Canadian Association of Occupational Therapists


 CAOT Retired Member Network



The CAOT Retired Member Network started in 2016 in response to CAOT members, who are retired or considering retirement, who expressed a desire to remain in touch with the profession and CAOT. The Purpose and Objectives were determined in collaboration with those who either attended one of the first two meetings or expressed interest in the Network.

Any CAOT members who wish to join the Network may contact either of the Co-Chairs (see below). Either CAOT retired members or CAOT members approaching retirement may participate.


To support CAOT retired members or occupational therapists approaching retirement to remain connected with and contributing to their profession and the broader community.

     3. To advocate about issues affecting CAOT retired members;
     4. To provide feedback to CAOT about the needs of retired members;
     5. To provide mentorship to practicing occupational therapists and others.
