Welcome to the new COTM Blog

According to Wikipedia, a blog (a combination of the words "web" and "log") is a discussion or informational site published on the World Wide Web. Blogs are generally comprised of individual entries or posts displayed in reverse chronological order (the most recent post appears first).

The COTM Blog will be a multi-author blog with posts written by COTM staff or guest authors to discuss and inform Manitoba OT's about current regulatory matters, such as the Continuing Competence Program (CCP). The blog will be a dynamic and interactive place on the COTM site where OTs will be able to comment on posts.

The COTM Blog has an RSS feed so that OTs can sign up to receive "push" notification of changes in the blog when updates are made. Typically, updates in other areas of the website will be referred to in the blog so the RSS feed will give you a heads up for other COTM web content changes. If you want to know more about RSS feeds,  you can start with the Wikipedia entry at
