does not necessarily imply employment in the field. 1l1e data in the tables are presented based on employment address when pharmacists report employment in pharmacy. Employment address was available for 99.7% of pharmacists employed in pharmacy; home address was used for the remainder and for pharmacists not employed in pharmacy. Date of Record: April 2000. Source of Data: College of Pharmacists of British Columbia (CPBC). Discussion: Figure 1 and Table 1 present location of pharmacists by place of graduation. Table 2 presents this same information for new registrants (registrants to the CPBC between April 1998 and April 2000), and Figure 2 compares new registrants by place of graduation with the total registration group. Figure 1 indicates that the majority of pharmacists in B.C. graduated in this province. Figure 2 suggests that the new registrants have a smaller propo1tion of B.C. graduates and a larger propo1tion of gradnates from Other Canada than the total group. Looking at Tables 1 and 2, the percentage of B.C. graduates is shown as 75.27% of the whole group, but only 69.72% of tl1e new registrants. The proportion of Other Canada graduates is only 16.02% of the whole group, but increases to 21.45% of the new registrants. The largest differences seen in the propo1tions of Otl1er Canada graduates between the two tables occur witl1 Ontario and Saskatchewan graduates, who are 1.63% and 6.05% respectively oftl1e overall group and 3.79% and 8.20% respectively of tl1e new registrants. The propo1tions of foreign graduates are similar in tl1e total registration group and tl1e new registrant group (6.85% and 6.94%, respectively). Tables 1 and 2 show larger differences when comparing distributions across the three broadly defined locations in the province. However, the small numbers in some of the cells in Table 2 should be considered when drawing conclusions from these differences. The percentage of B.C. graduates in Vancouver and District in Table 1 is 78.71 %, compared to 75.58% on Table 2, while in Capital, the percentage of B.C. graduates is 65.72% in Table 1 and 40.74% in Table 2. In Vancouver and District, the propo1tion of Other Canada graduates among tl1e new registrants is slightly higher than in the overall group (12.21 % vs. 10.88%), while in Capital and Other B.C., tl1e differences in tl1e prop01tions of Other Canada graduates between tl1e new registrants and tl1e overall group are much greater (51.85% vs. 25.09% in Capital, and 27.96% vs. 21.96% in Other B.C.). Saskatchewan graduates are much more likely to locate in eitl1er Capital or Otl1er B.C. than in Vancouver & District, and this trend is even more evident in the new registrant group (29.63% in Capital and 15.25% in Other B.C. versus 0.00% in Vancouver & District) than in tl1e total group (12.01 % in Capital and 10.64% in Other B.C. versus 2.25% in Vancouver & District). Table 2 shows that graduates from Albe1ta are also far more likely to locate in the Capital region (18.52'fo versus 5.93% in Other B.C. and 4.65% in Vancouver & District). 1 The Phannacists, Phannacy Operations & Drug .S'cheduling Act, R.S.B.C'. 1996, Chapter 363 1ntu1dates registration with the College of Phannacists of British Colutnbia (CPBC) in order to practise as a pluu1nacist in B.C. A separate table about pharmacists who repo1ted employment in pharmacy was also produced this year, but is not included as the distributions were all within two percentage points of those seen in Table I. 'TI1is table is available upon request. Table 3 displays the information from Table I for pharmacists by Health Authority and by place of graduation, with graduates from the provinces east of Ontario aggregated into the single category "Other Canada", and foreign graduates aggregated into the single category "Other Country''. The provincial average for the propo1tion of B.C. graduates in the health regions is 75.27%, but the range in the individual health regions goes from 54.84% in Peace Liard to 84.62% in Coast Garibaldi. East Kootenay and Kootenay Boundary have high percentages of Alberta graduates (14.29% in East Kootenay and 15.38% in Kootenay Boundary versus the provincial average of 5.02%), while Peace Liard has the highest percentage of Manitoba and Saskatchewan graduates (25.81 % versus provincial average of 8. 14% ). The Fraser Valley region shows the highest percentage of Other Country graduates at 10.88%, compared to a provincial average of 6.85%. Table 4 uses this same format, presenting mean years since graduation. Other Canada graduates show the lowest mean years since graduation at 13.51 years, while Other Country graduates have the highest at 19.37 years. Pharmacists in Peace Liard have a mean years since graduation that is somewhat higher than the provincial average for B.C. graduates (17. 88 years versus 14.28 years for the province). Meanwhile, the Okanagan Similkameen region shows a higher than provincial average years since graduation in all columns where this is calculated and has the highest mean years since graduation in the total column at 17.92 years, compared to the Cariboo region at 13.02 years (the lowest). Table 5 presents mean years since first registration in B.C., again by Health Authority and by place of graduation. In this table, it is again the graduates from Other Canada (9.14 years) who show the lowest average. B.C. graduates have been registered longest with the College of Pharmacists of B.C., for an average of 14.96 years. The discrepancy between mean years since graduation and mean years since first registration for many pharmacists suggests graduates from other areas come to B.C. only after some amount of work experience, though the quantity of experience can not be ascertained; some time between graduation and registration in B.C. may be spent unemployed or employed in other fields. Table 6 looks at pharmacists' mean age by Health Authority and by place of graduation. There is almost a six year variation in mean age for pharmacists based on place of graduation, with graduates from Other Canada showing the lowest mean age at 37.57 years, and Other Country graduates showing the oldest mean age at 43.54 years. B.C. graduates have a mean age of 39.19 years. 'TI1e provincial mean age for pharmacists is 39.93 years, with a range from 37.90 years in the Northern Interior to 42.66 years in Okanagan Similkameen. 31 32 80 70 .§ 60 ~ 50 ~ 40 • M i 30 • .. 20 IO 0 Figure 1 Place of Graduation by HHRU Health Region for Pharmacists1 in British Columbia April 2000 B1itish Cohunbia Other Canada Place of' (;raduation Other Country 1 Excludes phannacists whose place of graduation is 11nknowii. 80 70 60 = .s ~ 50 ~ 40 • M • = 30 ~ " •"' 20 IO 0 Figure 2 Type of Registrants by Place of Graduation for Pharmacists1 in British Columbia April 2000 New Registrants All Registrants 1 Excludes phannacists whose place of graduation is unknown.

Prepared by: Health Hunmn Resources Unit Centre for Health Services and Policy Research The University of British Colun1bia 40 Definition: Date of Record: Source: Discussion: Physicians Directory Active physicians are registered by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of British Columbia (CPSBC).1 TI1ose included in this report were licensed to practise medicine and had British Columbia addresses at the date of record. (See ROLLCALL 99 for a detailed definition of this group.) Directory Active includes physicians who are on the full, special or temporary registers (temporary includes those who are in postgraduate training or who have a temporary licence to practise). Postgraduate physicians are Directory Active, either on the full or temporary registers, and according to CPS BC records, involved in postgraduate work. Non-postgraduate physicians are Directory Active physicians who, according to CPS BC records, are not involved in postgraduate work. Non-postgraduate physicians are, in some tables, further divided into generalists and specialists; generalists are General Practice and Family Practice physicians, and specialists encompass all other specialty categories. Data presented in the tables are based on employment address for the majority of physicians. Precise percentages of home versus employment or other address are not known. September 1999. College of Physicians and Surgeons of British Columbia (CPS BC). Figure I is a graphic presentation of statistics from Tables I (non-postgraduate physicians) and 2 (postgraduate physicians) combined, showing present employment location for all Directory Active physicians by place of graduation. Table 3 presents the place of graduation for new registrants (registrants to the CPSBC between September 1997 and September 1999) with non-postgraduate status, and Figure 2 compares non-postgraduate new registrants by place of graduation with the total 11011-postgraduate registration group. Figure I shows a predominance of graduates from other Canadian provinces registered with the CPS BC. Figure 2 shows that B.C. graduates account for a much smaller percentage of the new registrants than of the total registrants, and that Other Canada graduates and foreign graduates make up a larger percentage of the new registrants than of the total registrants. Tables I and 2 divide the Directory Active physician total into non-postgraduate (Table I) and postgraduate (Table 2). The proportion of B.C. graduates is lower for non-postgraduate physicians than for postgraduate physicians (26.56% versus 33.00% ), while the propmtion of Other Canada graduates is higher for non-postgraduate physicians than for postgraduate physicians ( 45.95% versus 38.41 %). Keeping in mind that the numbers of postgraduate physicians (Table 2) are relatively small in Capital and Other B.C. and that comparisons should be made with caution, it is within these two areas of the province that the largest differences occur when looking at place of graduation by location in the province. In Capital, graduates from B.C. make up only 21.30% of the non-postgraduate physician population but 37.93% of the postgraduate. In Other B.C., graduates from B.C. (24.78% non­postgraduate versus 39.29% postgraduate), Ontario (15.04% non-postgraduate versus 21.43% postgraduate) and Albe1ta (14.85% non-postgraduate versus 21.43% postgraduate) account for the The Medical Practitioners Act, R.S.B.C. 1996, C'hapter 285 1nandates registration with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of British Colurnbia (CPSBC) in order to practise as a physician in B.C. major differences between Tables 1 and 2. In Vancouver and District, the propo1tions of B.C. graduates in Tables 1 and 2 are much closer at 28.62% of the non-postgraduate physicians and 32.51 % of the postgraduates. The range in percentage of foreign graduates among non-postgraduate physicians is from 24.00% in Capital to 28.62% in Other B.C. The small number of foreign graduates among postgraduate physicians outside Vancouver and District (6 of201) precludes any detailed comparisons by location in the province. Within the foreign graduates group in Vancouver and District, however, there are some differences worth noting. European graduates represent 13.49% of the non-postgraduate physician population, but 8. 82 % of the postgraduate. In contrast, Asian graduates comprise 6.24% of the non­postgraduate group but 15.17% of the postgraduates, with graduates from Saudi Arabia absent from the non-postgraduate group entirely but making up 7.74% of the postgraduate group. Table 3 shows new registrants to the CPS BC with non-postgraduate status. Since it only outlines non-postgraduates, it will be compared with Table 1, the total group of non-postgraduate physicians. B.C. graduates represent a smaller proportion of non-postgraduate new registrants compared to tlte total group (8.56% versus 26.56% ). Graduates from t11e other provinces in Canada show higher percentages among the new registrants than among the total group, with Ontario and Alberta graduates showing tl1e greatest differences (23.48% versus 16.44%, and 14.09% versus 12.52% respectively). Among t11e non-Canadian graduates, there are two large differences tliat should be noted; European graduates account for 10.22% of the non-postgraduate new registrants (2.21 % from the U.K.), but 14.17% of tl1e total non-postgradnate group (9. 81 % from the U.K. ). Graduates from Africa show an opposite trend, representing 14.64% of the non-postgraduate new registrants (14.36% from Sout11 Africa), but only 5.75% of the total non-postgraduate group (5.11 % from South Africa). Non-postgraduate new registrants from South Africa, in fact, are in second place behind graduates from Ontario (23.48%) in terms of percentage contribution to the new registrant group, and well ahead of B.C. (8.56%). Table 3 also shows some differences when looking at place of graduation by location in the province, keeping in mind tliat the numbers are relatively small, especially in tlte Capital region, and that comparisons should be made wit11 caution. B.C. graduates have t11e highest representation in Vancouver & District (12.20%) and lowest in Capital (2.78%). The propo1tion of all Otl1er Canada graduates is highest in Capital (72.22%) and lowest in Other B.C. (45.06%). Ontario and Albetta graduates show t11e highest percentages in Capital (41.67% and 16.67%), compared with Ontario's lowest in Otl1er B.C. (18.52%) and Albe1ta's lowest in Other B.C. (11.73%). For foreign graduates, provincial variations also exist. Graduates from Africa, for example, make up 27 .78% of t11e non­postgraduate new registrants in Otl1er B.C., compared with only 8.33% in Capital and 3.05% in Vancouver and District. Tables for all Directory Active physicians, and for postgraduate new registrant physicians were also produced t11is year, and are available upon request. 111e last nine tables in tllis chapter show subsets of the Directory Active physician group by Health Authority and place of graduation; in all these tables, graduates from the provinces east of Ontario are aggregated into tl1e category "Otl1er Canada", and foreign graduates are aggregated into the category "Other Country". These subsets are used in order to present more specific and useful information about the distribution of physicians in B.C. by place of graduation. Tables 4 to 6 present postgraduate physicians by Health Authority, by mean years since graduation, and by mean age. Tables 7 to 9 repeat these same tables for non-postgraduate generalists, and Tables 10 to 12 show non-postgraduate specialists. Data about date of first registration in B.C. were not available for all physicians, so tables 41 42 depicting years since first registration were not produced. TI1ere is a great deal of information in these tables, and many ways to look at it; the focus of this discussion will be a brief description of the postgraduate group and a sho1t comparison of the non-postgraduate generalists and specialists. It should be noted that the aggregation of like tables (postgraduate plus non-postgraduate generalists plus non-postgraduate specialists) gives the total Directory Active physician population; tables presenting the Directory Active group as a whole were produced, and are available upon request. Table 4 shows that the majority of postgraduate physicians is located in the Vancouver/Richmond region (617 out of703). B.C. graduates make up 31.93% of the postgraduate physicians located in Vancouver/Riclunond, compared to a provincial total of 33.00%. Graduates from other countries account for 30.96% of the postgraduate physicians in Vancouver/Riclunond, but only 28.59% overall. Capital and Simon Fraser Health Authorities have the largest numbers of postgraduate physicians outside Vancouver/Richmond (29 each). In Capital, 37.93% of the postgraduate physicians are B.C. graduates and in Simon Fraser 44.83% are B.C. graduates. Only 17.24% of postgraduate physicians in Capital graduated outside Canada, while 13.79% of the postgraduate physicians in Simon Fraser graduated outside Canada. Table 5 shows mean years since graduation for postgraduate physicians. Ontario graduates have the lowest mean years since graduation at 2.21 years and graduates from other countries fhe highest at 9.64 years. TI1e provincial totals by Health Authority show Vancouver/Richmond with the highest mean years since graduation (4.77 years). Table 6 presents mean age of postgraduate physicians. Provincial totals by place of gradnation show that the range in mean age of Canadian graduates is less than 1 year, from 29.43 years in Ontario to 29.89 years in B.C. Graduates from other countries have the highest mean age of postgradnate physicians (34.68 years). Provincial totals by Health Anthority show postgraduate physicians in the Northern Interior and Vancouver/Richmond regions with the highest mean ages (31.91 years and 31.24 years, respectively). Table 7 and Table 10 show fhe same information for non-postgraduate status generalists and non­postgraduate specialists, respectively. Provincial totals by place of graduation show a far higher proportion of B.C. graduates among the generalists compared to the specialists (32.76% versus 18.90%, respectively), while the specialists show a higher proportion of foreign graduates compared to the generalists (32.58% versus 23.37%). In both tables, there are wide ranges of representation of each place of graduation within the individual Health Authorities; in Table 7, the percentage of B.C. graduates ranges from 12.24% in Peace Liard to 44.19% in the North Shore, while in Table 10 this range is from 0.00% in Peace Liard to 22.57% in Vanconver/Richmond. The propo1tion of generalist graduates from other countries ranges from 14.50% in No1th Okanagan to 67 .35% in Peace Liard, while the propo1tion of specialists who graduated outside Canada ranges from 19.05% in Okanagan Similkameen to 66.67% in Peace Liard. TI1ere are also differences between the two tables in proportion of graduates from other provinces, but the magnitude of the differences is smaller. Tables 8 and 11 show mean years since graduation for non-postgraduate generalists and specialists, respectively. In both tables, it is B.C. graduates who have the lowest mean; 16.71 years in Table 8 and 20.54 years in Table 11. Graduates from other countries show the highest mean years since graduation in both tables, at 25.07 in Table 8 and 28.96 in Table 11. The mean years since graduation for generalists is, in fact, lower than for specialists for all places of graduation and all Health Authority totals. TI1e provincial totals by Health Authority suggest a range in means for generalists that is somewhat smaller than that seen by place of graduation; Peace Liard has the lowest mean in Table 8 at 16.73 years, and Fraser Valley the highest at 20.97 years. In Table 11, Northern Interior has the lowest mean at 21.13 years, and Coast Garibaldi the highest at 30.95 years. Tables 9 and 12 show mean age for non-postgraduate generalist and specialist physicians, respectively. As might be expected after examining Tables 8 and 11, the mean age of generalists is lower than that of specialists for all places of graduation and all Health Authority totals. The smallest difference in mean age by place of graduation is seen for graduates of Ontario; generalists of this type have an average age of 45.65 years, and specialists are, on average, 48.17 years old. TI1e largest difference is seen among the Other Canada graduates, where generalists have a mean age of 45.34 years compared to 49.00 years for specialists. Even larger differences are seen when Health Authority totals are examined; in Peace Liard, for example, the average age of generalists is 42.61 years, while that of specialists is 55.42 years. 43 44 60 50 = .s 40 ] ·~ " a 30 • "' ~ • 20 ~ • .. 10 0 Figure 1 Place of Graduation by HHRU Health Region for Directory Active Physicians' in British Columbia September 1999 British Cohunbia Other Canada Place of Graduation Other Country 1 Includes Postgraduate and Non-Postgraduate physicians. 60 50 = ~ 40 B •• A 30 • "' i 20 ~ • .. 10 0 Figure 2 Type of Registrants by Place of Graduation for Non-Postgraduate Physicians' in British Columbia September 1999 -··--~---New Registrants All Registrants 1 Excludes physicians with Dirccto1y Active Postgraduate status.

(See ROLLCALL 99 for a detailed definition of this group.) Registration does not necessarily imply employment in the field. The data in the tables are presented based on employment address when LPNs repo1t employment in nursing and employment address is available. In 1999, employment address was available for 89% of practising LPNs employed in nursing. Home address is used for the remainder, as well as for practising LPNs not employed in nursing, and for LPNs with non-practising registration status. September 1999. College of Licensed Practical Nurses of British Columbia (CLPNBC). TI1e number of LPNs witl1 unknown place of graduation should be kept in mind when using all of tl1ese tables: 133 members (2.53%) of the total group are unknown in terms of place of graduation, as are twenty-one (6.07%) of the new registrants. Figure 1 and Table 1 present employment location for all LPNs by place of graduation. Table 2 presents this same information for new registrants (registrants to the CLPNBC between September 1997 and September 1999), and Figure 2 compares new registrants by place of graduation with tl1e total registrants. Both figures show that tl1e majority of LPNs are graduates of B.C. programs. Figure 2 shows fairly similar distributions of B.C. graduates, Otl1er Canada graduates and non-Canadian graduates in tlie new registrant and total registrant groups. Tables 1 and 2 show specific province or country of graduation for LPNs. The new registrant group in Table 2 show a smaller prop01tion of B.C. graduates tlrnn the total group in Table 1 (64.45% versus 67.35%), but similar proportions of Other Canada graduates (25.43% versus 24.82%) and non­Canadian graduates (4.05% versus 5.22 170). The proportions of graduates from tl1e various individnal provinces differ between Tables 1 and 2; Ontario (7.75% of the total group versns 10.98% of the new registrants), Prince Edward Island (0.10% of the total group versus 2. 60% of the new registrants), Manitoba (3.76% of tl1e total group versus 1.45% of tl1e new registrants) and Albe1ta (6.89% of tl1e total group versus 4. 62 % of the new registrants) show tl1e greatest variation. Looking across tl1e three broad areas of tl1e province, tl1ere are some notable variations in distribution by place of graduation. In Table 1, B.C. graduates show a small variation in representation across the province (64.84% in Vancouver and District, 65.73% in Capital and 69.36% in Otl1er B.C.), but B.C. graduates show a far greater variation in representation across tl1e province amoung the new registrants (73.29% in Vancouver and District, 57.76% in Other B.C. and 50.00% in Capital). Among the non-B.C. graduates, those trained in Ontario make up 10.89% of all LPNs in the Capital, compared to 7.98% in Vancouver and District and 7.00% in Other B.C., and Albe1ta graduates have tl1eir strongest representation in Other B.C.

There is a far greater representation of foreign LPN graduates in Vancouver and District (10.36% of the total group and 7.45% of the new registrants) than in either the Capital (2.42% of the total group and 0.00% of the new registrants) or Other B.C. (2.27% of the total group and 1.24% of the new registrants). A separate table about practising LPNs who reported employment in nursing was also produced this year, but is not included as the distributions were all within one percentage point of those seen in Table 1. This table is available upon request. Table 3 disaggregates LPN numbers by Health Authority and presents them based on broader place of graduation categories; graduates from the northern territories and provinces east of Ontario are aggregated into the category "Other Canada", and graduates from other countries are aggregated into the category "Other Country". The range in proportion of B.C. graduates in different Health Authorities is from a high of 83.25% in Central Vancouver Island to a low of 49.40% in Peace Liard. The Peace Liard Health Authority has the highest percentage of Alberta graduates at 22.89%, perhaps in part because this region shares a long border with Alberta. Graduates of other countries have far higher representation in Vancouver/Richmond (13.38%) and Simon Fraser (10.14%) than they do in the other Health Authorities. Table 4 uses the same format as Table 3, this time presenting information on the average number of years since graduation. The "Total" figures across the bottom indicate that B.C. graduates have a much lower mean than graduates from other places; B.C.-trained LPNs graduated on average 17.29 years ago, while Ontario graduates showed the next lowest mean at 20. 7 5 years since graduation. Those trained in other countries graduated, on average, 25.82 years ago. Among the B.C. graduates there is a wide variation in mean years since graduation, from a high in North West of 22. 81 years to lows in Vancouver/Richmond and North Shore of 13.76 and 14.44 years, respectively. The Okanagan Similkameen Health Authority, in general, with the exception of graduates listed in "Other Country", shows lower means for each place of graduation than the provincial average. This may indicate a high turnover of LPNs in this region, or perhaps a shmter career life for LPNs there. Table 5 presents information on the average number of years since first registration with the CLPNBC by Health Authority and place of graduation. Ontario graduates show the lowest mean years since first registration, at 11.72 years, while Saskatchewan & Manitoba graduates post the highest at 17.51 years. Looking at this table in conjunction with Table 4 suggests that LPNs who graduate elsewhere move to B.C., on average, only after working some time as an LPN outside B.C. The difference between mean years since graduation and mean years for first registration is greater than 7.50 years for all place of graduation categories except B.C. graduates, who show a difference of only 0.90 years. How this translates in terms of actual work experience is unclear, as it is feasible that not all time from graduation elsewhere to registration in B.C. is spent working as an LPN. A final look at the differences for LPNs in terms of place of graduation is provided in Table 6, which shows average age of LPNs by Health Authority and place of graduation. As might be expected after examining Tables 4 and 5, LPNs graduating in B.C. have a younger mean age than graduates from other areas. Looking at the provincial totals, it appears that the North Shore has a LPN population that is relatively young compared to the rest of the province (42.01 years), while the North West has the "oldest" LPN group ( 47 .17 years), though neither is too far away from the provincial mean of 44.79 years. 61 62 70 60 • 50 :§ • B •• 40 Q " " 30 •= ~ -" 20 '" 10 0 Figure 1 Place of Graduation by HHRU Health Region for Licensed Practical Nurses1 in British Columbia SeJltember 1999 Blitish Cohnnbia ------------Other Canada Place of' Graduation Oilier Country 1 Includes Practising and Non-Practising LPNs.

Prepared by: Health Human Resources Unit Centre for Health Services and Policy Research The University of British Columbia 70 Definition: Date of Record: Source of Data: Discussion: Registered Nurses Registered Nurses (RNs) register with tl1e Registered Nurses Association of British Columbia (RNABC) with either practising or non-practising membership status.1 Those included in this report had British Columbia addresses at tl1e date of record. (See ROLLCALL 99 for a detailed definition of this group.) RNs must retain a practising membership in the RN ABC in order to work as Registered Nurse, but a practising membership does not necessarily imply employment in the field. Data in tl1e tables are presented based on employment address when the membership status is practising, when employment in nursing is reported, and when employment address is available. In 1999, employment address was available for 88% of practising RNs employed in nursing. Home address is used for the remainder, as well as for practising RNs who are not employed in nursing, and for RNs with non­practising membership status. December 1999. Registered Nurses Association of British Columbia (RNABC). Figure 1 and Table 1 present employment location for all RNs by place of graduation. Table 2 presents this same information for new registrants (registrants to the RN ABC between December 1997 and December 1999), and Figure 2 compares new registrants by place of graduation with tl1e total registration group. Figure 1 shows that a majority of RNs graduated in B.C., and tl1at those who graduated outside Canada are more likely to locate in Vancouver and District than in Capital or Other B.C. Figure 2 shows tl1at the new registrants and the total RN ABC membership have about the same propo1tional representation of Otl1er Country graduates, but tl1e new registrant group has a slightly larger propo1tion of B.C. graduates and a smaller propo1tion of Other Canada graduates than tl1e total registration group. In Tables 1and2, B.C. graduates account for 53.79% of the total group and 57 .62% of the new registrants, Otl1er Canada graduates account for 31.34% of tl1e total group and 26.24% of tl1e new registrants, and foreign graduates represent 14.84% of tl1e total group and 15.84% of the new registrants. Distribution of graduates from tl1e various provinces is fairly equal in the total column; only graduates from Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta show a somewhat higher proportional representation among tl1e total RNABC membership than among tl1e new registrants.(4.12% versus 2.94%, 3.91 % versus 2.29% and 8.06% versus 7.02%, respectively). 111ere are greater differences when looking at place of graduation by location in the province. Capital has the highest percentage of B.C. graduates (55.89%) in the total group (compared to 55.18% in Other B.C. and 52.34% in Vancouver and District), but Vancouver and District has the highest percentage of B.C. graduates (59.25%) in tl1e new registrant group, compared to 55.61 % in Capital and 55.02% in Other B.C. Ontario graduates in the total group are more likely to locate in Capital (12.75%), than in Otl1er B.C. (10.25%), or Vancouver and District (9.27%). The same is true for new registrants from Ontario (12.68% in Capital, 10.87% in Other B.C., 7.55% in Vancouver and District). Alberta graduates, on the otl1er hand, are more likely to locate in Other B.C. (11.28% of the total group and 11.20% of tl1e new registrants) and in Capital (9.19% of tl1e total group and 10.24% of the new 11le Nurses (Registered) Act, R.S.B.(~. 1996, Chapter 335 rnandates registration with the Registered Nurses Association of British Colu1nbia (RN ABC) in order to practise as a registered nurse in B .C. 71 72 registrants), than in Vancouver and District (5.58% of the total group and 4.40% of the new registrants). Non-Canadian graduates also show greater variation when looking across areas of the province as opposed to the provincial totals. Vancouver and District has the largest percentage of foreign-trained RNs in both the total and new registrant groups (20.98% and 21.66%). Most of this difference appears to be owing to the large proportion of Asian graduates in Vancouver and District (10.79% of the total group and 14.19% of the new registrants) compared to Capital (1.26% of the total group and 2.44% of the new registrants) or Other B.C. (l.13% of the total group and 1.34% of the new registrants). European-trained RNs are also more likely to locate in Vancouver and District (7.09% of the total group and 4.48% of the new registrants) compared to Capital (5.08% of the total group and 3.90% of the new registrants) or Other B.C. (4.08% of the total group and 2.17% of the new registrants). Table 3 presents RNs with non-practising registration status. The non-practising group and the total RNABC membership (Table 1) have about the same prop01tional representation of Other Canada graduates (31.88% and 31.34%, respectively), but the non-practising group has a smaller propo1tion of B.C. graduates and a larger propo1tion of Other Country graduates than the total registration group ( 49.81 % versus 53. 79% and 18.31 % versus 14.84%). '111e distributions across the province vary slightly more. For instance, in Vancouver and District, Other Canada graduates account for 28.36% of the non-practising RNs but only 26.62% of tl1e total group. Similarily in Capital, Other Canada graduates account for 37.72% of the non-practising RNs but only35.39% of the total group, while in Other B.C., Other Canada graduates account for 33.89% of the non-practising RNs but 36.83% oft11e total group. '111e propo1tion of B .C. graduates varies across t11e province much more amoung the non­practising group than amoung t11e total group (from 46.71 % in Vancouver and District to 53.50% in Otl1er B.C. versus 52.34% in Vancouver and District to 55.89% in Capital). The propo1tions of Ontario graduates are fairly similar between the non-practising group and the total group except in Capital where 16.96% of t11e non-practising group are Ontario graduates compared to only 12.75% of t11e total group. Similarily, the propo1tions of Albe1ta graduates are fairly similar between the non­practising group and the total group except in Other B.C., where only 8.69% of the non-practising group are Albe1ta graduates compared to 11.28% of the total group. Non-Canadian graduates with non-practising status account for 12.61 % compared to 7.99% of the total registration group in Other B.C., 12.57% compared to 8.72% in Capital and 24.93% compared to 20.98% in Vancouver and District. Separate tables on practising members of t11e RN ABC and practising RNs who reported employment in the field were produced this year, but they are not included as the distributions were all within one percentage point of those seen in Table I. '111ese tables are available upon request. Table 4 takes tl1e information presented in Table 1 and presents it by Health Authority, aggregating the graduates from t11e provinces east of Ontario into the single category "Other Canada" and also aggregating t11e graduates from other countries into tl1e single category "Other Country". '111e proportion of B.C. graduates in the total membership of tl1e RN ABC is 53.79%, but the range in tl1e individual Healtl1 Authorities is from 36.92% in Peace Liard to 67.95% in Thompson. Alberta graduates have their highest representation in East Kootenay (24.68%) and Peace Liard (21.51 %), but make up only 4.71 % of RNs in Simon Fraser. Ontario graduates are 10.04% of the total RN population, and tl1e largest propo1tion of Canadian, non-B.C. trained RNs. Ontario graduates are far more evenly distributed across Health Authorities than are graduates from Albe1ta or B.C., making up a low of 7.57% of RNs in Northern Interior and a high of 15.86% in Coast Garibaldi. Graduates from other countries are most likely to be found in Vancouver/Richmond (22.21 % of t11e total), and Simon Fraser (20.64% ), and least likely to be found in '111ompson ( 4.40% ). Table 5 uses this same format, this time presenting mean years since graduation by Health Authority and by place of graduation. B.C.-trained RNs graduated, on average, 16.17 years ago, compared to foreign graduates where the mean is 26.03 years. RNs in Central Vancouver Island show a mean years since graduation of 2 !. 70 years, the highest of any Health Authority. RNs in the North Okanagan, Central Vancouver Island, North Shore and Capital Health Authorities show mean years since graduation higher than the provincial average for all places of graduation, while RNs in Vancouver/Richmond show mean years since graduation lower than the provincial average for all places of graduation. This may suggest RNs in the North Okanagan, Central Vancouver Island, North Shore and Capital Health Authorities are slightly older and/or have more experience than their counterparts in other areas of the province, though experience can not be directly assumed from years since graduation. Table 6 looks at mean years since first registration with the RNABC by Health Authority and by place of graduation. Saskatchewan & Manitoba graduates show tl1e highest mean years since first registration, at 16.89 years. The lowest mean is found among Other Country graduates at 15.50 years. This is a relatively tight distribution, as is the variation seen for tl1e means across tl1e Healtl1 Authorities. 111e range across the Health Authorities is from 14.21 years in North West to 17.91 years in Nortl1 Okanagan. Only Other Canada graduates in the Peace Liard Region have a mean years since first registration with the RNABC that is less than 10 (9.20 years). Table 7 illustrates mean age of RNs, again by Healtl1 Authority and by place of graduation. B.C. graduates have the youngest mean age - 41.85 years - as might be expected after examining Table 5. Foreign graduates have the highest mean age at 48.93 years. 111e provincial mean indicates tlrat the overall age of RNs in B.C. is 44.36 years, witl1 a range in tl1e Healtl1 Authorities from 42.17 years in Peace Liard to 46.52 years in Central Vancouver Island and 46.30 years in North Okanagan. As witl1 Table 5, RNs in Vancouver have a lower mean age than the provincial average for all places of graduation. 73 74 60 50 ! 40 ~ 30 • ~s § 20 -• '" JO 0 Figure 1 Place of Graduation by HHRU Health Region for Registered Nurses1 in British Columbia December 1999 B1itish Colu1nbia Other CaJla(fa Place of Graduation Other Country 1 Includes Proctising and Non-Pnictising RNs.

Source of Data: College of Registered Psychiatric Nurses of British Columbia (CRPNBC).2 Discussion: The number of RPNs with unknown place of graduation should be kept in mind when using all of these tables; 7.45% of all registrants are unknown in terms of place of graduation, as are 7 .21 % of the practising members, 9.18% of the non-practising members and 2.11 % of the new registrants. Figure 1 and Table 1 present the location of RPNs by place of graduation. Table 2 presents employment location for new registrants (registrants to the RPNABC between October 1997 and December 1999) with practising status, and Figure 2 compares practising new registrants by place of graduation with the total practising registration group (Table 3). Figure I indicates that the majority of RPNs in B.C. graduated in this province. Figure 2 indicates that the proportions of B.C. graduates and Other Canada graduates among the new registrants are larger than in the total practising group, while the prop01tion of foreign graduates is smaller. Tables 1 and 2 show that B.C. graduates are 64.25% of the total membership in the CRPNBC and 70.53% of the practising new registrants. Other Canada graduates come only from Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Albe1ta, as there are no training programs for psychiatric nurses in the rest of Canada. Graduates from Other Canada show lower representation among the total group compared to the new registrants (15.51 % versus 21.05%). Non-Canadian graduates account for 12.79% of the total group, but only 6.32% of the new registrants. TI1e proportions of B.C., Other Canada and non-Canadian graduates in the three broad areas of the province (Vancouver and District, Capital and Other B.C.) show large variations. In Table 1, B.C. graduates account for 47.97% in Capital, 58.02% in Other B.C. and 68.09% in Vancouver and District, while Other Canada graduates account for 34.46% in Capital, 25.95% in Other B.C. and only 9.81 % in Vancouver and District. Manitoba and Saskatchewan graduates are more likely to locate in Capital than in Vancouver and District or in Other B.C. (12.84% of Manitoba graduates are in Capital versus 7.79% in Otl1er B.C. and 3.43% in Vancouver and District, and 13.51 % of Saskatchewan graduates are 1 The l{ealrh Professions Act, R.S.B.

Non-Canadian graduates, like B.C. graduates, show a higher propo1tion in Vancouver and District (15.43%) than in Capital (10.81 %) or Other B.C. (6.41 %). Most of the new registrants (Table 2) are in Vancouver and District (66 out of 95) or Other B.C. (26 out of 95). Fmther comparisons between the three broad areas of the province for new registrants are difficult to make, as the number of new registrants is relatively small, especially in Capital. Table 3 shows the distribution of practising members of the RPNABC by place of graduation, and Table 4 shows the distribution of non-practising members. Differences between Table 1 (the total group) and Tables 3 and 4 exist and should be noted; the discussion here, however, will focus on the differences between Table 3 and Table 4. TI1e small number of foreign graduates with non-practising membership (26) limits the possibilities of discussion, though it can be noted that these twenty-six represent 8.23% of the non-practising membership; in contrast, non-Canadian graduates are 13.45% of the practising membership. All bnt one non-Canadian graduate in Table 4 came from t11e U.K., as did 262 of t11e 293 (89.42%) foreign-graduated RPNs in Table 3. TI1e propo1tion of practising B.C. graduates is smaller than the proportion of non-practising B.C. graduates in all three broad areas of the province ( 66.93 % versus 7 6. 77 % in Vancouver and District, 46.15% versus 61.11 % in Capital and 55.50% versus 72.00% in Ot11er B.C.). Tilis is in contrast to the propo1tions of Ot11er Canada graduates, which are lligher among the practising members compared to t11e non-practising members (10.25% versus 6.56% in Vancouver and District, 35.39% versus 27.78% in Capital and 29.18% versus 8.00% in Other B.C.). Table 5 presents location for RPNs by Health Authority and by place of graduation, wit11 foreign graduates aggregated into one category. TI1e Simon Fraser Health Authority is t11e location of 1044 out of 2,495 RPNs total, as this healt11 region is t11e location of several large RPN employers, including B.C.'s only psyclliatric hospital. Simon Fraser is also t11e location of t11e majority of Other Country graduates (206 out of 319). In fact, foreign graduates are fairly sparse in t11e rest of t11e province. There is an extremely wide range in the propo1tions of B.C.-graduated RPNs across the Healt11 Authorities, from a high in Coast Garibaldi of 93.33% to lows in Peace Liard and East Kootenay of 20.00% and 38.89%, respectively. Peace Liard, in turn, has the highest propo1tion in the province of Alberta graduates (32.00%), and East Kootenay has t11e llighest propo1tion of Ma1litoba & Saskatchewan graduates (44.44%). Table 6 uses t11e same format as Table 5, this time presenting mean years since graduation. B.C. graduates have the lowest mean at 18.66 years, followed by Albe1ta graduates at 20.74 years. Ot11er Country graduates show a mean years since graduation that is much larger (27.90 years). The overall provincial average for years since graduation is 20.45 years, with a range from 13.81 years in Peace Liard to 29.42 years in Kootenay Boundary. Data provided by the RPNABC did not include date of i1litial registration, so a table showing mean years since first registration could not be produced. Table 7 presents mean age for RPNs by Healt11 Authority and by place of graduation. As might be expected after examining Table 6, B.C., Albe1ta and Saskatchewan & Manitoba graduates all have a lower mean age tlian graduates from other countries. Saskatchewan & Manitoba graduates, however, have a slightly lower mean age tlian Alberta graduates, even though the Alberta-trained RPNs have, on average, a lower mean years since graduation. Tllis may reflect differences in the education programs in these two provinces, or the age at wllich people choose to enter the programs. (It should also be kept in mind that tl1e "N" used for t11ese two tables is different, because of variation in t11e completeness of the data.) 87 88 70 60 § 50 "' = Pc 40 ~ • " 30 j • 20 .. 10 0 Figure 1 Place of Graduation by HHRU Health Region for Registered Psychiatric Nurses' in British Columbia December 1999 British Cohunbia --------------~--·····---------l Other Canada Place of Graduation -----~·-------Other Country 1 Includes Practising and Non-Practisiug RPNs.

Health Human Resources Unit Centre for Health Services and Policy Research The University of British Coluntbia 96 97 IV Nutrition and Dietary Services 98 Definition: Date of Record: Source of Data: Discussion: Registered Dietitians and Nutritionists Registered Dietitians and Nutritionists (RDNs) included in this rep01t are registered with the British Columbia Dietitians' and Nutritionists' Association (BCDNA).1 Those included in this report had British Columbia addresses at the date of record. (See ROLLCALL 99 for a detailed definition of this group.) Membership in the BCDNA does not necessarily imply employment in the field. Data in the tables are presented based on employment address when employment in dietetics/nutrition is repo1ted, and when employment address is available. In 1999, employment address was available for 97% of RDNs employed in dietetics/nutrition. Home address is used for the remainder, as well as for RDNs who are not employed in dietetics/nutrition. December 1999. British Columbia Dietitians' and Nutritionists' Association (BCDNA). The registered dietitians and nutritionists group is one of only two included in PLACE OF GRADUATION which is not a mandatory registration group. As a result, the information presented here is representative only of those people trained as dietitians and nutritionists who choose to become members of the BCDNA. Many employers may insist on membership with the BCD NA as a prerequisite for employment, and the BCDNA is thought to have a fairly comprehensive membership, but there is no way to guarantee, as with groups where registration is mandatory, that the entire workforce is represented in these tables. Figure 1 and Table 1 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 BCD NA between December 1997 and December 1999). Figure 1 indicates a large prop01tion of dietitians and nutritionists graduate from schools in other paits of Canada, and shows a significant difference in employment location for graduates of different areas. Figure 2 shows that B.C. graduates account for a much smaller percentage of the new registrants than of the total registrants, and that Other Canada graduates and foreign graduates make up larger percentages of the new registrants than of the total registrants. Tables 1 and 2 show that B.C. graduates are 47.65% of the total registration group but only 35.38% of the new registrants. The percentage of Other Canada graduates, however, is lower in the total group (44.60%) than in the new registrants (50.77%). This is probably attributable to the larger prop01tions of graduates from the provinces of Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Quebec among the new registrants compared to the smaller prop01tions of graduates from those provinces in the total group. Only a small percentage of dietitians and nutritionists are foreign graduates (7.24% of the total registration group and 13.85% of the new registrants), with the largest po1tion of the foreign graduates in the total registration group coming from the U.S. (3.05%). Table 1 illustrates the differences in location suggested by Figure I. B.C. graduates range from only 27.91 % of the dietitian and nutritionist population in Capital to 42.62% of that population in Other 1 Me1nbership in the British Columbia Dietitians' and Nutritionists' Association (BCDNA) is volunl<:ffy, but registered ine1nbers have exclusive use of the titles Registered Dietitian, Registered Nutritionist, Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist and JUJ.N. B.C. and 53.88% in Vancouver and District. TI1e paucity of B.C. graduates in Capital is made up for by Albe1ta (16.28%), Ontario (13.95%) and Nova Scotia (10.47%) graduates. TI1ese numbers are all higher than the group totals for these provinces (10.29%, 12.20%, and 4.57%, respectively). Vancouver and District registers the highest proportion of foreign graduates (8.19%), and also has most of the U.S. graduates (3.66% versus 2.33% in Capital and 2.11 % in Other B.C.). Capital has a disproportionate number of graduates from the Philippines (3 .49% in Capital compared to 1.52 % overall). A separate table on registered members of the BCD NA who reported employment in dietetics/nutrition was also produced this year but is not included. TI1e distributions were all within one or two percentage points of those seen in Table I (all BCDNA members). This table is available upon request. Table 3 presents the location of registered dietitians and nutritionists by Health Authority and by place of graduation, with graduates from the provinces east of Ontario aggregated into the category "Other Canada", and foreign graduates aggregated into the category "Other Country". The propo1tion of B.C. graduates in the total membership of the BCD NA is 47.65%, but the range in the individual Health Authorities is from 0.00% in Peace Liard to 62.50% in Cariboo. TI1ese two Health Authorities, however, are two of three regions in the province with ten or fewer dietitians and nutritionists in total, so a difference of only one or two individuals has a large influence on the propo1tions in these regions. TI1ere are six Health Authorities where the population of dietitians and nutritionists is made up entirely of Canadian graduates: Fraser Valley, Northern Interior, Coast Garibaldi, Cariboo, North West, and Peace Liard. Table 4 uses the same format as Table 3, this time presenting mean years since graduation. The province-wide totals show that B.C. graduates have the lowest mean years since graduation at 14.84 years, while those trained in other countries graduated, on average, 23. 72 years ago. Ontario graduates have the second highest mean years since graduation, at 18.01 years. Provincial totals by Health Authority indicate a fairly wide variation in mean years since graduation; looking only at Health Authorities with more than ten dietitians and nutritionists, the range is from 14.02 years in Okanagan Similkameen to 20.97 years in the No1th Shore. Data provided by the BCD NA did not include date of initial registration, so a table showing mean years since first registration could not be produced this year. Table 5 looks at mean age by Health Authority and by place of graduation for registered dietitians and nutritionists. As might be expected after examining Table 4, B.C. graduates show the lowest mean age at 38.92 years, and Other Country graduates show the highest mean age at 46.55 years. TI1e range in age across the Health Authorities, looking only at Health Authorities with more than ten dietitians and nutritionists, is from 37.74 years in Okanagan Similkameen to 44.11 years in the N01th Shore. 99 JOO .§ Figure I Place of Graduation by HHRU Health Region for Registered Dietitians and Nutritionists (BCDNA Members)' in British Columbia December 1999 70 GO 50 ~ I-11-IRU 1-Icalth Region ..

Prepared by: Health Human Resources Unit Centre for Health Services and Policy Research The University of British Columbia 106 107 V Psychological Services 108 Psychologists Definition: Psychologists register with the College of Psychologists of British Columbia (CPBC) with either practising or non-practising status. I TI10se included in this repo1t had British Columbia addresses at the date of record. (See ROLLCALL 99 for a detailed definition of this group.) Members with practising status may offer psychological services, but registration with the College does not necessarily imply employment in the field. Members with non-practising status may not offer psychological services to the general public, but may be employed by such institutions as School Boards or Universities. Data in the tables are presented based on employment address when psychologists report employment in psychology and employment address is available. In 2000, employment address was available for 98% of psychologists employed in psychology. Home address is used for the remainder, as well as for psychologists not employed in psychology. Place of graduation for psychologists refers to the place where the highest degree was obtained (i.e. if Master's and PhD degrees are completed at different universities, the University granting the PhD is used to record place of graduation). Date of Record: January 2000. Source of Data: College of Psychologists of British Columbia (CPBC). Discussion: Figure 1 and Table 1 present location of psychologists by place of graduation. Table 2 presents this same information for new registrants (registrants to the CPBC between December 1997 and January 2000), and Figure 2 compares new registrants by place of graduation with the total registrants. Figure 1 suggests that graduates from different areas have a fairly even distribution across the province. Figure 2 suggests small differences in the prop01tional representation of graduates of different areas between the new registrants and the total group, with the propo1tion of Other Canada graduates slightly lower and that of B.C. and Other Country graduates higher in the new registrant group. Tables 1 and 2 show that the proportion of B.C. graduates is larger in the new registrants than in the total group ( 44.95% vs. 40.04%, respectively). Conversely, the percentage of Oilier Canada graduates is larger among the overall group t11an in the new registrants (31.78 versus 23.86%, respectively). Graduates from Ontario contribute the most to Ill.is difference as t11ey represent 14.72% of the graduates in the total group versus 11.01 % of t11e graduates in tl1e new registrants. The prop01tion of foreign graduates is slightly smaller in the total group than in the new registrant group (28.18% versus 31.19%), and a majority of these foreign graduates are from the U.S. (22.25% of t11e total group and 23.85% of new registrants). Tables 1 and 2 show some variation when looking at the provincial distribution of graduates. Both Capital and Ot11er B.C. have smaller proportions ofB.C. graduates than Vancouver and District among the total group (36.05% in Capital and 34.73% in Other B.C. versus 42.64% in Vancouver and District), but slightly larger propo1tions of B.C. graduates than Vancouver and District among the new registrant group (45.00% in Capital and 46.67% in Other B.C. versus 44.59% in Vancouver and 1 As of January 1, 2000, The I-Iealth l)rofessions Act, R.S.13.C'. 1996, Chapter 183 IIllli1dates registration with the College of Psychologists of British Colu1nbia (CPBC) in order to practise as a psychologist in B.C. District). Differences in the provincial distribution of Other Canada graduates in the total registration group are smaller (from 28.27% in Vancouver and District to 36.04% in Capital and 40.12% in Other B.C.), compared to the variation in the provincial distribution of Other Canada graduates among the new registrants (from 16.22% in Vancouver and District to 40.00% in both Capital and Other B.C.). Differences in the provincial distribution of graduates from the individual provinces and from foreign countries also exist, but the total number of new registrants (109) limits the ability to draw definite conclusions. A table looking at practising psychologists who reported employment in psychology was also produced, but is not included as the distributions are quite similar to those seen in Table 1. Most of the differences between the total group and those who repo1ted employment in psychology were within one or two percentage points, which is not unexpected given the relatively small size of this group (944 total). Tilis table is available upon request. Table 3 presents location of psychologists by Health Authority and by place of graduation, with graduates from the provinces east of Ontario aggregated into the category "Other Canada", and foreign graduates aggregated into the category "Other Country". The highest propo1tion of psychologists is accounted for by B.C. graduates at 40.04%, and the next largest propmtion is Other Country graduates at 28.18%. Graduates from the other provinces represent much lower propmtions of psychologists (from 14.72% in Ontario down to 3.71 % in Other Canada). 111e range in the proportion ofB.C. graduates in the individual Health Authorities, looking only at Health Authorities with at least ten psychologists, is from 12.50% in Okanagan Similkameen to 63.64% in Thompson. 111e small numbers in many of the cells in Table 3 make more extensive comparisons difficult. 111e same is true for the remainder of the tables (Tables 4 tl!l'ough 6). Table 4 uses the same format, this time presenting mean years since graduation. Looking just at the provincial totals, B.C. graduates have the lowest mean years since graduation at 14.24 years, and Other Country graduates the highest at 20.42 years. The overall provincial average for years since graduation is 17.12 years. The range in the individual Health Authorities, looking only at Health Authorities with at least ten psychologists, is from 14.07 years in Simon Fraser to 23.73 years in Kootenay Boundary. It should be kept in mind that mean years since graduation refers to graduation with the llighest degree acliieved. Table 5 looks at mean years since first registration in B.C. by Health Authority and by place of graduation. Saskatchewan & Manitoba graduates show the lowest mean years since first registration, at 11.16 years, and Other Canada graduates the llighest at 15.09 years. Looking only at Health Authorities with at least ten psychologists, the range in the individual Health Authorities is from 10.15 years in Northern Interior to 20.36 years in Kootenay Boundary. Table 6 illustrates mean age of psychologists, again by Health Authority and by place of graduation. In contrast to what might be expected from Table 5, B.C. graduates show the lowest mean age, at 49.47 years and Other Country graduates show the llighest mean age at 53.09 years. 111e range in mean age in the individual Health Authorities, again comparing only Health Authorities with at least ten psychologists, is from48.41 years in Fraser Valley to 55.50 years in North Okanagan. 109 110 45 40 35 j 30 ~ "" 25 • 20 " •ii ~ 15 • "' 10 5 0 Figure 1 Place of Graduation by HHRU Health Region for Psychologists' in British Columbia January 2000 British Colunibia Olher Canada Place of Graduation Other Country 1 Includes Practising and Non-Practising psychologists. 45 40 35 • ~ 30 •• 25 "" •" 20 ~ 0 ~ 15 0 "' 10 5 0 Figure 2 Type of Registrants by Place of Graduation for Psychologists' in British Columbia January 2000 New Registrants All Registrants 1 Includes Practising and Non-Practising psychologists.

Prepared by: Health Human Resources Unit Centre for Health Sen-ices and Policy Research The University of British Columbia 117 VI Rehabilitation Services l18 Definition: Date of Record: Sonrce of Data: Discussion: Massage Therapists Massage Therapists (MTs) register with the College of Massage Therapists of British Columbia (CMTBC) 1 with Active or Inactive registration status. 2 Those included in this report had British Columbia addresses at the date of record. (See ROLLCALL 99 for a detailed definition of this group.) Active Registrants are massage therapists who have passed registration examinations and are qualified to practise in massage therapy in British Columbia. Inactive Registrants are members of the CMTBC who are not currently practising massage therapy in British Columbia. Registration with the CMTBC does not necessarily imply employment in the field. Data in the tables are presented based on employment address when the registration status is Active, when employment in massage therapy is repo1ted, and when employment address is available. In 2000, employment address was available for 95% of Active Registrant MTs employed in massage therapy. Home address is used for the remainder, as well as for those who are not employed in massage therapy, and for MTs with Inactive registration status. Janaury 2000. College of Massage Therapists of British Columbia (CMTBC). Figure 1 and Table 1 show the place of graduation for all registered MTs. Table 2 shows this same information for new registrants (registrants to the CMTBC between December 1997 and January 2000) wit11 Active status, and Figure 2 compares new registrants by place of graduation with the Active status group. Figures 1 and 2 both demonstrate the relative lack of graduates from outside Canada. Figure 1 indicates B.C. graduates are most likely to locate in Vancouver and District, while graduates from Other Canada are more likely to locate in Capital. Figure 2 indicates that a growing percentage of new registrants received their training in B.C. Table 1 indicates B.C. graduates are 71.63% of the total group of MTs and 25.38% are Ontario graduates, with a minimal number from other provinces in Canada. There are only eighteen registrants to the CMTBC who are graduates of foreign schools, representing 1.31 % of the total group. In tlm new registrant table (Table 2), B.C. graduates represent 90.50% of the new registrant total and Ontario graduates only 7 .26%. The number of new registrants (179) is relatively high, given the number of registrants in the total group (1,371). 111e distribution of MTs across the province shows that while 71.63% of the total group are B.C. graduates, this proportion is 80.70% in Vancouver and District, probably at least in pa1t owing to the Vancouver location of one of the two training facilities for MTs in B.C. Among the new registrants, the percentage of B.C. graduates in Vancouver & District is even higher at 93.20%. In contrast, in Capital in Table 1, only 49.32% are B.C. graduates, while 43.92% in this area graduated in Ontario and 3.38% 1 TI1e l-lealth Professions Act, R.S.B.C. 1996, Chapter 183 inandates registration with the College of Massage Therapists of British Colu1nbia (CMTBC) in order to practise as a 1nassage therapist in B.C. 2 Please note, the CMTBC has replaced the former registration category of full with the registration category of Active, and accurate data on Inactive registrants are now available and are presented in the tables this year. graduated in other countries. New registrants located in Capital show a lower representation of B.C. graduates (80.00%), though it should be noted that there are only 10 new registrants located in Capital. Tables looking at Active Registrant MTs who rep01ted employment in massage therapy, and only Active Registrant MTs were also produced this year but are not included, as the distributions were all within one or two percentage points of those seen in Table 1 (all registrants). A separate table including only Inactive Registrants was also produced this year, but is not included because of the small number of MTs in this registration category; in January 2000 there were only 55 Inactive MTs. Of the 55, fifty­one were graduates of Canadian schools, and thirty-two of these were graduates of B .C schools. All tables mentioned but not published are available upon request. Table 3 expands the information provided in Table 1, disaggregating location into Health Authorities; graduates from the provinces east of Ontario are aggregated into the category "Other Canada'', and foreign graduates are aggregated into the category "Other Country". Peace River, with six MTs, is the only Health Authority composed entirely of B.C. graduates. 111e average proportion of B .C. graduates in the individual Health Authorities is 71.63%. Looking only at Health Authorities with more than ten MTs total, the range in proportion of B.C. graduates is from 48.15% in East Kootenay to 89.31 % in Simon Fraser. Ontario graduates have the strongest representation in East Kootenay, with 51.85% of the MTs in that Health Authority. In contrast, Ontario graduates make up only 9.16% of MTs in Simon Fraser. Table 4 uses the same format as Table 3, this time looking at mean years since graduation. This tables shows a clear difference among MTs with different places of graduation; B.C.-trained MTs graduated, on average, 5.62 years ago, while those trained in Ontario have a mean years since graduation of 12.39 years, and graduates from other countries show a mean of 21.88 years. These discrepancies may be due in part to the recent growth in the MT registration group, and also in part to the expansion of B.C. massage therapy training programs in the past few years (see the ROLLCALL series for more information on both these numbers). 111e range in the mean in the individual Health Authorities is from 5.46 years in Simon Fraser to 10.28 years in Capital. Table 5 looks at mean age of MTs by Health Authority and by place of graduation. As might be expected after examining Table 4, B.C. graduates show the lowest mean age at 36.51 years, while those trained in Ontario are somewhat older, with a mean age of 42.17 years, as are Other Country graduates who show a mean age of 46.94 years. 111e range in mean age across the Health Authorities is from 35.94 years in Simon Fraser to 41.79 years in Capital. A table on mean years since first registration was also produced but is not presented here as it does not offer a great deal of additional information; the table is, however, available upon request. 119 120 90 80 70 § " 60 = 'E ~ 50 • " 40 •'§ 30 -• "' 20 10 0 Figure 1 Place of Graduation by HHRU Health Region for Massage Therapists1 in British Columbia January 2000 British Cohunbia Other Canada Place of Graduation Other Country IIHRU lfealth Region @Vancouver & District DCapital iiiOLherB.C. 1 Includes Active and Inactive registrants.

Those included in this repo1t had British Columbia addresses at the date of record. (See ROLLCALL 99 for a detailed definition of this group.) OTs who register as provisional generally have met the educational and competency requirements of membership, but have not completed the national certification exam. Registration with the BCSOT does not necessarily imply employment in the field. Data in the tables are presented based on employment address when the membership stains is registered or provisional, when employment in occupational therapy is reported, and when employment address is available. Employment address was available for 96% of registered or provisional OTs employed in occupational therapy. Home address is used for the remainder, as well as for OTs with registered or provisional status who are not employed in occupational therapy, and for OTs with non-practising membership stains. Date of Record: April 2000. Source of Data: British Columbia Society of Occupational Therapists (BCSOT).2 Discussion: The occupational therapist group is one of only two included in PLACE OF GRADUA710N 99 for which the data presented were obtained from a membership group rather than a mandatory registration group.! As a result, the information presented here is representative only of those people trained as OTs who choose to become members of the BCSOT. Many employers may insist on membership with the BCSOT as a prerequisite for employment, and the BCSOT is thought to have a fairly comprehensive membership, but there is no way to guarantee, as with groups where registration is mandatory, that the entire workforce is represented in these tables. TI1e number of occupational therapists (OTs) with unknown place of graduation should be kept in mind when using all of these tables; 1.45% of the total group are unknown in terms of place of graduation, and 3.82% of new registrants. Figure 1 and Table I show the place of graduation for all OTs registered with the BCSOT. Table 2 shows this same information for new registrants (registrants to the BCSOT between March 1998 and April 2000) with registered or provisional status, and Figure 2 compares new registrants with registered or provisional status by place of graduation with the total registered or provisional status group. Figure 1 suggests some differences in the distribution of OTs in the province by place of graduation; graduates from B.C. are more likely to locate in Vancouver and District, while those graduating in other pa1ts of Canada are more likely to locate in Other B.C. or l Please note, occupational therapists became a regulated health profession with co1npulsory registration under the I-lealth Professions Act, R.S.B. C. 1996, C'hapter 183 on Dece1nber 8, 1998. The College of Occupational Therapists of British Colurnbia will regulate occupational therapy in British Colu1nbia, and plans are to begin the process of registering members in 2000. 2 Data for ROLLCALL 99 and P/.AC'E' OF GRADUATION 99 were obtained, as in the past, fro1n the British Colu1nbia Society of Occupational Therapists (BCSOT) since the College of Occupational Therapists of B.C. had not yet registered 1nembers. Please note, 1ne1nbership in the BCSOT is volunt<u-y. 127 128 Capital. Figure 2 shows a much lower proportion of B.C. graduates and a much higher proportion of Other Canada graduates in the new registrant group compared to all registrants. Tables 1 and 2 help to describe these differences. 111e proportion of B.C. graduates among all registrants is 39.03%, compared with 25.95% among the new registrants (registered and provisional members). Graduates from the other provinces show higher representation in the new registrants than in the total membership. For example, Ontario graduates are 18.32% of the new registrants but only 14.49% of the total group, and Quebec graduates are 6.87% of the new registrants compared to 4.87% of the total group. Non-Canadian graduates show higher representation among the total membership than among the new registrants (22.77% in the total membership and only 16.79% in the new registrants). Graduates from the U.S. and the U.K. account for higher proportions among the total group than among the new registrants (3. I I% versus 1.53% and 10.56% versus 3.05%, respectively), while graduates from Asia and Australia account for higher proportions among the new registrants than among the overall BCSOT membership (6.87% versus 4. 14% and 3.05% versus 1.24%, respectively). Table I also shows some differences, as suggested in Figure 1, regarding the location of OTs in the province. Vancouver and District is more likely to have B.C. graduates than either Capital or Other B.C.; B.C. graduates are 42.71 % in Vancouver and District, but 33.33% of OTs in Capital and 33.21 % of those in Other B.C. Meanwhile, Capital is far more likely to have Ontario graduates (21.57%) than either Other B.C. (14.96%) or Vancouver and District (13.05%), and Other B.C. is more likely to have Alberta graduates (19.71 %) than either Capital (10.78%) or Vancouver and District (5.42%). The proportion of non-Canadian graduates ranges from I 7.15% in Other B.C. to 19.61 % in Capital and 25.93% in Vancouver and District. Capital registers no OTs who are graduates of schools in Asia, while these graduates make up 6.44% and 0.73% of OTs in Vancouver and District and Other B.C., respectively. Separate tables on registered and provisional members of the BCSOT, registered and provisional members of the BCSOT who repo1ted employment in occupational therapy, and non-practising BCSOT members were also produced this year. 111e first two tables are not included this year as the distributions were all within one or two percentage points of those seen in Table 1. 111e table 01111011-practising BCSOT members is also not included because, although it showed some differences in composition from Table I, the small number of OTs in the non-practising registration category (only 46) makes extensive comparisons difficult. These three tables are available upon request. Table 3 expands the information provided in Table 1, disaggregating location into Health Authorities; graduates from the provinces east of Ontario are aggregated into the category "Other Canada", and foreign graduates are aggregated into the category "Other Country". B.C. graduates account for 39.03% of the total BCSOT membership, but the proportion of B.C. graduates in individual Health Authorities ranges from 0.00% in Peace Liard to 53.85% in North West. 111e percentage distribution may in some cases be misleading for OTs, as the total group number (966) is relatively small, and over one-third (359) are located in Vancouver/Richmond. 111ere are three Health Authorities that have fewer than ten OTs and another five with between ten and twenty. There are two Health Authorities where 100% of OTs graduated from Canadian schools; North Okanagan and Cariboo, with thirteen and six 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 12.33 years, though Alberta graduates are not too much higher at 12.97 years. Other Country graduates have the highest mean years since graduation at 22.38 years. Looking at the provincial totals, the overall mean years since graduation is 15.27 years. 111e individual Health Authorities all fall fairly close to that mean, with the notable exceptions of Upper Island/Central Coast, Cariboo and Peace Liard, where the means are 19.65, 11.50 and 11.00 years respectively (though only six OTs contribute to the mean in Cariboo and only four contribute in Peace Liard). Table 5 looks at mean age of OTs by Health Authority and by place of graduation. B.C. graduates have the youngest mean age - 39.16 years - as might be expected after examining Table 4. Foreign graduates have the highest mean age at 47.50 years. The range in age across the Health Authorities, looking only at Health Authorities with more than ten OTs, is from 39.90 years in East Kootenay to 46.53 years in Upper Island/Central Coast. A table on mean years since first registration was also produced but is not presented here as it does not offer a great deal of additional information; the table is, however, available upon request. 129 130 50 45 40 § 35 " = ~ 30 ~ 25 • ~• 20 § ~ 15 • "' 10 5 0 F1gure 1 Place of Graduation by HHRU Health Region for Occupational Them1>ists (BCSOT Members)1 in British Columbia I British Colunihia April 2000 Other Canada Place of Graduation Other Countiy l-11-IRU llealth Region rn Vancouver & District OCapital !iilOthcrB.C. 1 Includes Registered, Provisional and Non-Practising 1nc1nbcrs.

Prepared by: Health Hun1an Resources Unit Centre for Health Sen.ices and Policy Research The University of British Columbia 136 Definition: Date of Record: Source of Data: Discussion: Physical Therapists Physical Therapists (PTs) register with the College of Physical Therapists of British Columbia (CPTBC)1 with/ult, interim, limited or inactive registration status.2 Those included in this report had British Columbia addresses at the date of record. (See ROLLCALL 99 for a detailed definition of this group.) Registration witl1 the CPTBC does not necessarily imply employment in the field. Data in the tables are presented based on employment address when tl1e membership status is full or limited, when employment in physical tl1erapy is reported, and when employment address is available. Employment address was available for 96% of full or limited PTs employed in physical therapy. Home address is used for the remainder, as well as for PTs with full or interim status who are not employed in physical therapy, and for PTs with inactive registration status. June 2000. College of Physical Therapists of British Columbia (CPTBC). The number of PTs witl1 unknown place of graduation must be kept in mind when using all of these tables; 8.85% of the total group are unknown in terms of place of graduation, as are 4.60% of the new registrants. Figure 1 and Table I show tl1e place of graduation for all PTs. Table 2 shows this same information for new registrants (registrants to the CPTBC between April 1998 and June 2000) witl1 full or interim status, and Figure 2 compares new registrants by place of graduation with the total full or interim status group. Figure 1 indicates tliat the majority of physical therapists graduate from programs outside B.C. and that those PTs who graduated in Other Canada are most likely to be located in Capital, while foreign graduates are most likely to be located in Vancouver and District. Fignre 2 shows a much smaller proportion of foreign graduates among the new registrants compared to the total group, and a much larger propo1tion of Otl1er Canada graduates among the new registrants. TI1e proportions of both B.C. graduates and Other Canada graduates are larger among the new registrants than among tl1e total group (36.78% versus 26.05% and 50.58% versus 33.37%, respectively). Within Other Canada, the propo1tion of Manitoba graduates is lower in tl1e new registrants tlian in the total group (2.30% versus 4.28%), and tl1e proportions of Quebec and Ontario graduates are much higher among the new registrants (8.05% versus 4.36% and 26.44% versus 12.37%, respectively). Looking at location in tl1e province, tl1e proportions are very different between tl1e new registrant group and the total group. For instance, Ontario graduates in tl1e total group account for only 11.98% in Vancouver and District and 11.23% in Other B.C., but in the new registrants they account for 22.81 % in Vancouver and District and 39.13% in Other B.C. The proportion of B.C. graduates in Capital is 17.79% in Table 1 but increases to 57.14% in Table 2. Alberta graduates range 1 The !-lea/th Professions Act, R.S.B. C. 1996, Chapter 183 irumdates registration with the College of Physical Therapists of BC (CPTBC) in order to practise as a physical therapist in B.C. 2 Please note, the CPTBC replaced the fonner registration category of "limited" with the registration category "interitn". A PT 1uay work as an interitn (fonnerly limited) registrant until all qualifications for me1nbership are met. The CPTBC has also created a new registration category titled "lirnited". Litnited registrant PTs are restricted to practice only in a specific area and/or under supervision iu1cl/or in a li1nited capacity. The li1nited registration category is not shown in the tables as there were no PTs registered in tl1e new litnited category in June 2000. 137 138 from 4.63% in Vancouver and District to 14.95% in Capital in the total group and from 0.00% in Capital to 21.74% in Other B.C. in the new registrants. 11ie small numbers in some of the cells in Table 2 should be kept in mind however, when drawing conclusions from these differences. Foreign graduates account for a much larger p01tion of the total group than of the new registrants (31.72% versus 8.05% ). Graduates from the U.K. show the largest difference, accounting for 18.34% of the total group, but only 5.75% of the new registrants. Examining distributions of foreign graduates across the province shows that in the total group, Vancouver and District has the highest proportion of foreign-trained PTs (34.58% versus 25.27% in Capital and 29.59% in Other B.C.). Graduates from Asia in the total group are also more likely to locate in Vancouver and District than in Capital or Other B.C. (3.91 % in Vancouver and District versus 0.71 % in Capital and 0.12% in Other B.C.). Tables looking at only the full and interim registrant PTs and the full and interim registrant PTs who repo1ted employment in physical therapy were also produced this year but are not included. 111e second of these two tables is not included as the distributions were all within one or two percentage points of those seen in Table I (all registrants). 111e proportions in the table on full and interim registrant PTs are also very similar to those in Table I. 111e most noteworthy difference is that in Capital, the propo1tion of Other Canada graduates is slightly higher in the table on full and limited registrant PTs than among the total group (53.30% vs. 49.11 %). These tables are available upon request. A separate table showing interim registrants is not included here because of the small number of PTs in this registration category; in June 2000 the interim register held only 81 PTs. Of the 81, sixty­one were graduates of Canadian schools. A table showing the inactive members of the CPTBC is also not included, as there are only 204 PTs within this registration category. All tables mentioned but not published are available upon request. As with Table I, the large number of PTs with unknown place of graduation must be kept in mind when using most of the following tables; 8.85% of PTs are unknown in terms of place of graduation in Table 3, 8.51 % of PTs are unknown in terms of place of graduation in Table 5, and 8.45% of PTs are unknown in terms of place of graduation in Table 6. Table 3 disaggregates the information provided in Table I by Health Authority, with graduates from the provinces east of Ontario aggregated into the category "Other Canada", and foreign graduates aggregated into the category "Other Country". 111e percentage of B.C. graduates in each Health Authority ranges from 15.79% in East Kootenay (though this mean is based on only 6 PTs) up to 37.70% in Upper Island/Central Coast. The percentage of Alberta graduates is only 7.88% for the province as a whole, but reaches 22.03% in East Kootenay, which shares a large border with Albe1ta. 111e proportions of foreign graduate PTs range from 21.57% in Northern Interior to 56.52% in Peace Liard. Table 4 uses the same format as Table 3, this time presenting mean years since graduation. The relatively large number of PTs with missing or invalid year of graduation in B.C. (217 PTs) must be kept in mind when examining this table. 11ie total row shows that B.C. graduates, at 15.31 years, have the lowest mean years since graduation. Non-Canadian graduates have the highest mean, at 24.45 years. The range in the mean for B.C graduates in the individual Health Authorities is from 11.71 years in N01th West to 23.13 years in Cariboo (though this mean is based on only 8 physical therapists). Looking at the graduates of other countries, Peace Liard presents with a mean years since graduation of 17 .69 years compared to 29.35 years in 111ompson. Table 5 shows the mean years since first registration in B.C. for PTs. 111e difference between the mean years since first registration in B.C. and the mean years since graduation (Table 4) may reflect time taken off between graduation and registration with the CPTBC, or work experience obtained in another province or country. Whatever the reason, the numbers in the total row are all lower than the corresponding numbers in Table 4 by several years. Ontario graduates show the smallest mean years since first registration in B.C. at 11.41 years, and Other Country graduates the largest at 17.24 years. Within the B.C. graduates, tl1e lowest mean years since first registration is in North West at 11.14 years and the highest mean years since first registration is in Peace Liard at 20.50 years. Table 6 presents tl1e mean age of PTs by place of graduation and by Healtl1 Authority. B.C. graduates are the youngest, witl1 a mean age of 41.20 years, followed by Ontario and Other Canada witl1 mean ages of 41.56 years and 41.99 years, respectively. Otl1er Country graduates have the oldest mean age at 47.77 years. It is interesting to note that the difference in mean years since graduation (Table 4) for B.C. and Other Country graduates is over nine years, while the difference in mean age is only about six and a half years, suggesting tl1at PTs graduating in other countries are slightly younger tl1an Canadian graduates when tl1ey finish their schooling. 139 140 45 40 35 t 30 ~ 25 " 20 " j 15 " .. 10 5 0 Figure 1 Place of Graduation by HHRU Health Region for Physical Therapists1 in British Columbia June 2000 British Cohunhia Other Canada Place of Graduation Other Country 1 Includes Full, Interi1n and Inactive registrants.
