Competencies for Occupational Therapists in Canada (2021) Now in Effect

The Competencies for Occupational Therapists in Canada. ACOTRO, ACOTUP & CAOT (2021) are now in effect.  These Competencies reflect the broad range of skills and abilities required of all occupational therapists in Canada at every stage of their career. 

French and English versions of the 2021 Competencies are available.

Note: the 2011 Essential Competencies of Practice For Occupational Therapists in Canada have been withdrawn. Watermarked copies are available in French and English for reference purposes only.

This year, the College's Prescribed Regulatory Education Program (PREP) was the National eLearning Module on the Competencies for Occupational Therapists in Canada.

This eLearning Module was designed to help prepare and educate occupational therapists about the new Competencies for Occupational Therapists in Canada. It was developed with the Association of Canadian Occupational Therapy Regulatory Organizations (ACOTRO) in partnership with occupational therapy regulators across the country.
