CAOT-Qc Membership Benefits
CAOT-Qc is your provincial representative. Together we strengthen occupational therapy, building excellence for the profession and better health and well-being for Quebecers.
Occupational therapists registered to work in Quebec are not required to complete the National Occupational Therapy Certification Examination (NOTCE) in order to be a member of CAOT.
Dedicated leadership. The CAOT-Qc Managing Director works on behalf of members to deliver chapter-specific initiatives that affect your practice. The CAOT-Qc Advisory Committee helps to prioritize chapter activities based on a broad spectrum of occupational therapy input.
Professional development. CAOT-Qc is collaborating with a group of researchers to develop new skills for Quebec occupational therapists. A training program to become an ‘agent of change’ for the profession is in development, to increase representation and visibility for occupational therapy across the region.
Networking. The CAOT-Qc community is growing through face-to-face meetings to network and discuss the profession’s issues. In the past twelve months, over 10 membership forums have been hosted, mostly at our universities.
Public awareness. Through a partnership developed with Proxim pharmacies, 14 public awareness events were held to provide CAOT-Qc volunteers with an opportunity to share falls prevention education with the public.
Recognition. Members of CAOT-Qc are eligible to nominate colleagues CAOT awards and to receive one. Nominations for the CAOT-Qc Outstanding Occupational Therapist of the Year Award are accepted each year in the fall. Each year Quebec members are also eligible for regional awards for Fieldwork Educator Award of Excellence and Student Award.
