Peter Morcom, President
Canadian Certified Pedorthists specialize in treating pain and conditions of the lower limbs and feet. Over the last 15 years, the practice and profession of pedorthics has significantly grown in Canada.
In his role as President of the Association, Morcom strives to bring more awareness to the work pedorthists do and to work with international associations whose values align with those of the PAC.
On a local level, Morcom is the Fraser Valley Regional Manager of Kintec: Footwear + Orthotics.
He studied Kinesiology at the University of the Fraser Valley and became interested in pedorthics as a way to get into a young profession that heavily incorporates health and athletics and allowed him to be a specialist.
