Message from Sharon Eadie, Executive Director. July 2017:

Honouring our Past and Shaping our Future

This was the title of the national Canadian Association of Occupational Therapists (CAOT) conference in Charlottetown, PEI in late June.  I had the good fortune to attend this event along with three days of regulatory meetings and the Occupational Therapy Canada (OTC) forum.
The theme of the OTC event was the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Calls to Action.  As a member of the planning committee – representing the national OT regulators group – we were hoping to assist leaders in the OT organizations community to gain important knowledge regarding indigenous issues.  There were approximately 50 individuals from the Alliance of Canadian Occupational Therapy Provincial Associations (ACOTPA), the Association of Canadian Occupational Therapy Regulatory Organizations (ACOTRO), the Association of Canadian Occupational Therapy University Programs (ACOTUP), the Canadian Association of Occupational Therapists, and the Canadian Occupational Therapy Foundation (COTF).  Along with two indigenous occupational therapists, two individuals from the academic OT community who are seen as allies, and a Mi’kmaq elder, we spent a day of learning; we departed with a personal challenge to make decisions with consideration of this new knowledge.  The day was filled with many poignant moments – it was fitting that this day of reflection was being held on National Aboriginal Day.  I left with a feeling that we were being tasked with the need to not just honour but in the case of indigenous issues, to “Challenge the Past”, or at least the narratives of the past.
As I write this, the staff of COTM are reflecting on matters much closer to home – we are debriefing on the COTM 2017 renewal.  We are happy to share that approximately 550 of our 750 members completed their renewal using the online system.  It has positioned COTM staff to be free from significant data entry – time that can be devoted to other pressing commitments.  We are working to modify the online system to greatly enhance the user experience for next year.
We are grateful for your patience as we build an IT system at the same time that we are modifying aspects of the COTM Continuing Competence Program and more specifically a CCP member portal.  From the first member meetings about the CCP, members have asked for a member portal.  The IT development process offered this opportunity.
We look forward to seeing you at the October AGM – scheduled for Tuesday, October 24th.  Details will follow.
We have recently completed the COTM Managing Client Information – Meeting Legislative Obligations document – it should be available to you over the coming month.
And lastly, stay tuned for a member survey on a whole variety of COTM activities – we are eager to have your feedback.
Best of the summer to you and yours!
 

Sharon Eadie, O.T. Reg. (MB)
COTM Executive Director
