You did it.. you found out you passed the COKO final exam.. CONGRATS!!..


Below are my top 3 pieces of advice for new R.Kins in Ontario:


If you haven’t already then you should try to ASAP! I got my current job opportunity through volunteering. Since the Kinesiology program doesn’t have any placements, students don’t get any real experience seeing what a Kin does. If you went through the Master’s program, you may have obtained a few experiences. If not, then start searching around for a local Kin and see if you can even shadow them for a day.. it’s a start!


Visit and talk to other Kins who are currently practicing to get a feel with what setting or area you would like to practice. I know some individuals who work in clinics like myself, some have their own gyms and some work with workplace wellness or ergonomics specialists. Until you know what’s out there it’s hard for you to decide on which area you would like to work in.


How do you see Kinesiology being used in Ontario, since this profession is so new it’s open for interpretation from anyone. My views on what Kinesiology can be used for may be a lot different than yours. It’s people like you and me that can help shape the future of what Kinesiology is and what Kinesiologists do.

Hopefully this helps,

Spencer Raposo, R.Kin
