Why Run for Election to the Board?

Members of the Board of Directors represent the public interest in decision-making. The Board is made up of members of the occupational therapy profession and members of the public who are appointed by the government of Ontario.

The Board sets the strategy for the College and makes decisions to ensure the public receives ethical, competent care from Ontario’s occupational therapists.

Involvement on the Board provides occupational therapists with rewarding opportunities to contribute to both public protection and the future of the occupational therapy profession.

Board members are expected to attend four full-day Board meetings every year and serve on at least one regulatory committee. Learn more about the College Board and Committees

*Effective April 1, 2021, the College Council will be referred to as the Board or Board of Directors. This change is reflected in the College bylaws.
