New Emergency Orders: Re-deployment of health care professionals in Ontario

On Friday, April 9, 2021, the Ontario Government introduced new emergency orders that permit the re-deployment of health professionals working for Ontario Health and Home and Community Care Support Services to hospitals. Learn more about these orders on the government website.

Earlier in the pandemic, the College developed a series of Q & As to guide occupational therapists who may have been re-deployed to other settings. That guidance has been updated to address questions we have received regarding scope of practice. View the Q & A section on our COVID-19 page.
