Oct 27th is World Occupational Therapy Day!

OPSEU local 101 is proud to celebrate Occupational Therapy Day and our team of dedicated Occupational Therapists.

World OT Day 2020

Occupational therapists, often called OTs, are the primary providers of occupational therapy services. OTs are:
  • university educated professionals that apply their specialized knowledge and skills to recommend a course of preventive or corrective action that will help people lead more productive and satisfying lives,
  • trained to understand not only the medical and physical limitations of a disability or injury, but also the psychosocial factors that affect the functioning of the whole person – their health and their wellness, and 
  • a regulated medical profession; occupational therapists must be registered with their provincial regulator in order to practice legally in Canada.

 
Occupational therapists work in a variety of settings including: home and community, institutions (including hospitals), industry, business and government.
