Hey guys, I am also thinking of doing Physiotherapy in the future. I don't want to steal this thread with a question of my own, so I will try to relate it to what the original question was and maybe your answers could clarify things for him as well.
I am taking Kinesiology and going into first year this September. Based on the requirements hamnahx02 suggested,

All it says is you need to complete any degree with a minimum B avg in your last two years.... but you do need:
- A full or half credit in one biological or life science course with a grade of B or 75% or 3.0/4 or 8/12 or higher.
- A full or half credit in one social science or humanities course with a grade of B or 75% or 3.0/4 or 8/12 or higher.
However, an undergrad in the kinesiology program would probably be the most helpful ... but the website does say "The degree can be in any university discipline; none are favoured." So really... it all depends on your interests, go into what you like and know you can succeed in, and get great marks. If your a science person- def. apply to the kinesiology program
would these requirements get me into physio? Or would I need to take on other things, such as take biology, chemistry, and other science related courses by the time I graduate, besides the ones listed above? I'm asking this because I don't know if I should be taking such courses to get me into physio, 2 of my electives are courses I need to do by second year to either help me with courses or as a requirement, and the other 2 are psychology courses I am taking just based on interest.
And to the OP, definitely go with Kin if your pursuing physio. That is what I am doing, as I believe it is the program that serves as a "base" for physio. Be sure to take Exercise Science in your last year of high school as that is again, the "base", for Kin.
