Message from Sharon Eadie, Executive Director:

October 2017 – Marking OT Month in a Climate of Change

October is generally a month for celebration for the occupational therapy profession in Canada.  In Manitoba the mood is modulated by the uncertainty of the impacts of the current and impending changes to the MB healthcare landscape. As a profession, occupational therapy has a great deal to offer to a system that needs to focus on restorative and primary care.


COTM recently conducted a member survey seeking input on the key information members hope to receive at the October 24th AGM at the Caboto Centre.  The AGM will once again be held with the MB Society of Occupational Therapists.  All are encouraged to stay for the MSOT AGM to learn of the many efforts MSOT as undertaken to gather information about the MB Health and Winnipeg Regional Health Authority announcements and to advocate for Manitobans and for the profession. MSOT will also be providing an update on their exploration of becoming a chapter of the Canadian Association of Occupational Therapists.  You are encouraged to learn all you can about this work.
 

The COTM survey also asked for your input on changes to the COTM website – many will know that at minimum it would be ideal to have the facility to log into the COTM Member Portal via the website.  This is one of many features COTM anticipates adding to its soon to be released Request for Proposal for website upgrades.
 

Lastly, please look for information about the soon to be launched OT Online Directory – a tool for the public, employers and others to confirm the registration of MB occupational therapists.
 

We invite you to provide COTM with ideas as to what you want to see on the COTM website and any functions you think would benefit our users.
As always, if in your visit to the COTM website, you do not see or find the information you are seeking, please let us know by contacting us at Website_feedback@cotm.ca

COTM Executive Director
