April 19, 2018
Effective July 1, 2018, occupational therapists will have authority to report concerns regarding a client’s fitness to drive directly to the Ministry of Transportation.

Join our webinar on Tuesday May 29, 2018 from 12:00p.m. to 1:00p.m. to learn more. Sign up here: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/3012802987710329091

The College and Elizabeth Weldon, Program Advisor, Licensing Services Branch, Ministry of Transportation, will be discussing how recent changes to the Highway Traffic Act, 1990 may impact your occupational therapy practice.

Learn about changes to the legislation that address:

  • who can report
  • what new conditions and functional impairments should be reported, and
  • how a report should be made.
The College is currently developing an Interim Guide to Discretionary Reporting for Fitness to Drive to assist OTs with:

  • understanding their reporting roles and responsibilities and
  • implementing relevant changes within their current practice setting.
Details of the Interim Guide will be shared in the webinar and you will have an opportunity to ask questions.
